Welcome to Sunday                                             keep starting....                 many drops fill a bucket

Recycler CI 3:55pm EST

Hi Pro Buddies and Snoopy! :)

Today I got up in time to cook breakfast, run the dishwasher, and go to my morning meeting. After getting back, I had enough energy to do settling-in MIT's in the kitchen. Over days/weeks/months I will probably get everything in the best location for whatever it is, but right now just getting it into a cupboard is good! ;)

Then I heated lunch, read a little bit, and took a mini-nap. I'm over at the rental condo now. I've carried out some more boxes to the car, and now having a little computer time. After this, will I drop some things off at Goodwill or wait until tomorrow?

Tonight: putter some more around the new condo. Write list of things to discuss. Call dad at usual time.

Should I go to the gym in the morning? Not sure. Will decide later.

Have a great night, everyone! :)



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

After hanging out with my friend this afternoon/evening, I goofed off for an hour, and now am tired and don't feel like working. But I'm going to push myself a bit. (Step by step). I need to:
1)Review 1 paper (30 min)
2)Make documentation plan (20 min)
3)Email TH (5 min)
4)Pack (15 min)
5)Clean kitchen (20 min)

This is totally doable...I'll work in the chatbox to stay on track and update when I accomplish each task.

Weekly online 12-step P.A. meeting in "meetings chatbox"

Procrastinators Anonymous weekly 12-Step meeting in "meetings chatbox".

Meeting is held:

  • Sunday morning in Hawaii/Alaska and Pacific Time
  • Sunday afternoon in the Americas
  • Later Sunday evening in Europe/Africa
  • Very early Monday morning in Asia/Australia/NZ

> Click here to find your timezone equivalent for today's meeting.

> Click here to find your timezone equivalent for next week's meeting.

Note: 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 is welcome to come or not come according to their own inner guidance -- i.e. the Higher Power of their understanding.

It works when we "work it". Let's do whatever it takes to find recovery. All are welcome.


e's new sunday

am grateful to be here this morning and infinately grateful for 12 step fellowships. I have been feeling very sentimental lately, which is a good thing: I am not isolating anymore, and am, in fact, reaching out to old friends who I love who I have lost track of for so very long. That feels good.

There are piles of items all over the living room this morning which I am in mid-sort for. I would like to find a place to keep those things which are to be help onto and deal with them. I think I will support myself with flylady this morning and also the chatbox. 

I startedc talking about procrastinatorsanonymous in other 12 step meetings during my shares and it is helping me. Other people seem to relate to these behaviors in those meetings which feels very good.

Thank you, Constance, for my new quote.
