Gwen D: CI 6:30 PM and 9:00 PM

Late in the day Sunday, but better late than never. I half don't believe I'll do ANYTHING, so I'm posting to try to set up some accountability. This is about taking care of myself and grounding. I don't HAVE to, but I WANT to have a neater environment. Some MIGHT spill into tomorrow, it might not all be done, but that would be okay.

 I'll set a timer...

Went to church this morning (which was really nice), worked on planning church picnic, had lunch and some exercise, now I have some work to get done.

Lots of small tasks for today:
*Call AG, home, GW
*PA mtg
*Email G w/ results
*Read 2 general-interest papers (have chosen papers)
*Summarize yesterday's lit. search results (have made good progress on this)
*Summarize FGF and nodal lit. search results
*Budgeting, bills
*Est taxes

*Shop and cook dinner (will do this next

OK, right now I'm going to take 30 min and email G w/ results, then I'll summarize yesterday's lit. search results, then it'll probably be about time for mtg. 

fudoshin: 13 days (10:47am)

Please do not leave advice.  Thank you.  Prayers welcome. 



I have thirteen days, successfully avoiding the following:

  • social networking sites, including facebook, twitter, youtube
  • dating sites
  • chatting sites: woome, chat with a stranger, etc.  I cannot be on a
    chatting site.  MMORPGs count as "chat sites".  IRC.  The only
    exception is 12 step-related chat.
  • chat programs
  • YouTube, Google videos, Crackle,
  •, and calling anyone's associated fan line

 In truth, I believe I only started avoiding ustream on Monday or Tuesday, since I didn't have it on the list before; but since I've had it on the list i've avoided it.  Stuff needs to get written down for me, apparently.

Still have a lot more to accomplish off of my list I am glad that there is tomorrow to work some more.

So I will complete a couple task and then call it a night.

This list looks rather fun to me, whatwithal picking crabs and blueberries.  I should get into my creative cooking side, sometimes-  best of luck to you.

Still showing up. Yesterday I did more than I could have imagined by "showing up" and not "shutting down". That was a miracle to be sure.Unexpected marriage issues to deal with they have taken very heavy toll on my emotions, energy.

Today 1. church, dishes, wash, loop share(done) sponsor, take care of me, keep checking in. Store, phone for son, food store, took out garbage, (done) walk and calls (done)

Edge's Random CI - 7:59pm

Feeling kinda spaced out today. Could be because the house is full.
Went to BC and asked about my certificate. Need to go again tomorrow to get the final stamp of approval. Also need to take Z and L to the games' shop again. Got a haircut yesterday. Been taking my pills on time, but not the hmed. Also went to cycling practice yesterday morning.

Recycler CI 8:35am EST

Hi Pro Buddies!

I'm back from my bike ride, have taken my high blood pressure medicine, and fixed and eaten breakfast. Next I'm going to surf the Internet a bit before getting ready for a mid-morning activity. I also need to make a shopping list so I can pick up some things on the way back from my activity.

8:05pm. I cooked some stuff today. I washed, dried, folded, & put away various clothes & laundry. Did kitchen swishies. I fixed my gym bags for this week. Talked to dad on phone. Next: write an email to friend, write short article for newsletter; hopefully go to sleep on time & get a good night's sleep!

Have a great day, everyone! :)



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