Anxious procrastination

3:15 PM: Have just anxiously procrastinated for 2 hours trying to avoid completing some new job paperwork that 'had to' go out by FedEx by 4 PM today. Just thinking about it gives me butterflies in my stomach. I think it won't happen now, and will get put off until Monday. I have been sitting on this since June, occasionally doing something tiny, then setting it aside. Noinetheless, I WILL get it done today, even if it doesn't get mailed until Monday. I DO NOT want the pressure of having this hang over my head. This is not a good precedent heading into a new job where I want things to be different. Okay, no work, no nothing until this is out. Computer (my main 'decompressor') OFF.

Goal: Finish new job paperwork, pack it in FedEx envelope. WHEN finished, see if there is a later drop off place than 4 PM for today. If not, it goes out Monday.

Back later to report.

If you want a bridge

If you want a bridge meeting to keep you on track...I am around. have kid duty today and am hoping that I don't need to take the boys to the X Games (they went yesterday and I took them since it's close to my office) -- but I'll have my cell phone in any event.

Just remember one thing at a time :)

Happy Sat

Journey on the right day this time lol

Happy weekend!   I have a lot to do this weekend, and I don't wanna get started.   I did go online and pay my bills for the 1st.     and that reminds me, it's time for the gentle reminder.  I'll go do that and come back.

OK I'm back and on the right day

  • pay bills
  • finish upgrade prep
  • make grocery list
  • visit mom
  • petsmart
  • groceries
  • straighen house if time
  • dinner
  • dishes
  • upgrade tonight
  • go to bed as soon as it's done; zoo tomorrow!

Busy day, work and shopping and don't really have much time for house cleaning, but I'll try to give it a straighten.   I cleaned the bathrooms thoroughly last weekend so they'll keep, DD will do laundry and DH will probably vacuum.
