May your day be full of stars !---------------------------------------------------
Busy day, I'm exhausted and need a little motivation to get through a last few things.*Go to lab DONE*Count samples DONE*Prep for expt. tomorrow DONE*Clean up DONE*Take bus home*Find and charge phone*Start laundry*Bed!
I'm more challenged today. This is why I am qualified for PA!!! ;)
I did have morning gym & work today. Due to rain and someone wanting to escort me to my car with their umbrella, I didn't go to evening gym.
Hmmm, at home I mapquested. I am only 1.5 miles from my work & gym, so I think I will just walk to work a couple of days a week (when it's not raining ;)
I also washed & dried one load of clothes today.I checked on some financial things.
Next, I am going to map-quest if I can walk to one of my weekend activities ;)
I enjoyed reading Hal's quotes today :)
Talk to you later! :)
Thank you, gals & guys, for being here! :)

Good morning! Not too many people in the forum this morning, huh?
I got a LOT done yesterday afternoon, which is a good thing because I just got to work today. Spent the morning with disability services at the college, arranging for a wheel chair for a few weeks.
I'm only working four hours today because the afternoon will be spent picking up my daughter's car before it gets impounded.
I'd better get with it then! I am still working on rebuilding standalone dump volumes so I'm going to work on that until it's finished. Shouldn't take more than an hour.
taking a 10-min break to get coffee and water and then getting to work. See you guys later
“The key is not to prioritize what’s on your schedule, but to schedule your priorities.” - Stephen Covey
Getting a slow start - posting to get myself moving - here I go !
standalone dumps updated - forgot there were two systems to do, so it took twice as long lol.
Now to get as much of the documentation done as I can before my 2 pm meeting. It's just around the corner and my boss is ALWAYS late (I think he's one of us) so I'm not getting there early.
LOL on pod bay doors quote!

to quote HAL: "I know I've made some very poor decisions recently, but I can give you my complete assurance that my work will be back to normal."
"I am putting myself to the fullest possible use, which is all I think that any conscious entity can ever hope to do."
On that note:Going to literally aim for a day "full of stars" and "putting myself to the fullest possible use".Hope to report back with a list of "starred" items that I have completed.
Ack!I have been struggling all day.
What I have done so far:
Note that I gave myself stars for both my failings and my successes.
I remembered that there is a passage in the book "Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions of A.A." ... within the chapter on Step 10 that starts with:"When evening comes, perhaps just before going to sleep, many of us draw up a balance sheet for the day" ....
In that section of that book it says:"Even when we have tried hard and failed, we may chalk that up as one of the greatest credits of all. Under these conditions, the pains of failure are converted into assets. Out of them we receive the stimulation we need to go forward."
Not a perfect day. But a day.
Now I get to sleep for a couple more hours, before I officially wake up again to start my Thursday.
Thank you, Moving, for reminding me why humility is such a key ingredient to recovery. It is not just okay, but benificial to fail, and I need to own my failures so that I can move forward.
a day with significant deep spiritual time's gotta be a winner in my book. way to go.
