Edge's CI - 11:17pm

Today was a day spent entirely in procrastination. Aside from reading manga and looking for ways to waste my time, I did little else. I think the right words for it would be "willful procrastination". Me rebelling against myself. ...Ah well. Will see how tomorrow goes.

hi Edge

Hi Edge!

I didn't know you were into manga! I collect nippon Misaki.

Good luck with everything! :)



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

hey Edge :)

Hi Edge!

Hugs to you, too :)

Yes, the Japanese stuff is fun :) I like anything that is kawaii :)

With the nippon Misaki, I have about 28 of them. I also like Pullip, but have only 1 of them. I like harajuku; sometimes Miskai can be a 3D version of that style.

What kind of manga do you like? :)



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

Praying you will have a better day tomorrow!

Vic 9/5 Hoping to find hope in chaos.

Showing up, paid $600 for small scrape near front fender, clean rental property a bit, ck, hm, (done)

Feling extreme negativey about self. Watched Patch Adams for first time yesterday, I felt like him, even though I am intelligent, everything I do seems to be stupid and wierd. His sign was a butterfly at the end of the movie. My sign is the step workbook.that Jo shared, I have been trying to fi nd a way to do updated 4th step and here it is.Al Kohallek Goes On A Serendipity Journey -

I am up to step 4 now, have not picked up any addictions, have not shut down, and am on my knees. Don't know if I am making sense,but I do know that is where I need to be. I have prayed, God,anything but don't let me pick  up, get fat or have finalncial problems. Well here I am, the workbook says:

Doing what’s suggested in these Workbooks and/or Workshop Papers may cause you to let go of some parts of your personal “reality.” You may stop being a user and become an owner of your own stuff. You may find yourself giving up some of your old resentments, pains and fears. You could even find yourself with a new understanding and/or awakening. Maybe you will find your Self

Been AWOL for a few weeks. Trying to get back in to the working routine after having the summer off. Thankful for the long holiday. I really have to make my time count and at this point I am not doing a very good job at it.

I am just getting started after taking son to fall ball practice, lining up play date for children and hitting a couple of yardsales. Now it is time to get focused on my house for awhile. (I have lots to do)

  1. Prepare ribs and chicken to cook on grill later
  2. Move kittens outside for some play time 
  3. AM routine -- I have not completely completed the routine since I have started back to work. Shoud readjust but not sure how I would like to.
  4. 1 basket of clothes
  5. Apples
  6. 1 basket of clothes
  7. Van
  8. 1 basket of clothes
  9. Cook supper

Recycler CI 11:15am EST

Hi Pro Buddies!

This morning I went on my bicycle ride. After that I bought provisions, put gas in my car, and went to the library. Arriving at home, I put away the refrigerated groceries, then took some time for meditation. I've just eaten lunch, & filled up a bag of trash to go to the dumpster.

I have just over an hour before going out to interview someone. I'm going to try to do a couple of things around here, and change clothes so I can do some errands after the interview. I hope to update my CI later.

5:25pm. I went to give the interview. The person organizing the interview didn't show up. ((sigh)). I got an email from them later. While it wasn't a big deal, I had organized my day around it. ((sigh))

While I was out, I did several errands, with better-than-expected results. For the reason prompting these errands, I still have a ways-to-go with it. However, I am trying to cooperate with HP re turning lemons into lemonade. Thank you, HP.

Back at home, I rested; which was partly needed & partly low-functioning. It's still a priority for me to be Good to myself this day/week/month. I got up & have put something in the oven to cook. Next: puttering around is a good goal for this evening. I might update my CI later; I'm not sure.

7:50pm. I cooked 2 things this afternoon/evening. One has been put in a storage container in the refrigerator, and one I still need to box up during the next 30 minutes. I need to keep puttering about.

9:05pm. I put the cooked item(s) into the fridge. I ran the dishwasher. I did 2 budgeting projects that I like, so that made me really happy :) Next: I need to do a meditation exercise before getting ready to sleep.

Have a great day, everyone! :)



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

Checking in from the blackberry today. I'm trying an experiment and going to try not to even boot up the pc today, since that is where most of my temptations are!

Good morning, all!

Today I've got lots to do (I feel like there are not enough hours in the day to do what I want!)

OK, MITs are to pay bills/do budgeting, to return library books and to get final CAC proposals in for HU and BrdU (waiting for responses to a couple emails, but this task is basically done :) )

Other tasks are to do estimated taxes, finish G's project, and do a general literature search

Working on bills/budgeting now (in the chatbox)
