Whoops double post!


Journey 11 am

forgot to check in yesterday - working from home yesterday and today and took care of some medical appts I'd been putting off since the big project started at work.   Went to the dentist yesterday and went to doc this am to get thyroid check.  Now I just need to schedule that mammogram and I should be good for the rest of the year.  

Moving along pretty well with the big project, getting ready for another rollout this weekend.   I check in with my mentor/project manager daily to review progress and ask questions - keeps me going quite smartly.   there is something to learn in this I think.

Show up (done)

So grateful to check in today. Have been showing up but feel like on a "dry drunk" with the racing of thoughts in my head of the "to do" and "not done" lists. I know one is not supposed to be able to think 2 thoughts at the same time,however,  if that is true, the speed of my thoughts cannot significantly distinguish the separation of time and I am really getting worn out. Not to mention, paralyzed because as soon as I start something, the thoughts race and flood my brain  about something else.

Thank you Moving for having the meeting listed below. Boy do I need a PA meeting. Use what works , chat rm.
