I wanted to procrastinate on my bedtime routine, but I told myself that it wasn't going to get any easier if I were more tired, so I did it. I think the main reason I've been going to bed too late is procrastination on my bedtime routine.
I just got back from spending time with my family. I'm going to take my last dose of pills, then get ready for bed. I've been getting up at 6am but not going to sleep any earlier, and it's catching up with me.
I think I'd like to start using my new-found morning time to study Chinese. I'll spend an hour on it each morning.
The backup is running. I don't feel well. I'm a little queasy from the migraine, which still hasn't gone away. I have to leave for my mother's place very soon, so I'm just going to lie down with my eyes closed for a few minutes.
Hi Folks I'm having a day off.
Enjoy your day off. :)
I'm showered and dressed, and the bed is made.
It feels sort of odd today. Not bad, though. My circle of friends and relatives are doing their own thing today. Last night I spent the evening with friends and their families, which was nice. It seems sort of odd to work when everyone around isn't, but having an entire day to procrastinate is like the cartoon of the driver who stopped his car on the street beside the dog who was chasing it and said, "You caught it. What are you gonna do now?".
Make a plan and post it.
Someone called, apologizing for calling on Christmas, and asked about my schedule for doing a small job this week. I told him now would be best. That way it won't interfere with things later in the week, and I can use a bit of income. It'll also more than cover workshop expenses for today, so I can clean up or whatever in there without spending "backwards".
Small work project
Anything additional I wish in the workshop
Sorting through house
Go to meeting tonight if the alternative is doing nothing
Even though I'm not even Christian, Christmas seems like a Definite Day Off. This is one day a year when I feel entitled not to do anything.
I got my little work project done very quickly, and I don't have to fit it in this week. Had a nice conversation with my client, talking for some time about procrastination of all things. For the rest of the day I'm going to be on the computer some, put things in their places, read, and go have a snack with an elderly relative.
Have a nice rest of the day.
Rough day. Really lonely. Went to a meeting tonight, and then to the recovery center for a while afterwards. Glad they were there. Glad to see some folks that I'm not usually happy to be around. Humility. I need to prepare for or prevent this from happening again.
I just need to make a plan for the rest of this week (year). If anyone reading this notices that I don't sometime tomorrow, please remind me. Appreciate it.
It sounds like you're having a relaxing day. I'm fighting a migraine, which is a pain. I took meds, but it's not gone yet. Maybe I need more. I'm going to my mother's apartment soon - headache needs to go away.
> ...having an entire day to procrastinate is like the cartoon of the driver who stopped his car on the street beside the dog who was chasing it and said, "You caught it. What are you gonna do now?".
LOL! :D I've been having a lazy day - browsing for Christmas graphics, and watching ET. I have one more gift to wrap.
My brother and I have made an uneasy peace again. I'll be meeting him and his family at my mother's apartment this afternoon.
I hope things go well this afternoon. Don't go with high expectations or a resentment. And make sure you empty your emotional ammunition before leaving. Resentment, discord, and uncertainty (sp?) is a major excuse for procrastinating. "Look what you made me do." has been a stupid reason for most of my negative behaviors. We both seem to share alot of similarities--many being negative tendencies--so I often have a good idea of "where you're at". I'll send positive thoughts your way!
>We both seem to share alot of similarities--many being negative tendencies--so I often have a good idea of "where you're at".
Yes, we seem to have a lot of similarities. We're born days apart - we're astrological twins. :)
I don't have any resentment towards my brother, but I'm nervous because he's so volatile. The smallest remark can set him off, and I can't always anticipate what will do it.
One of the good things about getting up early is that I can waste time in the morning without wasting half the day. I had to search high and low this morning for one of the presents I bought (finally found it), and then I spent more time looking for nice Christmas graphics to put in the thread starter. I got up at 6am, and this is all I've done so far (besides making breakfast).
