My list today;
-assemble filing cabinets
-start Ext Sp Assignment
-take break and walk dogs
-make dinner or go out with son
-make appointment with Dr
-complete Ext Sp Assignment
I am going to try to chunk these tasks into 15 minute bursts. If i can get the bones of the assignment done I will be happy. All of my other lists will have to wait and I will not deal with some sensitive family issues any more this week; ie i will not read emails and will field calls. We shall see.

Well, actually, I wasted the morning angsting. Then after tea I just moved the filing cabinets into place and cleared a path through the boxes to the desk, but I did clear the desk and got 1/2 way through the first assignment. What helped me start my writing was actually helping my son with a writing assignment. Also, trying the technique of putting on Vivaldi and my special "working outfit" (knitted hat, favorite cardigan, and geeky reading glasses, and making faces at myself in a mirror behind my computer) and scoffing No Doz and coffees. I forgot about the rest I had to do. Tomorrow will be busy; I have to also finish an essay. Yikes. I'm also trying a new strategy of dangling a reward for myself for every thing that I finish. I get the big one on fri night. I'm not telling.)
