This, people, THIS is what it's all about. I feel like I should meditate on this picture every day for the rest of my life. :)


Doggie photo

Love the photo   jumping over what looks like a barbed wire fie\\\fence!   Tooo often I feel impaled and snagged - and it's all my own doing, my own characerr defects (steps 6 and 7  --  ),   thanks again.

Show up (done)

Love the pups, but trying to figure out why "it's all about this picture", feel  like I am  looking at a Rorschach test.

The pup on the upper right look like he is having fun?

The one on the lower left look like he is saying, go ahead guys, I'll catch you later.

Anyway, got a good cyber school day with my son. I am exausted, physically, mentally and emotionally. I start to feel sorry for myself and instead of looking at the accomplishment, get short tempered, So I need to take a shower and time out.

Someone posted, in their childhood, "doing was suffering" I am haunted daily by that line, I see that has been something I learned as welll and continue to practice not even knowing that is what I am doing. It is not the legacy I wish to pass on to my children or anyone for that matter- I need to stay upbeat. (I hope). "Doing "was an "adventure" at one time in my life, I hope Ican/we can  get that back. Thyanks for being here


In so far as i can put it

:) In so far as i can put it in words, it's all about the joy and energy and the way the dogs are not just jumping the fence but BOUNDING MILES over it. It's the attitude I'd like to have to life. I think that ties in with 'doing' as an adventure, actually.

strike check-in/out 8.14 pm

  • education & training (at new part time job) 9.30-5.20
  • spinning 6.30-7.30
Today was a busy but simple day. I'm have a new part time job and I had my education & training today. It will only be on comission (at least initially) but it's right up my alley and I would love to work there full time. At least it's one step away from my current job situation (which is my main cause of stress in my llfe) and one step towards something that gives me energy. The education & training will continue tomorrow. 

I was home for like ten minutes then I went and tried a spinning class at the local training facility. In a nut shell, that was my day. Now it's chill time! :D

ps. those dogs are rad. Great starter Lucky!

Emailed aobut flight

Heading home now, where I'm going to do either hand laundry or dishes, and then go to bed.


kromer 4:20 CI

I'm making good progress on the s8 expt planning, and think I'll be able to move forward on this. However, finishing up sth is always tricky, so I'm posting a breakdown:
1)Finish making expr graph for Expt 10
2)Consolidate all my primer info, chose best primers (1 hr)
3)Ask MG about RNA, TE about method, YH about primer, LO about supplies (15 min)
4)Clean bench + start RT on sample I have (1-2 hrs; if I have time/energy, I'll start RT on second sample this evening, after dancing)

OK, I'm going to the chatbox to chug through this list

Journey 9 am

Good morning!  Working from home today, only have one meeting.  I have a lot of work to do and I need to stay focused but I really wanna goof off!  I'll probably be checking in frequently today. 

Before my 10 am meeting, I want to have my todo list and schedule done.  I've checked email and calendar, I've been to the gym, unloaded the dishwasher and done some goofing off.   Time to get to work!

Journey 11:45

10:00 meeting is done, I did make my todo list and schedule but otherwise have not been real productive this morning.   I feel sluggish and stuffy; it's allergy season!  I have taken my allergy pill and some advil and I'm sure that will help.  I'm going to work on Project G for 45 minutes then I'll have lunch.

Agnus 5:45am

LOL Lucky! (daystarter). But I can't help thinking that poor pooch second from left in the air is about to get an owwee!

Well, try as I might, I could not get that proposal finished on time without an all-nighter. So now I've been up for 26 hours and still have "regular" work ahead of me.  Hopefully after everyone gets to critique it, I can run the edits and then get some sleep. :-( I feel sad for me!


Good job finishing the proposal, and best of luck today!

Argh, ((Agnus)) good luck

Argh, ((Agnus)) good luck staying awake today! Well done on getting that proposal done though - it takes grit to stay up all night working!


Hope you get some sleep soon!
