kromer 12:50 CI

Today I finished my last class ever (as a student, I'm TAing next semester). Woohoo!

Now I want to crash, but I actually have a fair amount that needs to be done:
*Seminar 4-5 (missed this, gah)
*organize papers (working on this now)
*order primers
*email about harambee and deacons
*call/email parents for cookie recipe
*work on xmas list
*take care of cells
*take care of mice

OK, that's plenty of work for the day! I'm going to microburst primer order now, then I'll go to germ cell mtg, then I'll take care of cells and finish primer order. 

YAY kromer!


Gratz to Kromer!!

Great starter Agnus!!

Some time yesterday afternoon, I crashed and fell into a depression. Didn't take my Yoffee for a long walk, didn't do her nails, stopped putting her first, etc. It was all I could take to drag myself into work, feeling today was going to be hard, and it is.

I don't want to be anywhere. I'm trying not to take the bad things in, but I'm not doing well on that front either.

I have to:
get rid of everything boss left for me
do 5k
remind LS weekly
GEM advance
make up more packets for meeting
payroll wire transfer
2 deadline materials must do today

Show up (done)

Journey 9:45 & check out

Happy Wednesday.  Working from home again today.   Yesterday wasn't so great, I got work done in the afternoon but pretty much wasted the morning.   I tried to work but continually got distracted.   The weather was really oppressive yesterday too which didn't help.  Today, the weather is beautiful and the fog in my head seems to have cleared also.  I'm looking forward to a better day today.   It does help that I can look back to two years ago when I joined this fellowship and see that yesterday's bad day is still an improvement over some of the horrid days I had then! 

I have exercised, made a quick trip to the grocery store, checked email and calendar.   Now for the todo list.   I have two phone calls to make today that I DO NOT want to make so I'll get them out of the way this morning.   Otherwise I could spend the whole day just avoiding making those 2 5-min phone calls.

Have a productive and enjoyable day everyone.  Think about how you can work on your goals and ENJOY THE PROCESS.

6:00 pm Well I NEVER DID make those phone calls.  I don't know why I hate making phone calls so much.  I did not complete my todo list today (partly because of those phone calls) but I got a lot of work done on my project, so it was a better day than yesterday.  Now for dinner, dishes, and laundry.

Spirit 12/16

Good morning all,

Taking matters into our own hands today it looks like.  I have piles of paperwork that the little machine gun that cat is using wouldn't touch.  I will need a missil, well maybe I am exaggerating a little, but it feels like it.

Decided I would have a professional come in and help with the organizing and filing of my office paperwork.  There really are people who enjoy doing that stuff if you can believe it, which leaves a clear space in my mind to work on my tasks for today:

  • marketing-contact all leads today
  • 2 hrs set aside for that
  • update database where possible
  • send gifts
  • organize xmas card mailing
  • get project m moving again and report outcome
  • catch up on numbers
  • review bus act plan for updates and completion timelines



Agnus check-in

Well, I suppose the day-starter has made it perfectly clear how I'm feeling today! :D

  • insurance decision to hq DONE! 8)
  • leftover tasks from yesterday
    • Project AH research DONE! 8) at least enough for today: good progress!
    • Project EM reading
    • Project AP finals incl webinar
  • enter debits sorted yesterday DONE! 8)
  • orthodonist 9:30am DONE! 8)
  • key factors started
  • annul - 1 item
  • OA minutes
  • meeting - maybe 1 pm phone, or look for a good Alanon meeting tonight
  • Spend 30 minutes on the medical paperwork pile (find out what bill has been turned over to collections and get it paid :rolleyes:)

Success isn't being all caught up. It's not procrastinating TODAY.

Agnus thinking ahead

Reminding myself before I forget it all in dreamland tonight...Thursday I need to start off with the key factors worksheet, then call 3F re contract, ok webinar, upload software, prep for team call 12n, Project EM reading, timecard and expenses, annul1, OA minutes, and 30 mins on the meds pile.
