Thank you, gals & guys, for being here! :)

e's check in

Great threadstarter! It makes me happy to think that this fellowship is continuing to grow.

Today was a very productive day. I got to work early, had a short lunch, and worked continuously until mid-evening. I am happy because the project at work came off well and it was fun to do. There is more for tomorrow, but that is okay.

For the moment I am feeling a bit down: I am learning new things that I need to change in my behavior and set new limits. I feel a bit tender about it, so want to post here to own it instead of acting out through burying my head in the sand.

Accomplished: dishes, meds, water, project,

yet to accomplish: taxesssssssss, practicum work, nighttime routine, 10 minutes of paperwork, go over expectations of kids for their day off school. quiet time, eft, journaling, practice accepting the things I cannot change

Cold and icey today, what a way to start Spring! The loose end bug and clutter bug are doing their respective things here this week. I have alot of laundry to do, some paperwork to finish and submit, and food to buy, so I may do that today, and work later this evening. This is scarey thinking, as sometimes that work just doesn't get done. Can anyone identify?

a very ineffable thursday

First of all, I'm going to sleep by 11:05 so I can wake up happy in the morning.
After breakfast with some friends, probably about 9:30AM, I'll be packing up my things and a lunch and heading over to the UD library, where I plan to spend the whole day doing the following:
reading Being and Time
reading Joachim's commentary on Aristotle's Ethics
working on the screenplay
working on a short story
reading Spiegel and Harper's in the breaks.
At noon, I'll take a half-hour lunch break, and at three I'll go out for a walk.
At six, it's time to go to the gym, and then it's dinner and damn good times!

semper incipe,

This is a simple start

I just need to do three things:
1.  Make up my bed (I feel like I have at least tried if my bed is made)
2.  Collect all the tax info to take to CPA
3.  Do something fun with grandson (w/me for spring break, Have to preserve granny's personna as a "fun and cool person"!
And absolutely, positively refuse to feel bad about all the other undone stuff.  If I get all the tax info together, that is quite a bit of work.  And listening to grandson talk all day is a labor of love!

Not too hard, yes, no?


grail's Thursday...

Oh hey movingalong, I didn't see this!
Thank you so very much!

"So far, I hung out the washing before I went to work today, and I got to work on time (uh, there's a range, so maybe it was just not-late, but yay!), and an Aunt I haven't seen in a while picked me up for lunch and I got her to txt me 10 minutes in advance so I actually got outside in time and didn't leave her waiting...

I have 10 tests I need to do at work in the next... 3 hours and 10 minutes (and as much other work as possible).

And then I've just got nothing urgent except going home, so I want to pick up something from a friends, and sometime this evening work on preliminary research for a wee ceremony I'm going to tomorrow night (and I've got all tomorrow too to work on it since it's a holiday).

Oh, and I should have gone to the hardware store. Bugger. Not possible now. :(
(Abort weekend plans! Abort!)"

I did no work for nearly the

I did no work for nearly the first 2 hours, and then really hammered it and did 6 out of 10 tests in the last hour.

I remembered to pick up the thing from a friends, although they weren't home themselves.

I got sucked into in a used bookstore for nearly 3 hours, mostly re-reading a book (didn't buy anything Embarassed) and then I came home.

I've thought about the research (and did some of that when I should have been working...).
I should go to sleep now, since it's... already Friday?

movingalong's Thursday plans

On Thursday, I need to:
work at a reasonable pace
not get bogged down in details
Listen to my boss
take 'serenity breaks'

movingalong's Thursday morning check-in

I have had coffee.

I am dressed.

Leaving to go to work soon.
