pro's CI - 6:20pm

I'm feeling bad that I didn't post about the Chatbox changes earlier - warn about clearing the cache. People had problems using it and I could have prevented this. :(

I baked bread. It's in the oven now. I think I may have let it rise too long again. It only rose a half hour the second time, but it rose really high. This is going to be very fluffy whole wheat bread. Maybe I'm putting in too much gluten.

I'm thinking of installing FlashChat here and let people choose which they like best. But if I do, then after I do, I have to get back to productive activity!

Procrastination is the grave in which opportunity is buried.

e belated friday ci

Hello everyone, I hope that you enjoyed whatever you did this holiday. I had 4 teenagers in my living room playing ps2 games until 3am on Christmas Eve, so got very little sleep and woke late. Everything got thrown off. Breakfast was late, I felt like I had disappointed many people, and that threw off supper. My mother-in-law came over with a bad cough and sat around waiting for dinner to be made. I made duckling, but kept running out of energy: my back was hurting and I kept having to stop and do some strengthening excercises. I have not been to a 12 step meeting in a week and a half and I could feel it in my impatience with everyone, especially with myself. I would like to go to one tonight. 

I decided to sleep at my sister's house last night, just to get some distance from everyone and had a good conversation with her about how things are these days for me. I am coming to the realization that things may have really died in my relationship, and that is sad. We shall see: I am not choosing what to do yet, but I can tell that I have made an internal choice. Therefore, I am not getting much done. I want to escape for a while and see no reason not to. There are too many people around for me to be productive: my sister's family has been here since the ice storm three weeks ago! She hopes to be able to go home tomorrow, if she can get down the driveway. Still no phone, but she finally has electricity. 

I would like to make bits of progress tonight. I would like to have the house straightened out, the dishes washed, and a pleasant healthy meal. I would like to watch a movie and veg out otherwise. 

Peace, everyone.

Journey 5:30

Back from the grocery store, also dh gave me a gift certificate to Sports Authority so I stopped by there to pick up a few things while they are having a 2-day sale.   Of course the place was a madhouse, but I was able to get some much needed trainers and exercise pants.   I like capri tights and they just don't make them any more.   Everybody is wearing the baggier capris.   But my tights are getting threadbare which could be dangerous!    So I became a slave to fashion and got the baggy pants.  

I'm taking a short break then putting away the groceries and making a quick dinner.   I don't know how the week went by so fast.  I didn't really do anything except get a little extra sleep and do a lot of holiday stuff.    I guess that's how it should be . . I have three days before I go back to work.

kromer 1 (PT) CI

Had a very nice chirstmas yesterday. But today I'm supposed to do some work, and I'm having trouble getting motivated.

After today, I have 2 full days with my parents in California. And I have all this work I've promised to get done...ahh! This afternoon I'm spending time with a friend I haven't seen in 6 months, and tomorrow I'm going shopping with my mom. So I won't have time to get that much work done, but I can make some progress.

Today I'm going to:
*Make list of WM doc tasks (for reals, have been planning to do this all break)
*Email out list of coregulators
*Start scan w/ new thresh
*Start calcs w/ higher cap

And also clean up my room.

Right now I'm going to get lunch for brothers and grandpa, clean up room and head to friend's house; I'll get back around 4:30 and 5:00 and work through these small work tasks this evening.

Hello everyone, and Happy Boxing Day to you, too!

I had a phone interview for project L this morning, so I will spend some time today listening to the recording and transcribing it and going through updating the Project L draft.


I've heard nothing on Project V from my original information source, and I'm feeling anxious about that, too.


I'm going to go to the chatbox

Recycler CI 10:45am EST

Hi Pro Buddies!

Because of feeling 70+% motivation this morning (comparatively high for me) and being off from work, I've been getting a slow string of things done this morning; since the momentum's been going, I haven't checked in earlier.

I took some dresser drawers & contents to the new condo; by moving everything around, I am also starting to put away some holiday things. This is actually kind of fun for me, so I hope to get 1-2 more episodes of that done after lunch ;)

Positives: The holiday & week went well; I have a 12-step meeting tonight. However, despite the positives, I am having some Emotional Surges, so it's a good thing the meeting is tonight. Typing this has helped me think of the idea that maybe I can make some phone calls for support today, too.

Humor: I saved money today. During the month I had seen some things in the stores. While out doing errands this morning, I stopped at the stores to see if they had a clearance on what I was interested in. Hee hee they must have sold it, so I couldn't buy it, so I saved money whether I wanted to or not! ;) While I liked the items, I am probably equally well off without them so no big deal (pun intended? ;) Hee hee. I'm going to be in and out the rest of the day, so not sure if I will update my CI. We'll see.

12:45pm. I ate leftover turkey for lunch, so I'm once again ready to pass out on the recliner lol. However, before passing out, I will update my CI :)

Moving dolls from one storage box, to display, then back into another storage box, happens weekly/monthly. So far today I have freed up 3 under-the-bed size storage boxes. I will put some deboxed dolls in there, which will free up three large storage boxes to put the holiday dolls in. I'm going to take my break, snooze, then start on this next round ;)

3:50pm. Cinderella dolls are on display now :) While I still have a few other dolls/accessories to add in with them, at least the boxed dolls are out :) For me these dolls add a lot of cheer to my mid-winter :) [What I'm trying to say is, we each have to find out what works for us ;)

Next: I have a couple more things to take over to the new condo. Since I'm getting ready to do that, I think I will just close down the rental condo for the evening. Later I will go to my evening 12 step meeting. Talk to you tomorrow! :)

Have a great day, everyone! :)


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

Journey 10 am

Slept late then goofed around on the computer for a couple hours.   I need to get back into the habit of going to bed early and getting up early before I have to go back to work on Tuesday.

I need to get out of the house so I'm going to do Saturday stuff today.   Making a grocery list now.

pro's first check-in - 9:52am

I was up most of the night, doing stupid stuff on the computer (researching something that doesn't matter). I want to be more productive today - put horrible-yesterday behind me.

Right now I'm making the bed and I want to make bread, since I'm out of it. I also want to go to Bed, Bath, and Beyond to get a few things (hopefully on sale), and stop at my storage room. I also need to pick up some eggs - out of those.

hugs to Pro :)

Hi Pro!
