*waves at Ag* nice to see you

I wondered where you'd been!  You should schedule a nice vacation when the pressure is off and spend some time with your family.  hugz!

Not a bad day yesterday. Hoping for something like that today:


  • Get up by 7
  • Coffee, paper, breakfast, water plant
  • Check-ins


  • Add 5 to CP db
  • Pay bills
  • Finish CIO pack
  • Email BG re: Pack 2
  • Call re: Masters10
  • Send query


  • Do SB paperwork
  • File safekeys add
  • Call Hill re: invoice
  • Send BN ideas
  • Call RB re: vacation


  • Fun w/kids
  • Prep for swim meet
  • Bed by 11

Later ... I did okay today. Got the critical stuff done. And I did get in a run, which was good. I am getting over a cold that has hampered that kind of stuff lately.  Now I'm off to shop for some goodies and pick up the kids for vacation -- a week off! Country cabin! River! Mom and sister! Hanging out! Yes!


Agnus 9:25am

Good morning!  Long time no check-in:blush:...actually been too busy to think how to post a daily list, as it's been pretty much a manic frenzy since June 1.  Procrastination is not the problem lately, more an even more unrealistic workload than usual. I am one of only 2 people in our company who can do the work most in-demand this month, and so far it has cost me vacation plans, time with our kids/grands, and large chunks of weekend due either to work or exhaustion:(.

This makes me think I'm headed for major procrastination problems after the storm subsides. I believe my addiction stores up resentments during times like this, to justify procrastination later when the external pressure's not so bad.   So I'll keep showing up when I can, and be prepared to "resist the beginning" when the pendulum swings back toward procrastination.  For today:

  • dmt blurb DONE

Journey 9 am and 5 pm CO

Happy Friday!  Woot!  Yesterday was a bad day, but a good day, too.   I had pc problems and spent a lot of time on the phone with the Help Desk, then spent some time backing up data in case my hard drive has to be replaced.   So my list and my schedule went right out the window which is usually very bad for me.   However, I took a few minutes to have quiet time, regrouped, and spent the rest of the day productively.   I still feel bad that I didn't get some things done that were on my list although it would have been impossible.  :rolleyes:, but I'm happy that Ididn't just freak out and waste the rest of the day!

I have a task that I want to get done asap, so I'll be back later with the todo list for the rest of the day.

UPDATE 5 pm  Well I never came back with the todo list, but I did the asap task, which took most of the day, and did two other small but important tasks that had to be done today.  I'm done for the day . . .and the week . . .!  I'll see you tomorrow with a list for household weekend stuff.   One of my husbands cousin's passed away last week so we *may* go to the funeral on Saturday, but I'm not sure.  He has about a million cousins and he's not that close to this bunch.  But it's his family, so whatever he wants to do is fine with me :-)

Crazybug 8:20 CI

Really proud of myself that I've exercised the past 3 days.  That's been a major area of procrastination for me.  Didn't accomplish much yesterday or last night otherwise. Hence my list today looking scarily similar to yesterday. Sigh. Today is a new day, though, with no mistakes in it. 

Today's goals:

  • review article - in progress
  • Filing (20 min) - at end of day
  • Flesh out services and solutions
  • Fill  tracking sheets
  • Figure out how to put data support link on homepage
  • Get text to wrap
  • Migrate more pages
  • Test out forms
  • Contact about static IP
  • Contact about antivirus and static IP
  • Contact phone co
  • Take boxes down to dumpster - in progress

If time:
add phone number to web form

Try to fix QB not printing problem
Set up new filing cabinet - put in rails

re: crazybug exercises!

Good for you!  I have gotten in the habit of exercising every day, and really does help your attitude. . .I still need to lose weight though!
