Findingaway late check in

Friday 11.15 am

Thanks for the starter, Hypatia.

Haven't been very regular with checking in, in fact my other routines are all over the place or not happening. I am still getting some things done, though. Now I have a cold. Hope to get back on track soon. Today:

  • ring for reference (scary) - already left message yesterday but they have not rung back - rang again but out till 1pm
  • put business details in at council
  • get tickets for friends
  • complete and send job application before 4.30 pm yay, done by 5.10 pm but at least I got it in
  • bring washing in
  • ring J
  • text M
  • tidy living areas
  • dishes

Thank you all for being here. The chat box has made a big difference for me recently.

Hypatia, thanks for the pretty starter!!!

Realize that if I'm offered the job, which I hope to HP I'm not, I will turn it down. Hoping to focus on working temp until I can get into the animal care industry. Also want to look into going to school to be a vet tech, but uncertain, but need to research, which I started already.

To do:
-clean kitchen floors
-clean stairs
-resumes to temp agencies
-research vet tech schools & requirements
-get jewelry together for B

Show up (done)

Got my computer back, they wiped it clean, so I lost most of information on C drive- most likely did not need. Guess God does do for us what we cannot do for ourselves (ha ha).

Rexroth Check In

Thanks for starting Hypatia. I am all over the place today and it is gone midday.

Up prayer reflection
Put on washing machine
Long time on phone with friend
Ask friend for help over expedition equipment and he will come over not necessarily today
Deal with emails and mail
Read local paper and look on web to distract me from what really concerns me

List the things that are worrying me - I suspect these are also things I am putting off doing
That will do for now

Regards Rexroth

Rexroth Check Out

Above and that is about it

Prayer and reflection
Bed and sleep

Hypatia's check-in

Today is officially allocated for writing reports, except for a lunch-time meeting which my secretary says is to break up the monotony

the report areas I have to finish are

  • ASD - finished
  • special needs - 1 set done
  • school
  • LAC

The plan is to write the reports in groups of three and to take a short break between groups, Pomodoro style.  I won't finish them today, but I intend to make a big dent in the pile

2.25pm :meeting over.  I only got 3 reports done this morning (2 of them were really complicated).  I've now got 3 hours to tackle the next couple of sets

Other tasks

  • ring M
  • ring solicitor
  • check T
