kromer 12:30 CI

Just got back from thanksgiving break.

I'm adjusting to the west->east coast time change, so I'm going to be up for a little bit...and I don't want to completely waste it. I'm going to unpack, do a load of laundry and read a paper. I'll try to be in bed by 1:30. I may not be tired enough to  go to sleep, but I need to try to get back on a reasonable schedule

pro's check-out - midnight

My teeth are brushed and I'm ready for bed. I don't think I'll be able to sleep, but I'll get into bed and watch something on TV. If I'm in front of the computer, I'll never sleep.

Procrastination is the grave in which opportunity is buried.

Sammy ci :: 4:00 pm

I've just returned from dropping off Z in Madison. S came with me, which was great, because he lives there, so he was a great navigator. I don't think I would have gotten home without him....and it was nice to see both of them for the first time in ....3 or 4 months.

Now its time to start that paper. Its only 2 pages, so my goal is to be have it done by 6pm. My Godparents might be coming over for dinner tonight....which would be nice...I haven't seen them for a few months.

I'd like to get together with a couple friends tonight, but I'm waiting for THEM to call ME. I'm still feeling a little used after what happened this summer, so I told myself I wouldn't put effort into planning anything over Thanksgiving break. We'll see how well that works might end up making me feel even more depressed in the end....but it's worth a try, i guess...

gah. I'm not sure whats

gah. I'm not sure whats going on in my brain right now...I want to get my paper done...heck, I even want to START writing it...NOW! but some part of me is still resisting...I MUST overcome! Here I go....

Back to work

MMmmmmm... I just ate a DELICIOUS dinner.... now back to work. Obviously I didn't finish my paper by 6. I have been distracted by the television...thats what I get for working in the living room, i guess...Now I'm moving into my bedroom. I cleaned it (REALLY cleaned it) this weekend, so I have a nice clean space and a big desk to work on. I need to have my paper emailed to my writing partner by 9pm. Onward!

pro's CI - 2:15pm

I'm showered and dressed, bed is made, and I'm eating some lunch.

pro's CI - 1:30pm

Time is flying today. I'm not doing well in managing it.

I should get dressed and make the bed. That always helps me to focus. Maybe go out and take a walk - it's sunny.

I need to go through my Inbox - includes going through the new member requests for this forum.

Sammy ci :: 9:30 am

Good Morning,

I stayed up a little too late last night (like pro). I just didn't feel sleepy, and I was feeling a little abandoned when none of the friends who are home from college didn't want to get together last night....I haven't gotten to see them yet over break, and most of them are leaving today.

To Do:

Call S, K, or K, or SOMEONE to help navigate. 

Drive Z to Madison to catch his bus back to school (leave at 12:00)

WRITE MARKETING PAPER (those always seem to trip me up.... its due tonight :-/ )

 Get some more Christmas decorating done

Maybe see a movie with K, S, and S tonight? 


But now its time for breakfast....home made waffles....yummmmmmm! Have a lovely Saturday everyone! 


Agnus checking in 9:30am

G'mornin' PA pals!  J and I never made it to the car show yesterday - took us all day to prepare and rent the scooter. We'll try again today. I have had the first few sips of coffee and called Mom, next will pray, commit food, shower/dress, walk TJ, pack lunch and hit the road!  Need to return the scooter by 4 p.m. (actually the guy said 4 p.m. to me and 5 p.m. to J - this hooks my procrast-addiction into thinking I can get away with being late and blame it on someone else's unclarity! But I want to adhere to the time he told me - plus I don't think J's stamina will hold up much past 3 anyway, which gives us an hour to drive back from the auto show.)  I'll check in again tonight...Hope everyone has a great day!

pro's first check-in - 8:48am

Perfect thread starter for a fall morning!

I stayed up a little too late last night, finishing up the chatbox changes. I hope that not too many people have cache problems (hangs until they clear their cache). Hope-Faith is in the chatbox, so at least one person is having no trouble. I'm going to be in the chatbox myself today. I have a specific project I want to complete today. Coffee first...

Thanks for the gorgeous thread starter, Recycler.  

I have a lot of things I want to do this weekend, but first I need to go out to the car and get the work computer and check the status of the systems, as I'm on call this week.  

Then MITs for the day, starting with planning menus for the week and making a grocery list.  There's a nasty cold drizzle outside so that makes me want to crawl back into bed . . . but not doin' that!

Recycler CI 7am EST

Hi Pro Buddies!

Having a good Saturday here so far.

This morning I've: eaten breakfast, taken my high blood pressure meds, started the dishwasher, started a load of clothes to wash, bagged up the trash, & started the bathroom swishies. Since it's raining, I'm not sure that I will take the trash to the dumpster immediately; I'll decide that in a moment. Next: finish bathroom swishies, go put gas in my car, then buy provisions for the week. I'll probably update my CI later.

1:40pm. After doing Part 1 of the bathroom swishies, the rain had slowed enough that I could take the trash to the dumpster, so that is done :) Put gas in my car and brought provisions for the week. Ate an early lunch. The leftover turkey is still putting me to sleep, so I lay down, which ended up being a little nap ;) Next I will do a social letter on the computer, while a load of clothes finishes drying. After that I might go to the Exercise Club for a bit? We'll see.

3:30pm. Folded &/or hung up the clothes after they finished drying. Did some stretching & stuff at the Exercise Club, showered, then dressed to go out in the cold again lol. Looked in some shops near the exercise club. Got postal mail out of the mailbox on the walk back to the condo. Put DVD by front door to take over to other condo. Thinking about having an early dinner, even though the turkey makes me sleepy ;) Will I go to a 6pm activity tonight? Since I'm kind of dazed today, it might be good for me to get out with others. I'll see how it goes later.

Have a great day, everyone! :)


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