Saturday 18th June

Welcome to Saturday

How I spend my day is how I spend my life


I did pretty good: 3.5 hours out of an available 4 (0.5 fell to my internet addiction). However, most of that time was given to a considerably easier portion of my project, which was arguably unnecessary. Plus, even other than that, I didn't progress that much. I'm not sure if this is due to perfectionism or if I'm just not rushing myself. :P Hard to say.

fudoshin: checkin: 8:20pm

Please do not leave advice.  Thank you.  Prayers welcome. 


Man.  I want to keep myself getting up early this weekend, so that I can go to SOS in the morning.  I think I've identified earning money (mostly to pay the rent as my first priority), which means I need to brush my teeth, floss, use listerine and my periodontic tooth brush, before running on the treadmill. I'm going to create a chart in excel so that I can track my running program and cross off days on it.

Hypatia's late check-in

I am having a bad time at the moment.  I'm overwhelmed at work, and today (Saturday) I've done very little except some shopping, taking my husband out for a walk, and putting the dishwasher and the washing machine on.  It's now 1040pm!

I'm putting off washing my hair because I hate doing it but it feels horrible when it's this greasy, and we're visiting family tomorrow so I need a hairwash and a bath. (and I hate having a bath when my hair is wet). As you can see I'm tying myself in completely unnecessary knots.

I am now going to "just do it" - I will wash my hair right now, and have a bath before I go to bed,



Same deal as the past couple days, except I definitely have a solid block of at least three hours to work. My goal is not to let myself slip into my internet addiction or other distractions during that entire time.

Gwen D CI: Sunday 1:42 PM PST

Today I told myself I would go back to my office, but I don't seem to be doing that. I can't seem to leave the house until it is clean. But I haven't done anything like that yet. I would be satisfied with the day, 2 pm to 5 pm, if I could

X clean the bathroom and the kitchen thoroughly

X fridge, X dishes, X counters, X floors 

put away all those clean clothes.

make an appointment for a haircut sometime this week.

Tomorrow is fathers day.

Into outdoor shop and met a young sales assistant who I would gladly lose in the wilderness anywhere - tried on boots and won't be back to that shop
Didn't have time to go to travel shop or to anywhere else and was almost late for meeting with friend - this is new as usually I give myself much too much time
