Fixed the bugs, but after dinner I didn't do anything from the above list. I ended up watching 2 episodes of DS9 w/ my wife (after trying to get my daughter to get to sleep for at least an hour and a half). Time maybe for some reading before I go to bed.

fudoshin: checkin: 10:56am

Please do not leave advice.  Thank you.  Prayers welcome. 

                                                                                                              

Awoke at 10:50am today.  I am working on earlier and earlier.

I'm really uncomfortable with guys walking up to me that I don't know in karaoke bars walking up to me and hugging me, especially when there's loud music and I cannot say anything.

 

Prayers,fudoshin!!

Don't quit before the miracle!!

i am grateful that when i hear negative talk in my mind like "you're a bad christian" and "you'll never be close to god, you might as well give up" i now recognize that as exactly what the devil would want me to believe so that i do indeed give up, but that it is a lie, and it was never about me anyway, but what god could do in/thru/with me.

Trying to remain calm but feeling upset

FRIDAY 1/8/10I now realize how far behind I am, and in how many different areas. Trying not to get upset. And I have a few people in my life who are not happy w/ me due to my being behind. I just need to keep moving forward. I realized the best time for me to create my schedules is 24 hours in advance. The morning before would work best, so for instance on Friday morning create Saturday’s schedule. 

730- got up on time, start getting around, I have no idea why it took me until 915 to get ready for the day. I don’t know what happened to the time. It just seemed to take me forever in the bathroom915- bkfst930- create schedule for the day, finish getting around10- lv, store- return lg item on way to appt11- rinni, appt (write out morning schedule and review articles)1245-groceries, store pick up items2- ch245-email about flyers3- finish pics, make cd (p cat)bks

Imworthwhile

*hugs* Realising how far

*hugs* Realising how far behind you are is a painful step, but necessary.  You've just succeeded in taking an honest look at your situation and now you can start to deal with it. I usually find the 'argh, I'm THAT far behind' phase is followed pretty quickly by the 'wow, progress!' phase :)

re: remaining calm

It is what it is, feeling upset doesn't change anything!  Just keep starting . . .

Journey 9:15

Working from home today because we have icy roads down here in the SE US and we don't know how to drive on them!  I am supposed to attend a funeral at 1 pm also.

I'm feeling really depressed and down this morning, I went to bed early and slept late, don't have time to exercise this morning because I should be working already but I'm not working I'm just sitting here . . . *sigh* . . . but I am grateful that I don't have to deal with depression on a daily basis like so many people do.  When I feel depressed I could easily sleep 24 hours a day!

Anyway, I'm going to get up, get dressed, have something to eat and a giant vat of coffee and make an easy and doable todo list.  It's not too late to have a successful day. 

Yep, here I go.   I feel like just staying in my pj's until time to get dressed for the funeral but I'm sure once I get myself cleaned up and dressed things will seem better.  Yup. 

UPDATE 10:30  I am dressed, I went ahead and got dressed up all except for the jacket and I do feel better.   Still haven't done much work but I do feel better :rolleyes:.  It dawned on me that my friend was in the same room in the same funeral home as Daddy, no wonder I'm feeling depressed.   Sometimes I avoid acknowledging my feelings and  I think that contributes to procrast., eh?

Anyway, it's STILL not too late to have a successful day.  I'll finish up my todo list and get started. 

UPDATE NOON:  I have finished the first task on my todolist, yay!  Now I'm leaving for the funeral.  If the roads are bad I may be back very quickly.

UPDATE 3 PM:  Very long service.  There were bagpipes.  I'm going to change into blue jeans and get back to work. 

UPDATE 4:30 completed my admin tasks for the day.   Now I'm gonna go do a system configuration thing.

UPDATE 6 pm completed the configuration thing.   I'm calling it a day.  DH brought home pizza.   I really should do dishes in case the power goes out  . . .but anyway I made it through the work day and got at least some work done. 

JO

P.S.  Thanks for being here to listen!

Way to look at the grey

Sometimes I get stuck in an all-or-nothing, black-or-white perfectionism and it can be hard to get myself up and active when things aren't going ideally.  I commend you and am encouraged by the way you were able to see that it indeed wasn't too late to have a successful day.  Hope you don't mind my 2 cents-- from what I could see, the success wasn't only what you accomplished, but that you saw the possibility and gave yourself credit for the plenty of real *good* in the day.  You chose to participate in the day!  Well done!

Life 

*hugs* Mad props to you for

*hugs* Mad props to you for coping so well with such a difficult day!

kromer 7:45 CI

Actually got up at a reasonable hour today (7:30--I'd like 7, but this is OK) and am feeling pretty awake--yay!

I have a huge amount that I'd like to get done today...I know I can't get through it all, I'd just like to do the best I can.

High priority are:
*Work 1 hr on organizing computer files (will do this soon)
*Finish reading about mitotic and meiotic cohesins (Working on this now)
*Condolence note, wedding card
*Proofread existing documentation (working on this now--it's a little boring, so I'll go through half of it and then switch to something else)
*Talk to off-campus housing people
*Check on expts. 

Medium priority:
*Read about fixatives
*Thank yous
*Get 20 meiotic cohesins
*Update web form/javascript file, figure out how "probeid" command works
*30 min organizing papers in room

Lower priority:
*Organize WM folder

OK, right now I want to have a quick prayertime and then do shopping for YG. Then I'll head to lab and proofread the existing documentation.

Rexroth update

Thank you Lucky.

I rested and took it easy in the morning and felt fine. I've done the stuff on the list. I have also a small problem with my back and knee and fell over when my knee gave way. I feel fed up with it all. It is icy and I want to get out and do not want to fall over.

So now what?

Regards Rexroth

Oh no! Now what? Swear

Oh no! Now what? Swear loudly, I'd say :)

Seriously, very well done for finishing your to-do list on a day like this, and I hope both the various physical aiments and the weather improve soon!!

Starting my check-ins at bedtime...

Hi everyone,

 Checking in (for tomorrow), tonight because a lot of tomorrow has to do with getting to bed at a reasonable time the night before.

I'm really excited about this moment and accomplishing my two goals tomorrow: to read BP half chapter and read over a report. I'm excited because more and more I'm letting myself be open to faith, hope, success, community, support, connection, and receiving.  Even more than that, I'm *choosing* to be and encouraging myself to feel excited about these little steps in the journey, thereby creating my experience.  Consciously boosting up my morale-- it's like exercise for the spirit.  

Thanks for the community and have a great Friday everyone!!

 Life 

yay!

Got started on the two goals for the day during my breaks at work.  Heading home now and will start again at 7.  I'm pumped!  LOL!  :D

(And you're not wrong about getting to bed the night before... :D )
