Check In

Put off the 7:00 meeting last night. So, I failed again.
I DID watch Andy Griffith...does that count?
I wish I could meet with all of you... I've gained so much from this site in the short time I've been here. Is there a PA meeting in Northern Kentucky/Cincinnati? does any one know? By the way, does anyone use the chatbox? I also tried the phone conference the other day and I will be there this morning at 9:00 sharp...any takers today??? Don't know what I'll say, but I'll be there!

Today has been a crazy day, lots of classes+trying to do a big experiment

This means I have all my homework+senior thesis work to get done this evening, argh!

To do next:
Next 20 minutes: order macroeconomics book, tidy my work area
At 6:45: leave for Ash Wednesday service
Come home when that's done, have some dinner
Finish organizing my papers+email profs. about missing class for interviews
Choose 2 papers for 7.19+make intro presentation
House meeting at 9pm
Do Spanish HW (try to get ahead a few days if I can)
Senior thesis chores--fix WM, email Scott, visualize canon. pathway, redo scanning, run with THEME graph (sounds like a lot, but I hope it will take under an hour)

Journey 12:15

Been working nonstop on big project with co-workers.  We're making progress, and I can't goof off because I have company.  It's all good today :)

Wishing you all an enjoyable and productive day

Hi everyone. Hope you all do

Hi everyone. Hope you all do well today. There's one thing I hope to finish for work today. I also have a "low level" mess everywhere, so doing something there would be a really good idea. Seems I don't do cleaning--or alot of stuff--till it gets pretty bad. A friend from my 12 step program does cleaning for a living and can use some work. Only thing is, I need to clean everything here before I'd have her come to clean. Know what I mean? Sometimes asking for help is hard to do.
To do:
(X)morning routine
 (X)cancel insurance appt. (no time)
(X) finish this morning's project for work
 (X)take a period of time to just put stuff away
 do something spiritual
 (X)do some general cleanup outside
 (X)feed the dog next door
 move my spare car before they mark it as disabled
 (X)call friend who hasn't been well
 check in here at lunchtime


As a person who is chronically messy and who ABHORS housework, I identify with your plight. For a long time I had a cleaning person coming in twice a week, and I hated cleaning up for her. I no longer can afford someone like that, but I do use flylady reminders to poke me about the laundry, the dishes, etc. It has helped me to remember to plan, to take little steps towards neatness, and to realize that half of what takes so much time is my procrastination! I now set the timer for two minutes or 5 minutes and then walk away when I am done - or else I don't and keep going, realizing that the chore I chose is almost done.

pro's CI - 9:55am

It's late, I'm not feeling well, blah, blah, blah. Gotta get dressed and get out of here!!!!

Procrastination is the grave in which opportunity is buried.

Feeling much more like my normal self today, or rather my usual ABnormal self lol . ..

not organized yet, going to check email and check status of some outstanding issues on my big project, then back with a todo list in an hour or so . . . .
