Hi All,

Missed you this week.

Just went to a really bad meeting for me...someone wouldn't stop wanting to private me...(not in this fellowship). That's never happened to me before.

Was so behind at work, couldn't even check my emails. I realized something, I am never going to get "current" at work, so I can stop's not a bad thing but a relief.

I've managed to hold off "giving notice" and my hopes & prayers is that I'll be able to leave by the beginning of April. Another worker will be back from maternity leave then, and she is smart, good at what she does and nice, and unassigned, so I think that would be a great fit!!

Also relate lots to Falcon, housecleaner is so behind. I'm so consumed by my website, I feel like I'm just going to leave all my cleaning behind. It is depressing living in a messy/dirty place..feel like it's another way to hurt myself.

The main thing with my website is to get the domain name to show up on my new site...I hope the company (poopies) will be open today and I can call them. Once I get my domanin name to match I can start advertising, etc. I feel like it will be impossible to fix...kind of like I feel in my life everywhere.

Sorry, so long...for now:
-see if I can call
-do one part of p.t. exercise
-clean kitchen (HA, HA)

Love you all!!

♥"Together we could do, what we could not do alone.♥

Welcome back - missed you

Welcome back - missed you too!

Sorry you're having such a bad time at the moment. I think we can ALL relate to that 'it's all impossible' feeling! You *can* influence your situation, that's why we're all here *hugs*

Thanks Lucky!! ((HUGS))

kromer 8:40 CI

I got up on time today (trying to get back in the habit of getting up as soon as my alarm goes off...I had now problem when I had roommates, but now I can press the snooze button as much as I want :rolleyes:)

So I got up at 7, and spent the last hour and a half eating breakfast, reading, and relaxing. That's fine (part of the way I convinced myself to start getting up on time was by promising myself I could take time to relax in the morning, particularly on weekends :) )

Now I have a little more than an hour before I need to leave for church (and a lot of time after church). Here's what I want to get done today:
*Start IHC (will do this now)
*Finish up teaching prep (have made some good progress on this)
*Go shopping

*Fix javascript validation

*Call a friend
*Email ID and SM, clean out inbox

OK, going to work on javascript validation for a little while now.

Falcon Sunday CI

Hi amigos,

I'm checking in on Saturday evening to make a commitment for tomorrow (Sun.)    I'd really like to get to my class tomorrow, and I have some errands I'd like to run.  But I've been putting off too much stuff, and it needs to get done.

So, I'm committing to staying home tomorrow to do the things I need to do.  I'm being a little tough on myself - I feel a bit like a kid being "grounded" for not doing my chores - but I've been doing way too much dragging my feet lately.  My place is a mess and I'm going to feel a lot better if I clean up and get some other tasks done.

Stuff I need to do:


  • Vacuum all the floors
  • Thoroughly mop/clean kitchen floor
  • Tidy
  • Clean bathroom
  • Clean kitchen counters/etc.
  • Dust
  • Do the assignment I brought home from work
  • Bake & divvy up pasta for lunches 
  • Look at bills
  • Get information for date on Mon.
  • Exercise 


I have a feeling there are some other chores that need doing that are slipping my mind. . . I'm sure they'll occur to me!

It's really important I keep myself on track and take care of myself so that I don't slide into winter depression.

If I get started early and get some significant cleaning done before 10:30, I might reconsider going to class, but I'd have to have a lot done by then, so probably not.  



Falcon CO Sun.

Well, I didn't accomplish as much as I thought I would today.  The cleaning took a lot longer than I expected.  But at least I got some important cleaning done, plus a couple of other needed chores.  I was sorry that it took pulling the plug on any other activities to get myself to do it.  

I did realize something. . . I often feel, even when there's a long weekend, that I could have used one more day to get things done.  But I didn't really need another day - I needed more focus yesterday!  There were several hours when I was puttering around doing unnecessary things, and not making use of pockets of time to get things done.  I wasn't feeling particularly stressed or depressed, so I just didn't notice the procrastination the way I would have if I'd been feeling down.

If I'd used that time to get a start (not just yesterday, but in the preceding weeks) today wouldn't have been so hard.  I'll try & remember that next time I have a weekend that feels too short - maybe I have more time than I think I do.


Falcon CI Sun. afternoon

I am really hating doing housework today.  It seems like it's taking FOREVER. . . and it IS taking a long time because the place is in such bad shape due to my foot-dragging on cleaning it the past few weeks.

Right now I just want to get out of here and go do something else.  But I know I will feel much better having the place clean -- and I know if I put it off any more I'll feel like @#$%.   

So, I'll just have to accept being "grounded" today, and hopefully accept the lesson that procrastination has consequences and that if I don't like them then I need to change my habits to take better care of myself and my space on a day-to-day basis.

Learning experiences suck rocks.  Tongue out 


Falcon CI Sun. a.m.

Good morning!  I'm going to redo my list so that I can clean and check off one room at a time. . . I think that will make it easier to see progress:


  • Go to bank - DONE
  • Clean back room - DONE
  • Clean bathroom
  • Clean kitchen floor  - DONE!  (Finally!)
  • Clean kitchen counters, etc.
  • Clean island/dining room - DONE
  • Clean living room
  • Clean bedroom - DONE
  • Answer emails - DONE
  • Do the assignment I brought home from work - realized I can do this Tuesday.
  • Bake & divvy up pasta for lunches - DONE
  • Look at bills
  • Get information for date on Mon. - DONE
  • Exercise - Can skip this today (got lots of exercise yesterday and am doing active stuff around the house.)
  • Maybe do a load of laundry - DONE

A couple of rules for today:  Until these chores are done, no web surfing except to answer emails (and check in here, of course!) no reading and no crossword puzzles.  If I want to read a little while eating breakfast or lunch I need to set a timer so that I don't get sucked into it.

Heading over to chatroom. . . hope to see you all there! 



Well done for making the

Well done for making the commitment! That list looks doable and I'll be sure to cheer you on if I see you in chat :)
