Have a Honey of a Day, Everyone! :)

Falcon Sunday eve. CI

To do Sunday evening:

  • Look up & take online test
  • Send emails if I feel like it
  • Brush teeth, etc.
  • Don't do anything else
  • GO TO BED.  EARLY.  If it's ridiculously early by the time I'm ready for bed, I can read in bed for a while, but dammit I'm getting myself tucked in early, not late, tonight.

To Don't list for Sunday evening. . . Don't:

  • Surf the net.  At all.  Or I'll be up past midnight again.  Not doing that tonight.
  • Read past, let's say 8:30, unless I'm reading in bed. 


Weekly 12-Step Meeting in Chatbox today

Meeting is held:

  • Sunday morning in Hawaii/Alaska
  • Sunday afternoon in the Americas
  • Late Sunday evening in Europe/Africa
  • Very early Monday morning in Asia/Australia/NZ

Exact time/Timezone details here:

This is a 12-Step meeting.


  • No obiligation to attend!
  • No need to mention if you are coming or not!
  • Just do what is right for you !
  • (This reminder is for informational purposes only).

NOTE:  The chatbox was upgraded in April 2008.  It no longer keeps a log of what was said.  Whatever you say there,  will not be readable after the meeting.  Sometimes the chat scroll remains for an hour or so, but it does fade off.  There is no permanent record.

I don't want to create a feeling of "obligation".  Many of us suffer from issues with "Demand Resistance", and obligation would just make things worse.

Also, I wanted to make it clear that we don't take attendance.

Each person should come or not come according to their own inner guidance -- i.e. the Higher Power of their understanding.

Journey 9:30

Slept late again, which is ok, but I didn't plan to sleep in today.  I haven't heard from the kids, so not sure if they are coming for dinner tonight or tomorrow night.  Which makes it hard to plan.  I'm going to assume they aren't coming tonight, so I'll make a "regular" dinner but plan to have enough just in case.

Today, I need to figure out the mess that is my checkbook.  I was doing well in keeping up with my finances but I have messed something up and my checkbook balance is off.  I'm so bad with money.  I need an accountant!  I'm counting this as an improvement though, as I used to think all my financial problems were "not my fault" and just refuse to face them.  AT least now I can accept the fact that I'm just not very good with money and I need lots and lots of structure around my finances so that I don't get off track again.

Today is my daughter's birthday!  We don't have anything special planned for today as we're planning a trip next month which will be her birthday present.  We do have ice cream cake though.  Yum. 

I'm going to go drink a cup of coffee and set my MITs for the day.   I do want to take some time to relax today, it is a holiday and birthday weekend after all, yet I don't want to waste the day either.

Have a great rest of the weekend all!

Journey 3:15

It's been FIVE hours since I last posted?   Let's see, what have I done?  I sorted a mountain of laundry, made the beds, straightened the dining room, and bathed the dogs.  I'd like to get a good bit more done today . . .

Recycler CI 7:45am EST

Hi Winnie and Pro Winners! :)

I think it's going to be sunny today, at least in my area :)

Done: rode bike, appreciated nature (+ saw a real live, huge Barn Owl), did qigong, made small amount of progress on 3rd floor room, cooked breakfast.

Next: Today's Goal: straighten Main Level!!! You can do it, Recycler!!! lololol

Then, go to early movie with friend. After lunch, see where I am in terms of what else needs to be straightened for today & tomorrow ;) Goof around on computer ;)

Have a great day, everyone! :)


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

Recycler CI 7:45pm EST Company coming tomorrow!


I'm glad I had started straightening the main level. My friend and I had planned to get together tomorrow. Today I found out, their plan is to come over to my condo lol Eeeks!!! lol. Actually this is a good thing for me, because it is Motivational.

With being on vacation and travelling during the last several weeks, and having my computer down, there hasn't been as much housecleaning & tidying as needed. So it's time for me to Get With The Program!!! lol

This afternoon/evening I am still in process on straightening the main level. I hope to work on it for a while longer, then again in the morning.

I hope everyone has a great night! :)


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