pro's CI - 1:55pm

I'm dressed - that's something. But I can't seem to do anything. I'm not feeling well at all. At times I think I have the energy to do somethinng, but when I stand up I realize I don't. :(

We have Monday off from work so I still have some time.

Procrastination is the grave in which opportunity is buried.

I don't know how much I'll be able to do today because I've been sick, but I'd like to water the plants and work on my pile.

Procrastination is the grave in which opportunity is buried.

e's check in

Today started off pretty productively. I got up, did the water, meds thing, got rid of some things under the kitchen sink, straightened the entry hotspot, but I have slithered off into a chocolate breakfast, as TODAY I am working on last year's taxes. I am procrastinating by doing other productive things, and I am giving myself a hard time about it .

meal plans,
change sheets
scrub tubs
paperwork (in 15 minute chunks)
sew a button
pick up mended jewelry
hair cut?
straighten out pocketbook, glove, hat mess
allow myself to let go of things I don't really love in my house
shoe pile in the closet
dust mop and dust
keep kitchen sink clean and empty
quiet time

I do that too!

I never really thought of it that much, but doing other "important" tasks instead of the planned ones IS procrastination. Thanks for making me more aware of that. It can only help.

other important tasks

I was SO good at that today! I baked brownies for my family, did a lengthy grocery shopping, delivered an overdue gift for my colleague's baby, and kept the kitchen in very good condition. What did I NOT do? Very much of my tax stuff. I worked on it for all of .... 30 minutes total today. It is like lifting off a bandage to see how bad a wound is and then covering it back up because looking at it makes it feel worse!


For tonight: clear the bed and clearly label the tax piles (so I don't have to redo THAT again)
brush teeth
wash face
flaxseed oil
sleep early

gratitude list:
seeing friends
being able to carry on a conversation in broken greek
the forward movement on taxes and financial aid
M's getting early acceptance to Mt. Holyoke
compliments on looking thinner
being willing and then feeling much better for having taken flaxseed oil
