I took a shower and I'm really glad I did. It was a hot day. And tomorrow, it will be much easier to get out because I'm already showered. Tomorrow I want to be at work at 9am!!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Procrastination is the grave in which opportunity is buried.
I washed the dishes - that's something. I should be in bed, but I'm not. I still need to brush my teeth. I'm thinking about taking a shower before bed, but I'm not sure I will.
I got the committe people emailed earlier today and I'm down to only 4 papers to grade. I actually have a lot more, but only 4 left of the one I'm currently working on (: I'm getting ready to go walk and I might try to do one more before I go to bed. As you can probably tell, grading papers is my least favorite thing about being a teacher.
I've had a "fun" day. I drove an hour and 45 minutes to attend a presentation that is not today but NEXT THURSDAY...oops! However, I would like to point out that I would have been on time-had the conference been held today (: I'm now back in my office for about 45 minutes until my next appointment. Here's my list:
Email committeeWork on grading roles assignment-8 left to grade
Hope everyone is having a more productive day than me!
I cleared my spam folder. That's something and I needed to do it, but it's not what I most needed to do.
Okay - I committed to my therapist that I would spend a half hour filing tonight. I can do this. It's just a half hour. If that seems too long, maybe I can do 15 minutes at a time - set the timer.
I also need to water the plants tonight - I never watered them last weekend.
Just wanted to check and see how you were doing(: How's the filing going?
I'm too tired now. I'm not going to do anything tonight. I'm just going to go to bed and set the alarm so I'm up early tomorrow. I can't be late for work tomorrow because I have an early morning meeting. Oh well.
I had a therapy session tonight, and I talked about my procrastination. I usually don't even mention the little problem of not having filed tax returns since 2003. I asked her to hold me accountable, and to ask me each week what I'd done. I committed to doing a half hour of filing tonight, and 15 minutes on my pile every day after work.
I regret it already. I really don't feel like doing this. :(
Well, I didn't get a whole lot done at work today besides go to lots of meetings. These things go on the list again for tomorrow:
Change Request for Oct. 6 - Must do this before noon Friday!!F is on vacation so ask R. to approve it.Project #2 - install on sandbox
But the good news is that the dishes are done and the coffee is made, and video games here I come!
Everyone's having a bad day - must be the full moon - or was that yesterday??
The full moon was yesterday. It was the harvest moon, according to my almanac.
Argh!!!! I keep getting so off track today. I was looking at all my school email and just totally got panicked and distracted and wanted to control everything NOW -- and meanwhile I haven't done the work my dissertation coach assigned.
I desperately need to center.
Luckily, my sponsor in another program called and I committed to setting a timer or 15 minutes and stopping looking at email after that. I did that more or less.
Now I have to: post on here (doing it) meditate start doing my homework assignment, which is journaling THEN I can worry about the recalled library books . ..
Thanks as always.
Leaving for work now (late, late, late)...
Looks like we're all late starters today. Well, I guess we're all late starters every day :)
Done:Gym (only 2 minutes late for class lol)Email 9:30 meeting Call Help Desk about the funny noise my computer is making

Other stuff needs to be done - before PA I would have put them all on my list, but since I'm putting it down here in black and white I'm only listing the things I really think I can get done. It's a new way of looking at it. It feels funny. lol

I forgot to set up the Thursday thread last night. Someone else could have, of course.
I fell asleep really early last night, and woke up late. I don't know what that's about. I've only just got up and I'm already late.
I have a heavy day at work today. Happily I have a therapy appointment later.
probably still tired from last weekend!
