Hi Pro Buddies!
Project list is kind of slow-going today. Oh well, at least I've got a plan! ;)
Did my routine at the gym this morning. I've worked on projects today at work.
At home, can I clear one more moving box today? It's surprisingly harder than non-pro's would think!!! ((sigh)) Maybe I can do one box before going to my 12-step meeting tonight.
Oh, I did get to meet with my sponsor last night. I'm so glad they continue to recover from their surgery. They said they are ok, just get tired more easily.
Have a great night, everyone! :)
Thank you, gals & guys, for being here! :)

Have not posted for a few days and have not used time constructively.
I have a number of phone calls to make after 9am and have a few appointments between 2 and 5.
In the next 30 minutes I choose to:

Due to 4 meetings and picking up daughter and car, did not get as much done on my "to do" list as I would have liked. Will try again tomorrow, when I only have 2 meetings!
Have a good evening, all!
Agnus checking in 11:20am and out 11:52pm
Good morning, PA-Pals! Thanks for all the well-wishes and prayers for my folks. J and I returned home yesterday and I've been on pet care, home care and classwork....way behind on self-care and job-work. I needed coffee for the 75-minute commute home after class last night, ergo no sleep until 12:45am, then 6:20am wake-up call - urgh! With apologies to those too young to remember The Love Boat, here is "Da Plan! Da Plan!" - using nowdothis.com after noticing how it was helping a fellow PA member:
by 2 pm by 6:30
Good morning! Getting a late start due to putting car in shop this morning. I also have to run back up there at lunchtime and take them a part that DH ordered for me, but I forgot to take it with me this morning.
I've been to the gym, read email, and listened to a long voice mail from the low talker. He's really a nice guy I just wish he would speak up. When I'm talking to him I get louder and louder too, and I don't speak softly to begin with :)
I have one task left over from yesterday that I need to do asap while I have my coffee and yogurt. I've really gotten into the European habit of mixing cereal into my yogurt. It rocks.
OK, I'll do the first task, make my todo list. clean up and get dressed, then head to the chatbox.

Lots to do today, wanna get routines done, shower, and go into town before the snow starts! Kids have a snow day today, not that it is bad right now, but supposed to be bad from noon on - we will see if the school board reacted to quickly then. Though I suppose Murphy's Law would apply anyway

kromer 8:40 CI
OK, I've made good progress on my tasks for today.
I did 2 MITs (talked to Mark, finished analysis of clustering data) and started a 3rd task for DP's lab (notes on wet lab work).
I made progress on talking to my landlord: I wrote out a script for what I'd say to him, knocked on his door and talked to his wife, who said he'd stop by soon. Based on what his wife said, I'm expecting him to either 1)not stop by or 2)blow me off, so I've spent some time thinking about how I'd deal with those possibilities. I've done all I can on this MIT today, now I just need to wait.
I also made progress on getting renters insurance, but I didn't make the 3 phone calls for quotes that I needed to make. It's too late to make the phone calls now, but I'll look up the numbers tonight so I'll be ready to make the calls tomorrow morning. (I'll also look up number for making eye exam appt.)
Finally, I went to all my scheduled stuff--class, doctor, mtg.
Plan right now:
Edit and send out mtg plans
Gather phone #s for insurance/eye exam
4)Start algorithm on list of genes (mostly done, might still have a little debugging)
5)Finish notes on labwork.
Heading to the chatbox now to start on my list
kromer 1:15 CI
OK, I've made some progress on my tasks so far today.
My goal for the workday today is to finish DP lab tasks (finish analysis of clustering data, talk to Mark, notes on wet lab work if time), to do a little more work on renter's insurance, and to prepare for talking with my landlord (eek!). Then I can take care of Harambee prep and running algorithm when I get home from lab.
Right now, I'm going to spend 45 min working on analysis of cluster data, then I need to go to doctor's appt. Heading to chatbox now.
