Hello everyone!

Well I really have a goofy way of doing things.  I haven't done any christmas shopping yet. A ton of reports are overdue, and my main company is witholding my paycheck until all reports are received.  Well, I better get myself going.  Somehow, though, I had the nerve to go to the store and buy a ton of baking supplies (not an easy task on the eve of a major snow storm)-and of course all I can think of is baking cookies instead of doing reports.  I often wonder if I would procrastinate if I had a different job, one that I loved that did not have so many reports.  Then I often answer my self yes I would.  Ah well...

1.  report- J.P.

2.  report-M.L.

3. report J.E.- not possible until info is sent

4. report N.K.

 On the plus side: Got an early start this am and managed to get some things organized. Then got to have a weekly breakfast I've skipped the last few weeks.

On the down side: since I've been home (nearly 2 hours ago) I've done little but dither, and didn't check in here right away.

I've got specific tasks to work on and I have been putting them off. Now it's time to start.

1) Outline Project T-L

Good day to all,

I am having a hard time focusing and my energy is all but nonexistent.  I don't have much that I must do today, but it feels like I am having a possible relapse so I think I will meditate and check back in.

kromer 10:10 CI

OK, work is winding down before the holidays. But I'm ready for it to be over, not just wound down...

Here's what I need to do today (a pretty limited list, a mix of work-work and xmas preparation):
*Take care of cells (freeze, split, set for transfection)
*Do QC, GO/Kegg analysis and manual inspection of lists of genes, make small presentation
*Germ cell mtg
*order gift
*buy xmas cards/wrapping paper
*do dishes, buy fudge ingredients, make fudge

*Talk to TE and JM
*Youth group + holiday party

OK, most important thing now is to get ready for germ cell mtg, by doing QC etc. I'll get the GO/Kegg analysis going, then I'll do QC.

S_ck, pardon my French.

However, they still must be done. So - that's my plan until check-in at 11:30. Cite, cite, and cite some more. Trying to do first 4 pages by then.

Now, if only I could FIND the sources I've referred to in my report! (Ugh! WHY didn't I bookmark that?)


Thanks - MC 

Journey 9:15 at least it's not snowing

Ah, another day of cold rain here.  The commute in to work was unpleasant, but I was here on time (barely).   I exercised at home this morning, and I've checked email and calendar.  Now I would like to put my head down on my desk and have a short nappie.   I mean, now I'd like to go get a cup of coffee and woe be unto anyone who took the last cup without making a fresh pot. 

I've got one quick task that arrived in email, then I'll make todolist and schedule and come back here.
