Sammy ci :: end of semester

Hi everyone,

Just wanted to let you all know that even though I have not been checking in every day, I DO come to the site every day. Thats better than nothing, right?

I've been having a tough time lately....almost failing a class I love, family conflict, considering switching majors....lots of stuff that just sucks the energy out of me.

I'm hoping to get back into my check in schedule after the semester ends....

Today I am thankful for my friends C. and E.. Last night I was really inspired by the godliness they displayed in a tough situation. 

Chicking In

I have been doing things.

I hate to shop and forced myself to check on the vertical blinds. Something I put off and at the time, I almost backed out for a "better time", but I made it. I am more aware of all th procratination thoughts going through my head now. It was not easy or comfortable, but somehow I insist on believing "next time will be different" (sound familiar?)

Today, got in my walk, soccer, food stores, wash. Breaks.

Now. 1. phone calls and start yard work. It is beautiful  out yet, I feel tired and don't want to start. I know once I start, I will enjoy it.

Thanks. from a fellow pro.

CI 12:26 PM

Yesterday and last night went well and I had a good time. 

Today I am trying to do several projects at once, and not any of them very well. 

Going to grab a nap, as that will make a difference - Friday night/Saturday morning is my main chatting time of the week - and start again. 





Gentlemen, I believe we have much to discuss.

 Hi, in case anyone was wondering I'm new here. I'm really looking forward to geting to know everyone and supporting each other. Snyways, this is my 1st check-in!!! Its weird, cuz I haven't tried writing lists to get stuff done in so long, but it'll 4 sure work better than my usual method (which means no mehtod!)

morning routine

text friend about tutoring

read book for English

walk around block- didn't get to that

volunteer for 4 hours at Library

study for Chem exam at Library didn't cover as much as i wanted to

So I'll be back to tell how it 4:45ish. Wish me luck! ANd good morning everyyone!!!!!

Edit: So 3 hours later than I was supposed to come back and edit...I finally do. In my defense, my intentions were good. I was actually reading the book were reading for English during my "fun" break, took a little longer than I expected. And that lead to other stuff...and now I'm a little stressed at what I still gotta do. Okay, here's my schedule for the rest of the night:

spend a couple more minutes online

call friend from Spanish

start on laundry/volunteer sheet

study for chem test/sort through exam papers

write 1/2 of paper rd

Then I can relax for a bit before bedLaughing

Hello All!

I have to confess I don't know when I last checked in...Thursday maybe?  I had a good day yesterday, cleaned up the house while washed windows.  I have been successful in fighting my resistance...always aware of the voice that pops up and says "but" or "just a minute to do this"

My windows were really bad, so I wanted to wipe them down with just plain old water before doing the windex thing.  I decided to use the water and newspaper trick, to see if that really did work, knowing I was going to windex after....and was amazed that it works!  I am looking out sparkling clear windows as I write, just so pleased at the result, and the money I saved in both windex and paper towels! 

Today we are going out to the Wildlife Park near here.  The weather is beautiful today, we should have a good time.  Haven't decided yet if we will picnic, or restaurant.  A little bit of C-Tire shopping and browsing, and then back home to meet the kids Nanny for a visit.  I would like to clean off my workrooms bed surface of the the stuff piled on it, and repot my aloe, putting the bigger plants into a bigger planter. I haven;t seperated aloes from eachother before I hope it goes well!


Have a greating day everyone!

journey 7 am

good morning!   I am working today, so I'm checking in to say that I am getting on the treadmill right NOW and then going out to the nursing home to check on Dad.  He was moved from rehab to the "memory care" unit yesterday . . . this is good news because a month ago they were talking about moving him from rehab to hospice.  

I have to do some stuff for work starting at 11 but it is my intention to be online to work at 9 am, review everything for today and get some work done on Project TF for which I have a deliverable due on  Friday. 

Have a great weekend y'all!

Chick CI & intentions

I want to make progress on two main tasks today--but it never works to aim at big things.

So my intention here is to get started on each, and keep starting again and again and keep going to make progress.

1. project l

2. the manure came, I have spread 4 out of 20 bags. It's 4 old manure, not at all stinky and it makes a nice break to work on it. But I have to dig out weeds in each area I spread it.

3. household stuff: because I am binging, I do not want to go out for more fruit and veg. I have enough in the house, more or less.

affirmation: I can choose to focus my attention. I can choose a positive attitude. I can ask HP for help.

Happy Birthday wishes to

Happy Birthday wishes to bGG's daughter for a very happy 4th!

Thanks so much for the birthday wishes chickadee, journey and everyone!! It will be a very special and joyful day - a lot to do with the peace I have more of since my progress here! God has really used this site and the fellowship here to do a great work in me - not where I want to be yet, but so far from where I was and enjoying the journey!

Chickadee I wish i had that cake it is so cute, really adorable! :-) thanks for picking it out for us!!  I may have to steal the idea for next year!

 Her real cake will be a girly version of a train cake. She likes Thomas the train and red and yellow so wanted Molly the train - so thats what she gets! It's a girl train - and I have lots of sparkly butterfly accents to decorate with too - this is the first bday she has been able to express what she really likes and wants on the cake, she has been so excited - me too!
