Melin 8 pm

Very late check-in today.

I have been very anxious and I recognised some depression signs today. So I left work quite early and worked on trying to lift my mood, by exercising, being with my children, turning to HP and being out in the sun.

Now I feel fine again but I really don't know where to start.  So I'm going to work on my master list and then break it down into manageable chunks. I will work with that for about two hours but then I need to go to bed. When I feel as unstable as I have done today sleeping is really essential.


e's Wednesday ci april 14 2010

I have had a run around and catch up morning already: I woke up 20 minutes before I needed to be at a doctor's appointment and thankfully, was able to get up and go because I had showered last night. She pointed out to me today that I tend to put myself down too much and that was in my way of shining, so I will not point out the places I felt I fell down this morning. Now I am home and I am sitting in a large pile of papers, but am actually happy about it, because they had been waiting for me in the dining room in boxes for months and I am actually going through them.

for the rest of Today:
laundry shift
put away clean and wash dirty dishes
swish and wipe the bathroom
taxes: I have been putting off trying to retry transferring the taxes off the broken computer because I am afraid they won't be rescuable: it is time.
File, file, file
shred shred shred old tax records that got wet in the flood last month. A great excuse to let go and let God: I place my faith in my Higher Power that it is okay to dispose of these items.
cook dinner: chicken and fennel ravioli with tomato and marscapone sauce and salad - all of which is made ahead of time (thanks to hubby and Dave's Fresh Pasta.
12 step meeting tonight.
I pray for the willingness to give up another zynga game.

peace out,

movingalong facing tax paperwork

Hello all.

Today I get to face the task of filing taxes.

I shall regard this as an opportunity. Something I "get to do!"

I choose to do the next right thing, with help of higher power.

-- movingalong

wonderful moving!

I love the idea of facing taxes as an opportunity to do the right thing! Here is to doing the next right thing!

kromer 9:20 CI

Have had a couple of bad days, hoping that I can use today to turn the week around.

(Though actually, looking at what I've accomplished this week, the last couple of days felt awful, but in terms of progress they were decent--could be better, but could have been worse)

Lots of scheduled stuff today:
Mtg 11-12:30, mtg 5-6, OH 7-8:30

*Analyze biosensor data (started)
*Notes mtgs (started)
*Finish presentation outline
*Take found ipod to campus police lost and found

Other tasks:
*Bible study
*Check on expt
*Work on EA's stuff
*Make doctor's appt, microburst finding dentist, order tennis shos
*Remind about HPLC and GSEA, talk to AL about gene sets

OK, working on pres outline for 30 min now, then I'll work on biosensor thing and go to mtg. 

Journey 9 am &

Getting a bit of a late start this morning because I stayed up late watching "The Blind Side".   Good movie!  I slept a little bit late, went to the gym, stopped by the grocery store (again!) and still haven't had a shower.   I'm going to make my todo list, drink some coffee, and then grab that shower.   Obviously I'm working from home today  :grin:

UPDATE 11 am Took me quite a while to really get started today but I'm finally working pretty well now, using Instant Boss.

hope4meandu checkin (8:38AM)

These are the things I'm procrastinating about & need to turn over. I pray for the willingness to do them:
-balancing checkbook
-looking in wallet
-separating receipts
-any type of cleaning
-contacting Empire about p.t. co.
-calling G
-doing tz
-sending $ to B

Also, I am aware that I need DA help (a sponsor or something) but I am not connected there at all, so need to add that to the list.

Also, I contacted my old therapist for help with my girl. With my emotions in the mix, I'm not being a good advocate. I get mired in depression and sadness and INACTIVITY (fancy that). Wonder y I'm here?

Anyway my HP be with you in every step you take today!!

♥"Prayers for my Yoffee's complete & speedy recovery and prayers for direction & clarity on how she can be healed.♥

strike ci 7.46 am

Goal of the day: apply for 1 job

  1. check, write, send 1 job application
Totally disaster day today. I've been procrastinating for almost 9 hour straight (since my check in basically at 8 am, it's now 5.30 pm - ridiculous!). I was just going to check something, and one thing led to another and - whammo! - procrastination mode. I'm behaving like an impulse driven 6 year old. I only need to procrastinate for an hour in order to feel stresses out by that lost hour, and then I procrastinate more. Im going to call it quits today because I NEED to get off the computer. To late to start working now, I might as well spend some quality time with my parents (whom I'm visiting). Good to know some of you have had bad times as well, really good to know. I'm starting fresh tomorrow. I wish you all a great rest of this day!
