Hump Day for the Scribbler

I had a pretty good day yesterday, although not as good as the previous one. I decided not to go to an even in the evening because it was so cold outside. And my sister dropped by and spent a while chatting, which prevented me from finishing a writing project I had scheduled. Otherwise, not bad. I'll try to do even better today.

Thanks lennon for starting us!!

Hi Everyone!! Sorry in advance for my long post.
Katia, LOL, me too, the weather was so bad this a.m., I didn't go in, even though I was spoken to about my bad attendance, but I'M HERE NOW, now that the roads aren't so slippery, so that's amazing, thank HP and you all!! I wish I had used my morning for "doing" instead of sleeping, so I'm mad at me for that. Also, slightly mad that I'm not accomplishing more in the p.m.

Kind of am now realizing why I have trouble showing up at work. I should be grateful that I am no longer being yelled at out-right, after about 5 or 6 years of being screamed at by various bosses, etc. Now I'm being emotionally beaten up and if I don't speak about it, I will continue with my bad attendance as a way of acting out. I also am now recognizing how it contributes to my depression. I know "others" are frustrated with their lives and take it out on "others", so I hope to be able to rise above and see that he would treat anyone this way, it's just hard for me not to internalize and I'm mad at myself, after all those years of being yelled at and trying not to take it in, I let this Bozzo get to me, so upset about that.

Self-generate at work - UGH!!

To do:
-transfer Yoffee's records
-write Dr. H a thank you email
-call AMC to thank them for all their help
-get fedex # to track Yoffee's package & get total $
-what to do for M's birthday?

-work out (pray for willingness to work out 3x's this week)
-wash rug
-clean birdcage

Oh the weather outside is frightful. . .

But PAers are so delightful :)

Seriously it's insane here. Even my university cancelled classes, and they NEVER do that. Not that it matters as I don't have class today anyway. I'm hoping I don't have class tomorrow :)

Luckily I have plenty of things I can do inside. Mainly my problem set and reading.

Things to do
-#1 #2 #3 #4 #5 #6 [#7 #8 #9]
-Make bed
-Read Thucydides
-Start math hw.

Brain freeze. Not sure what else. I'm sure things will come up.

Journey 9:20

I'm working from home today and I hope to do some chores around the house as well as get all my work done today.   I've been to the gym and picked up some drugstore items on the way home.   I have Instant Boss turned on, and I'm making my todo list.   I think I have recovered from the lack of sleep over the weekend and I'm feeling pretty good and motivated today.   I have to work again this weekend but it will only be a couple of hours, and I have to get everything ready for that install, as well as some tedious admin type stuff.   But the tedious admin stuff is good work-at-home duty, so it's good. 

Have a productive and enjoyable day everyone!

10.03 pm Wednesday

thanks for the thread starter lennon.

My Wednesday is nearly over, so maybe will do list for Thursday.

Today I got myself to the client's office and put in a moderately productive day. This usually works for me; if I can just get there I do get some work done. Also I don't have all the domestic jobs to distract me. In fact I am letting them go just a little as I want to go out all day tomorrow too - on a field trip unless it is raining a lot.


  • look at news
  • download GPS
  • do dishes
  • exercises
  • bed


  • check stuff for field trip
  • do ft
  • make calls etc - see list
  • water garden if no rain


I wanted to post earlier, but forgot. But better late than never. . .

Nice to see you back! :)

((thanks Katia!))

It's good to be back too! (Although being at the beach was great.) Even though I totally stuffed up and didn't go on today's work trip. Got completely distracted reading a book which at last makes some sense of the dynamics of the relationship with my husband.  Dealing with the emotional fallout from our separation and associated issues could be a long process.
