5.45 pm Saturday
Thanks for the starter, Hypatia.
My Friday went pretty well, put in a fairly solid day at my client's office, it's a routine that seems to be working OK for me even though I have to fight feelings that as a consultant I don't belong there with the full-time employees. But some work part-time and there are even other consultants.
On Friday I got some good acknowledgement for some work I did last year, which helped.
Today I have done some domestic things, spent some time with my husband and had some rest.
Hope you all enjoy your weekend!
Show up (done) Nothing exciting today, but that is good too, I don't have to create chaos to feel "normal" or shut down until the next disaster happens. I have been here 2 years and 2 weeks- wow, Grateful to have a place to check in and the connection of PA (ers).. Have a good friday.
I want to thank my Higher Power for this program, this website, the telephone and online meetings, and my life.

This is the 74th day that I have followed through with the following:
I'm making a pledge to quit using the dating site(s) and Facebook for 90
days. I had written this on my 43things account, but I wrote that I
wanted to avoid dating sites for a full six months, so I think 90 days
is reasonable for a dating site. I also have a penchant for looking at
and stalking certain people repeatedly on the dating website and online,
which has prevented me from sanity. Just all out stalking certain
people has been all out crazy; if I'm not stalking one person, it's
another person. During times I've tried to quit the dating site
before, I have visited people's dating profiles, even while not
registered on the dating site. So part of my whole thing with quitting
dating sites is also quitting stalking people's profiles that I've tried
to date in the past. If I accidentally load a dating site, b/c I
accidentally clicked on something obviously that doesn't count. You can
hardly hang a cat on the Internet without hitting a dating site ad.
Intention is everything.
In other words:
Self-improvement is the name of the game, and your primary objective is to strengthen yourself, not to destroy an opponent. Maxwell Maltz
For a second there, I was SO impressed!
LOL. Sigh. :)
Happy April 1st!

Thanks for the starter Hypatia!!
If I keep showing up, Monday, will beat my most consecutive days of showing up at work since Janauary. I'm determined, and Mondays are my worst!!
Fighting the feelings of depression since yesterday. Praying for the willingness to work out again. Next week I hope to take care of transferring my credit card to another bank and closing out that debt.
-find groomer he makes house calls
-find someone to clean on Sunday?
Wishing you all the best day and weekend!!!

Finally Friday, this has been a loooooong week. My todo list is made, so off I go. I hope you all have a productive and enjoyable day.
OK, this week so far has been pretty awful. I need to dial down expectations temporarily, so I can break this cycle of feeling like a miserable failure all the time.
For today, if I can at least get frozen sections done (don't need to be good, just need to try this technique out), I'll call the day a success. Not adding ANY more tasks to the list until that's done
OK, I tried out frozen sections, and turns out there are some serious problems with this that I need to solve.
So, three more tasks for the day:
*Plan for fixing frozen sections
Did pretty well yesterday as far as completing assigned tasks. Question: Did I put enough or the right tasks on the schedule? I still have a nagging feeling that I'm falling behind on important business, but I suppose that's inescapable. Today I have one major gotta-finish project, which I have broken down into smaller pieces, along with some less critical ones. Off to it...
Woo I'm checking in before class!

Encouraging start this morning - I actually paid a bill only 2 days after it arrived. I'm hoping that's a good omen.
It's another unstructured day at work today so I'm going to have a go at outstanding reports. I didn't realise there were so many - there's no way I'm going to get them all done today.
Plan for the day
10.40am and no reports started - spent so long on the two phone calls! Psychologically I do much worse if I don't start the difficult stuff first thing in the morning
And good morning!
Be sure to take a little time to "celebrate" your little victory. One problem I have is that I don't spend enough time enjoying the positives, if that makes sense. I'll be like "ok, I got an A on the paper, but STILL . . ."
Have a great friday!
Many thanks for the encouragement.
state of play so far today
OK so I had a great plan to write at least 9 reports before my boss came back on Monday, but you can't have everything!
Have a great weekend everybody!
