I am so wiped out from

I am so wiped out from dancing and singing last night at karaoke.  I stayed until like 12am, which is longer than I normally stay.  I wished that there were a way for me to write my paper, read my scholarly papers and sing and dance at the karaoke club.

I need to come through on my promises.  I promised a teacher, I'd return his books today, but I'm still writing the paper.  

One of the things I identify in my life is that 1) I feel overwhelmed, and that leads to my being late, because I feel unprepared and (2) ...  [insert forty-five minutes of Internet-searching for a local bloke].  <----proof I belong in this program, I can't even stay on task with writing an update.  Good grief.  I need to change myself.  I've always felt that way.

CI 10:00 AM

Looked at the time and realized I have procrastinated away at least the last two hours online. Going out to dinner tonight, and have to go get my paycheck. Have the feeling that "i can't get anything done because I'll just get started and have to leave."

 Well, duh, can't leave until I get up and get busy, including getting dressed!  Will get some weird looks if I'm running around town in my nightgown and slippers Wink

I must get ready, make a phone call, send an email, go get my check, and so forth. 

 Have a good day!


Gentlemen, I believe we have much to discuss.

Lark's CI at 10:20am

Hi everyone. Yesterday was much more productive than expected, but "everything" can't get done today. Therefore I won't be frustrated if I come up short today--or say "to heck with it" and stop progress. There's a dilemma today with two equally important tasks (similar time, money, clients etc) which just can't both be finished today. Not enough hours.I could focus on one, and finish it, or work on both and finish tomorrow. Hmm. In the meantime... Have a really nice day folks.
To do:
(X)morning things
minor cleaning
project "A" ?
project "B" ?
return phone calls

Journey 9:15 Great thread starter!

Good morning!  I'm annoyed that I just got an "invitation" to a 3-hour training session.   I really don't have time for that.  I'll go to the first hour then blow off the rest maybe. 

I've been to the gym, visited Dad, and read email.  Now I'm going for coffee and I'll come back and make a todo list, then see you guys in the chatbox!
