Vic 3/9

Show up (done)

Had jury duty today. Actuallt got there on time!!

One more paper for son's cyberschool- so happy, got letter that cut off date is March 13, if I would have waited any longer, it would have been too late and all the work I would have done would have to be repeated.

Next- tax information- tht is how I got here last year. It will be interesting to compare myself to myself last year.

Hope to walk. Thanks for being here.

hope4meandu check-in (11:00AM)

Hi Buds,

I'm happy to report that operation clean up my relationships and my house are going well yesterday and today.

I have 3 really hard amends, which I'm so not looking to, but I did a major one this a.m. Thankfully, after sending out a few, I received a nice call from one of them. YAY!! Why do I think, I'll now be perfect in the future and never have to make another amends again?

Had this horrid dream of my family hating me and my fighting back in a huge and horrible way (which was the way it was)- Guess I'm on the right track?

I did:
-cleaned hallway stairs
-Amends: R.E., P.I., R.Z., E.K., E.K.,

To do:
-contact E.H.
-contact Mutual
-bank account
-check circular for sales
-jeweler after work & food shopping
-go through paperwork near stairs (not willing)
-clean walls in stairwell


Have been putting off:
-will make a black & white flyer, print 10, and put it in 10 people's mailboxes tonight.

Also, praying for HP's help for my Yoffee's health, I will continue to pray on a daily basis, as I feel lost as to what to do next to get her well.

Kind regards!!

Babarino ci 3.9.10

working from same task list as yesterday.

Thank you all for being here.


Journey 10 am & update - bad day

Working from home today.  I went to the gym and ran an errand after the gym, had breakfast and . . . .then goofed off for an hour (facepalm).  But anyway, I did start to work about 9 and I'm listening to a really boring conference call right now.   

UPDATE 5:30 Well, today was pretty bad.   I had three long meetings and I didn't even try to multi-task during them or fit work in between them.   I feel tired today and I think I'm gonna call it a day and go make dinner . . . tomorrow's another day.

kromer 9:20 CI

So far up 7 am (a little late but better than I've been doing recently), healthy bfast, packed lunch+dinner + did dishes, prayer/bible time, in lab.

Today is a pretty scheduled day (lab mtg 10-11:30, class 1-2:30, OH 7-9), but I have time for work in between. If I have time, I'd like to go dancing for a little while after OH

First step is to make a schedule for the week. Then I'll know what I need to get done today and I can update by CI

Update 10

MITs are:
*Basic Gibbs test, ask about pts (working on this now)
*Proc samples for EA
*Analyze biosensor data, make slide
*Bug AvO

Other tasks are:

Heading to lab mtg now.

Helen's check-in

Again I have woken up tired so I have decided not to call Sunday my day off but rather today. I was in a workshop all day on Sunday which was great but intensive 

and tiring. Today I will 

1. Do at least as much washing up as I need to cook a great meal.

2. Take my DVD to the library to avoid the fine (maybe)

3. Sleep, read, watch DVD's, rest, maybe catch up on friends email.

4. Buy a cheap calendar and start to monitor my teeth cleaning routine so I don't cheat .Goal : 90 consecutive days through teeth cleaning at least once a day.

 You know as I write this I feel guilty like I am supposed tp battle procrastination every day. I am writing a permission slip to myself. I am allowed one day a week where I do not have to force myself to do anything I do not want to do. I am allowed this day regardless of how successful I have been in the following week in my battle against procrastination. I am allowed to feel good about my successes and also to feel good about my attempts even if they didn't reach my standards. Any step is a good step. Right?

 My average procrastination score this week is 3 stars (Adequate day, hit some goals, missed some, worked a decent amount) and I was ill for most of it and yet my default response to a day off from it is guilt.




Helen, WELL DONE. Allowing

Helen, WELL DONE. Allowing yourself rest is a huge weapon in the fight against procrastination. By doing this, you ARE fighting. :)

Rest is important

Rest is important

Sometimes I remember to list it


Good for you ((Helen)), sounds like recovery!!

And you gave me the idea and permission to schedule in downtime - thank you!!
