Convalaria in semi recovery Thursday 8.00 am :)

 I did not check in again yesterday. We are in the middle of a heat wave and I am begining to find that my enenrgy leve;ls are dropping. I did manage to do some shopping, cooked dinner and tidied the kitchen.

Today I have had cofee and breakfast Smileand have unfortunatelly spent about 90 minutes aimlessly surfing Cry.

Trying to do the next right thing.
Now I am going to:

  • medicate, dress and brush my teeth
  • take doggy to mothers house and pick up his treasures from the back yard
  • start watering the pot plants
  • leave by 9.20 for my volunteer activity
  • check in when I return by about 12.30

Spirit 11/11

This has been a working day and it feels like I am getting things done but I know it is time to plan my next project now that it appears 3 will be complete soon.  Each stacks on the other so I have to remember to make a new plan each time a goal is completed.

Journey 1:30 pm

Good afternoon!  Today is a holiday for me but I'm about to do a bit of work anyway as I have a lot to finish up before the end of the year.

This morning, I walked on the treadmill, got my car to the shop (bad battery cable caused the problem Monday)  took DD around and "encouraged" her to apply for jobs, visited mom, had a nice lunch out and stopped by the grocery store.  Whew!  

This afternoon I"m going to do laundry and catch up on a bit of work until they call and say my car is ready.

CL daily overcoming

started early, but tried to squeeze in an extra task, and it took longer than i expected, and didnt really work, and now i probably have to spend more time undoing it.

so that makes me sad.

but i will recover here using the usual tools, and trusting HP to make it happen.

Agnus checking in

G'morning group!  Today I have had my quiet time, sponsor call, pet care, breakfast, 2 outreach calls, cable repairman visit (J handled most of this one), did some backlogged emails, and made efforts to "look as well as I can, dress becomingly ..." (from the Just for Today poem that OA and Alnon use).  Working at home it is easy to fall into slobbiness, which can feel like depression. I need to resist that spiral!

Today my work calls for focuses on Project EM: thoroughly understand the need, draft a process outline, submit to colleagues.  If there is any time remaining I will look at a Prospecting op. Lunch at 12:30 (I've been procrastinating eating again, a bad deal for one of my other addictions). During/after lunch I will review the plans my HP and I made today, and check back in here.   Hope everyone has a "procr-abstinent" day!

kromer 9:45 CI

OK, I have a busy day, with lots of scheduled stuff, one big task and lots of little tasks I'd like to get done.

So far today I've had phone CI, prayed, changed mouse food, picked up trash outside my apt. 

Scheduled are class 10-1, mtg 1-2:30, coffee w/ labmates 4-4:30, dancing 8:30-10

Big MIT is to work on comparative project.

I'd like to
a)Find refs for species I haven't looked up yet,read as many of these as possible and take notes (have made some progress on this)
b)Review and clean up primate data (have made some progress on this)
c)nice plot of stage lengths

Other relatively important tasks are to:
1)Prep RNA
2)Figure out Stra8 strategy
3)Harambee prep
4)Get new bike headlight

Other lower-priority tasks are:
I)Start looking into teaching microscope
II)Work on stats HW (have done a little of this)
III)Read papers

Today, I'm going to time log, use the chatbox and check in frequently, and try to avoid surfing.

Right now, going to class, and then to mtg. After mtg, I'll start RNA prep, then work on finding refs.

The way to succeed is to double your error rate.

Thomas J. Watson

love the Watson quote

That's my motivation du jour: I'm off to double my error rate!  (hope my boss agrees with this tactic ;-))


This quote makes more sense than I thought, if I am not so afraid of making a mistake.
