Friday 12th August

Welcome to the end of the working week

Time for an effort to finish up for the weekend

wrkinprogrss: 08/12/11

Didn't make it here, yesterday, but had a reasonably productive day. And now I'm back.

TODAY, I will:

  • check SR
  • post this at PA
  • check balance mindmap (wip)

  • attend 10:00 meeting
  • follow up re wiki additions from 1:1
  • pursue answers to SVN Qs from 1:1 (wip)
  • pursue answers to laptop Qs from 1:1

  • take required course (wip: modules 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, and 7)
  • check what else is due for work, today; do

  • shower & wash my hair
  • unload/load dishwasher (significant progress)
  • wash pan, cook soup (and maybe listen to Tuchman?)

  • do 15min of Qi Gong
  • use the Balancer (did just a bit)
  •  take bedtime Rx

I prefer to accomplish these, too:

  • eat oatmeal
  • make progress with spec reading
  • set up SVN directory for new version

  • start rough-drafting changes
  • think about weekend priorities
  • see if C of C replay is available

  • do a warm load of laundry
  • pay & mail bill
  • cook rhubarb

  • think re &/or experiment w/ dance solo
  • put mandala graphic on cell phone
  •  balance checkbook
  • bed w/ lights, sound off by 11:00

Best wishes for your day!

TJ day

Must finish BW project TODAY!

Biggest procrastination problem right now is exercise - I know I should, I feel better when I do but I just can't WON'T do it.  I recognize it is my choice, my free will - what is the matter with me!

MUST DO > Go for a walk at lunch.

about exercising

Hi, TJ,

I've found that I exercise more regularly if:

a) I choose kinds of exercise that I actually enjoy doing (dance and Qi Gong, for me)

b) I sign up for and attend weekly classes in those kinds of exercise

c) I set myself a SMALL daily exercise goal inbetween class days. Currently, I try to do about 15 minutes of Qi Gong exercises every day--that's something I can do at home without special preparation, even if it's already bedtime.

Good luck with finding exercise strategies that work for you!


Thanks for the suggestions!

I will keep trying - the SMALL daily exercise goal is probably my best bet at this point.  I did not go for a walk at lunch - day got eaten up by out of my control issues - i.e., the boss and missing staff still.

Hope everyone has a good weekend.

Finding that my greaest hurdles are the mundane tasks because they pile up.

daily maintenance needed


Well said! Will check in later on drive into office with you. 


So agree

I hear you!  Hence my ongoing battle with the BW project - let it get out of hand and it became a nightmare.

Checking in late but doing well, have a great weekend everyone!
