Recycler CI 4:05pm EST

Hi Pro Buddies!

When I am home, I am going to have to limit my computer time to an hour each evening, or something like that. Having Internet in-house is super-tempting ;)

This morning: I did my routine at the gym with MIT stretches. Friday I hope to get there a little earlier for extra stretches.

Work: while my project list still looks long [to me], I have been marking things off. I'm trying to accomplish things to have the list strategically better for next week.

Tonight: I have Executive Committee planning meeting for one of my volunteer groups. When I'm in the condo before that, I will try to do some chores -- updating my CI will be helpful re chores -- however I will have to be careful not to get drawn into extended web-surfing like last night.

Personally, there is something on my mind -- doing some chores tonight will also help me dissipate some energy. Tomorrow I will see the person who needs to talk to me. Serenity prayer: God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.

9:15pm. Back from mtg. Other things I did tonight: I washed a load of clothes & hung them up to dry. I wrote an email to my international friend. Next: take meds & brush teeth. See if I can find phone list to call friend. Go to sleep.

Have a great night, everyone! :)



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

Sammy ci :: 1:50 pm

Hello all,

I had to really push myself to come here and post today.

I have Economics class from 3-6, then Psychology from 6:30-9:30. Last night I copied 9 chapters of Econ vocabulary in hopes that it will help me with the test we'll be taking today. It also counts as extra credit if you turn in hand-written vocabulary and definitions. I missed both Econ and Psych last week because I had a bad migraine....I am really regretting that, because now I feel really behind, like I'm starting to slip again.

Tomorrow morning I have my frist meeting with my client for my Ad Design class. Tonight I need to come up with a list of questions to go over, and find a nice outfit, as well as finishing up some other homework for that class.

 I think I have a long night ahead of me...

For now, I'm struggling to get motivated to blow dry my hair. I absolutely despise the whole process, and have to battle myself to do it every time I take a shower. I could just let it air dry, but then it won't look as nice for my client meeting in the morning. *Sigh* seems like it should be such an easy thing to do! 

Sammy ci :: 6:30 pm

Found out tonight that the hours and hours of copying vocabulary was only worth 9 extra credit points. Oh well, I'm glad to have the notes now, and I might end up needing 9 extra points someday, anyways.

Just waiting for Psychology to begin. Hope everyone had a good Thursday! 

Sammy ci :: 2:20 pm

Just wanted to report that I now have dry hair. Next step: Eat lunch, and get out the door for school by 2:35.

rec ci - 12:04pm - Good news

I have some progress to report: I am ready to file my back tax returns that I had procrastinated on for years. That is good news I need to celebrate (and not just berate myself for taking so long) - they are now done!

On to today's "to do" list:

Review B file; drafting
Call or e-mail TW re drafts
Call DP re meeting
E-mail MK
Pick up d at school

I cannot get into chatbox (just says it is loading but then it never opens...), so I'll keep checking in here today.


chatbox loading

sometimes I have trouble getting into chatbox from work . . .I think it times out because our bandwidth is restricted.  logging out and back in sometimes helps.

Don't you feel so much better now?

Yes, Sammy, thanks!

I do feel much better now that taxes are finally done!

Thanks for the encouragement!


Ag ci 10:50am

Already done:

  • Calls to sponsor, Mom, sponsee, pest control and M/WI
  • Step 11
  • EP FB corresp

Just learned that a major event this afternoon must be postponed, which will require major correspondence on my part to cancel and resked. So that's first MIT before I can even sort the rest of my day.  Back after that's done.

Ag 11:07am, 12:55pm

Changed my mind. I'm not cancelling the conf call. There will still be three key people who can make progress. Plus after this call, I can delegate the rest of it to someone else! :-)  Now on to the rest of the day:

  • SmileCall M/WI again
  • SmileFollowup toolkit revisions and ID how to post/where
  • NEW: Email it to KeT when final, folo w/phone, sked2chk
  • Smile Call the new Center guy
  • SmileDraft email for RR re me as new proj/dir
  • Request travel bookings
  • Email Indy the former contacts
  • Dir dep forms
  • Calls to NJ, NY, MI, FL, ME, GR, MM; GA?
  • Update wf3 reg
  • subscr wkfusa
  • think through IT needs and order tech support

Journey 9 am

Good morning!  Actually I'm not having a really good morning but I'm hoping it will get better.  I awoke with a splitting headache, but didn't take anything because headaches often go away if I go to the gym.  It's still here so I'm about to take some advil.   I've been having a lot of headaches lately, don't know what's up with that.  Probably need to start taking my claritin on a daily basis for a while as things are beginning to bloom down here in the heart of the deep south.  I've also been eating some bad stuff like chocolate, fried food, and chips.  I know I feel better if I leave off that stuff, but it tastes really good sometimes!

So, I've been to the gym, commuted to the office, glanced through my email and calendar.  I'll make my todo list/schedule and see y'all in the chat box by 9:30.

Hope-Faith CI 8:20

Good morning,

Still trying to pull it together. My mind is not as foggy as it has been, but my momentum is still a bit sluggish. Setting task for the next hour.

  1. Plan A2
  2. Plan A1
  3. Request time off

Heading to chat now.


e struggles

I am up against myself these days and so I am back here today to turn it over and follow program. Self-will is not helping at all, so, since my higher power seems to reside in the chatbox I will visit there today.

for now: to do:
finish dishes, make up futon, take meds, drink water.
It is 7:43.

HP resides in the chatbox lol

I resisted the chatbox for a long time, because it provides a little too much accountability if you really want to goof off :)

kromer 8 CI

Right now I'm going to work on my morning tasks. Heading to chatbox now. Back when I leave for LHR training (9:30)

kromer 10:30 CI

Decided I would be better served by skipping LHR training and working on my MITs: I've emailed CL (will also talk to him after class), found all motifs, done most of the brainstorming about seq. analysis. Now headed to class, back after class to finish brainstorming and prep for mtg w/ EYL.

kromer 1 CI

Went to class, talked to CL (took a little long), took a lunch break. Now going to take 15 min to finish brainstorming and 40 min to prep for mtg w/ EYL, then I'll go to blood drive appt. 

Update 1:50--done w/ both the above tasks, going to head to blood drive appt, while I wait I can try and figure out where I stand on rotation choice, after appt. I'll go talk to EYL and then go to DP's lab to prep for mtg w/ DP, do 1st step of seq. analysis, and (if time) work on refining STRA8/DAZL model. 

kromer 4:20 CI

Went to blood drive appt and met w/ EYL, took a few notes from that (though I need to copy them down more carefully). I didn't get a chance to figure out where I stand on rotation choice. Now I have to quickly photocopy some notes, then go prep for mtg w/ DP, have mtg at 5:30, take notes from it + from mtg w/ EYL, figure out where I stand on rotation choice, then itt'll be about time for dinner. Back after mtg w/ DP.

kromer 6:10 CI

Have made good progress!

I photocopied notes+picked up book from library, prepped for mtg w/ DP, took notes from mtg w/ EYL, started figuring out where I stand on rotation choice, went to mtg.

Now I need to take notes from mtg w/ DP and finish figuring out where I stand on rotation choice. Back later this evening. 

Anal-retentive me
