Lark @12:24am

Hi everyone. While there are loads of things to do, nothing is extremely pressing, due to clients' cancelations, suspending work, or non paying. I'd rather not heat the shop for nothing, when I can combine two or three days' work into one later. I always thought it would be relaxing to not have a catastrophe looming but it feels kind of weird. Nevertheless...
To do:
(X)morning things
spiritual time
(X)move vehicle
(X)make phone calls
cut and varnish wood mouldings for bathroom
planning for the remainder of week

Nice to see you Lark!!

I am getting through my day.  First meeting was shakey but got through it.  I actually had to go out for a drive afterwards and cancelled an appointment before the next meeting at 11.  I will hopefully be a little better prepared for that one.

OK, I got through some more of my overwhelming reports and think I can do a few more today in between appoint. and meetings.  I have meetings until 9. blahhh...  I admire people who can keep this pace and still have a life.  I just don't know how to do it.  I have one more report to finish to get my paycheck and then 2 for meetings tomorrow. 

Way to go P.E., You can do it - one letter at at time!!

Journey 10 am &

Thanks for the thread starter Inkling. I needed it because I feel kinda yucky this morning and I *really* considered calling my boss and telling him I needed to work from home today.  But I did not!  I got up, exercised lightly, ate some breakfast, and got myself to the office.   

So here I am, feeilng kinda subpar but not awful.   I got here just in time for a 9 am meeting, so now I'm going for a cup of tea.  I'll probably check in fairly frequently today and try to get out of here early for a change!

So here goes:  tea, todolist, definitely need to set MITs today and focus on those things only and then call it a day. 

UPDATE 11:30 have another meeting now which I hope will be very short.  I finished the first task on my list which was an easy one.   After the meeting, I will prepare for my 3:00 meeting, then work on Project T for 1 hour and Project V for 1 hour.   After the 3:00 I'm outta here, if I still feel like moldy ass. 

UPDATE oh geez I forgot about the 1:00 meeting I had so that throws my schedule off a bit, but oh well.  I still feel kinda crappy so I just sent an email saying I'm leaving at 4:00.  The meeting was about Project T, and I had planned on working on Project T for an hour so I'll give it 15 more minutes and then work on PRoject V for an hour.  I can spend a bit more time on Project T tomorrow. I've moped around and whined enough today so that I could conceivably call in a work-from-home day tomorrow and it won't be unexpected.  ::sick::

Had a conflict with the BIC about Project V - that didn't sound right, let me try again.  She needed the system for a while this afternoon and she's off tomorrow, so I postponed the Project V work and did some more work on Project T.  My meeting is in 5 minutes and then I'm so outta here!

Hi Friends,

I finally realized why I'm fearful to advertise, go to pet stores or vets to put up my flyers (i.e., start my business) because I am ashamed at myself - all the bridges I have burned, doors that are shut, people that are angry and don't like me. It's hard for me to think of any working relationships for references. How could this be me?

-find p.t. place
-waiting for fed ex person to come with meds
-if fed ex person comes early enough go on waitressing interview
-take girl to the park & read
-locate pet related places in my area
-meeting at 9:00PM
-dust & clean rest of house
-need to decide if I am giving charity...I feel I should but I'm too scared to part with the $, given circumstances...but I think this is what HP would want me to do???AAAAAHHHH...
-contact 401k person and find out how to cash out - UGH

Grateful that I'm not obsessing or in fear at the moment about finances.

Take good care.

Hi All & Every,

Thanks Rexroth, I'm borrowing your "check out" term.

Had a good first interview at a restaurant that is pretty busy and would probably be good money. The person who really makes the decisions is back next week - UGH!! Trying to stay in the moment and not obesess about everything - not too successful I'm afraid.

To do:
-I was going to go to a meeting but I can barely keep my eyes open
-clean up kitchen
-make hubby dinner
-give girl meds
-brush teeth

Pleasant dreams, good morning & have a great day!!!

Today was a pretty good day.

I went jogging, which I'm proud of...I'd been really slacking off on exercise/eating right--but I managed to go 3 miles today, so apparently the slacking hadn't been too awful.

I either finished or made very good progress on all of my MITs, and also made some start on my other 2 tasks.

Now I'm going to spend about 15 min working on analyzing list of genes, then I'll go to bed.
