  • "A human being is a part of a whole, called by us _universe_, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest... a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty." Albert Einstein
  • It starts here- me
  • Staying the course

    Well rested but slightly paralyzed by too many choices of things to work on. Just need to start grinding away. Other than a noon meeting, there is nothing in my way (other than my won self).

    Goal 1: 30 mins x 2 cases

    Goal 2: Noon meeting, then lunch

    Goal 3: 2-6:30 PM, 30 mins x 9 cases

    Goal 4: 6:30 -7:30 Organize

    Goal 5: 7:30 PM, Leave

    hope4meandu day 2 here; day 3 at work

    Thanks lennon, peace to you as well!!

    The weather is cool & beautiful it makes me feel renewed. Me and Yoffee had a long, lovely walk this a.m.

    Thankfully yesterday had a good talk with my vet and he said to start GoldieSmurf on new food to see if his runs, vomiting & face sores are allergy related.

    Have this thing to go to next week, with hubby and other couples, and I don't want to go, but can't find a good way to cancel, turning it over. WOO HOO!!! just found out people feel really close to will be coming, so I'm at ease now, thank you & HP!!!

    To do:
    -find GoldieSmurf's food
    -food chart
    -spending chart
    -check emails

    good hard workout this morning, AND got to work on time.  

    I have one item to take care of quickly this morning, then I'll have some coffee and make my todo list for the rest of the day.

    Update 10 am just have to share that I have completed 13 of the 36 'financial paperwork type things'.   I might start enjoying doing this stuff if I continue breaking it down into 5-min activities.   It's not all financial, but it's like phone calls, appointments to make, things to fax or scan, all the stuff that I hate doing; but I didn't want to call it 'stuff I hate doing' lol.

    Update 11:15 3 of 6 MITs completed.   #3 is quick, so I'll do it and then head out to an early lunch with colleagues.   I'll finish #4 & #5, should take about an hour, then spend the afternoon on #6, and get as far as I can on that project today.   With luck I might be able to finish installing and testing in the test system today and be ready to move on next week.

    Update 1 pm #6 for the next few hours, reserving the last hour of the day for lower priority stuff.   I'll get as much done on this project as possible in the next 3 hours, working in 20 min blocks.

    Update 5:00 pm got LOTS done on project this afternoon.   Leaving work on time today because it's "date night".  Hubby and I are going shopping for a bday present for our granddaughter who is turning 2 tomorrow, then out to dinner.

    Scribbler's TGIF CI 7:32 a.m.

    The kids are out of school. I wish I were. Things like staying fit, training for races, booking gigs and playing music are easy. What's hard is working 40 hours a week for 40 years. I've been doing this Procrastinators Anonymous thing for over a year and, while I'm pretty pleased about how well I feel I've been doing on my daily tasks, I still don't seem to be making enough money to pay my bills, much less get out of debt.  It's frustrating. But, I've found in the past that I often want to give up just when my efforts are about to yield fruit. So off I go...
