CI Do It Now 4:53 pm sun



cheering for dotnow!

Congrats on getting started on this goal! How did it go? 


sam e to you !


It was a  good start and I am continuing - that is huge


(Quick question:  I can find the edit button for todays CI but not yesterdays - why ?!) 

disappearing edit button

I believe that a comment's edit button disappears if anyone has replied to that comment. The only workaround I know for it is to copy the contents of the old comment into a new one, which should be editable.

Let me know if you'd like me to offer support some way that doesn't mess up editing?

wrkinprogrss: 09/25/11


brush teeth and splint
finish loading and start dishwasher

decide what to say and leave a phone message for R
clean shoes
decide whether to attend today's P.A. meeting

get something to eat
prepare block party food (party canceled due to rain, no need to prepare food)
attend some of block party (caught the tail end, which happened after all)

go to Qi Gong class
do further grocery shopping (enough for now)
use Balancer

assess and schedule or do next laundry (would be best to do a warm load, today)
cook artichokes if still good
make sink progress (can listen to new podcasts while doing this) (started, but did only a fraction of the amount I intended)

 put garbage out at curb
some rewards? (more of a reading binge, not well-thought-out rewards)

no reading or listening after 22:00 (nope)
aim for lights out by midnight at the latest (nope)
 take bedtime prescription

also worthwhile:

more disk clean-up progress
catch up and balance checkbook
paper sorting/storing/filing progress

Good wishes for your Sunday!

(Monday-morning Postscript: In the short run, I think I need to start putting at least microsteps on the needed house tasks ahead of some things that normally take priority.)
