Hi Guys

You're welcome, and thank you for being here too!







troymac's day

Managed to finish task 1 of 7. Hope to finish task 2, 3 and 4 before dinner.

Well done!

Well done!

Vic 1/3

Show up (done)

Don't "feel" like doing anything, like today is the "last day of the holiday" and tommorrow is business as usual.

I have made real lifestyle changes this past year, by showing up every day, I have had many meger productive days but since coming here and getting the consistency of showing up, have not had those "lost days"(esp. after some of the disasters), I have kept the kitchen clean, waking up every day to a clean sink and kitchen,I have kept downstairs reaosonably tidy, I have maintained my walking, I am more involved in CLA and service, and most important, I have stayed clear of the black hole of resentment (lots going on to suck me in), have one son in cyber school, have him situated and he is doing well,  and now ready to put other in, have worked on being reaosnably pleasant every day.

Wow, I need to remember all the positives.

This year my motto for 2010 is "Rolling With the Punches". Also, I believe I need to adjust my schedule and get on the computer in the evening instead of the morning.

If I could get consistent with that next baby step, I will inherently have a more productive day.

Thanks for being here and a Productive New Year to All.

Vic, that's fantastic, well

Vic, that's fantastic, well done!

It does feel good when you remember to list the positives, doesn't it? :)

gratz vic!

That's a lot of progress!

Journey 9:30 & update

Good morning!  I have to buy groceries today and it's freezing out there!   I live in the south and I really don't like cold weather, but it is what it is. 

I've been on vacation and sleeping late every day so my #1 goal today is to get to bed VERY EARLY so I can get up and make it to the gym in the morning.  If I stay busy today that will help me fall asleep early right? 

my brief todo list for today:

  • qt (done)
  • pa (done)
  • journaling (done!)
  • grocery list  (done!)
  • buy groceries
  • put away groceries
  • bathe the big stinky dog
  • clean bathroom after dog bath
  • nice bubble bath for myself
  • dinner
  • dishes
  • 1 load laundry
  • balance ckbook  (done!  and paid the rest of  bills for the 1st!)
  • prepare for work/gym tomorrow

UPDATE 11:30 Now, off to the grocery store.  well, I'll eat some brunch and then off to the GS.  If I'm on track I'll probably not check in when I get back, I'll just avoid the computer for the rest of the day.   If I'm having trouble staying on track I will check in.

Lots to do today!

Go to church
Go to target
Go to PA mtg
Harambee planning
Financial planning

If time, deal w/ emails, make a schedule for the week, and prepare packages for mailing.

Heading to church now. Right after that I'll go to target and then head home for PA mtg.  

kromer 4:15 CI

Done the 1st 3 things on the list

Now I'm feeling kind of adrift, so I think I'll adjust my plan a bit and make a schedule for the week...that usually makes me feel a little more together. Then I'll do some cleaning and the financial planning. 

kromer 11:10 CO

Had a pretty decent day.

I did the financial planning

Harambee event has been postponed by a few weeks, so I decided I could do planning later.

So I made a schedule for the week and dealt with a bunch of email. Also took some PLANNED breaks :)

See you all tomorrow!
