Journey 1:15 pm

Late check in, crazy weekend.    Saturday I ran my first ever 5K!   I'm quite proud of myself 

My son called me during the race and said he had to have an emergency dental appt so I went over there sweaty straight from the race to keep the grandkids.   He ended up having to go to the emergency room so I had the kids all day then had to work Saturday night.  Needless to say, I was exhausted!   The install went well, although I did make a couple of mistakes that I had to fix on the fly.  

This morning I woke to a sick doggie and had to call in a work from home day and rush him back to the vet.   He has an infected tooth - pretty much the same thing my son had over the weekend!    The news was relatively good (although expensive).   He's 13, very old for a border collie, and they did full body x-rays and complete blood pre-surgery blood work and pronounced him very healthy for an old guy.   Except for bad teeth, of course - that's gonna require surgery to remove the bad teeth and scale the rest of them.  I'll just sign my next paycheck over to the vet I guess *sigh*

So I got a very late start, and I was already tired, so I am going to put in a good half day and leave it at that.   

Oh, yeah, and my dryer is broken  :P .  The weather is gorgeous here though so I am going to hang out clothes on my tiny little clothes line and throw the rest over the porch railing to dry.   I guess part of that paycheck will go to the dryer repairman.


Avoiding the truth consumes great effort and energy. - Jim Loehr

Same old

On the plus side, had a productive weekend, finishing up taxes (had extension until today) and working on professional society related tasks I had been putting off too long. But I am back at work today and dragging, trying hard to avoid facing some anxiety provoking cases. Well, I know that if I follow the "drill," progress will be made, in spite of myself.

Goal 1: 30 minutes working on 1 or 2 case addenda requested

Goal 2: Lunch, 30 minutes

Goal 3: 30 minute work blocks x 6

Goal 4: Try to leave at 5 PM for a complete change of pace

Goal 5: Post office, FedEx, supermarket

Goal 6: Walk 20-30 minutes, probably indoors, since it is raining cats and dogs here

Goal 7: Clean kitchen, do some laundry

Goal 8: Work on professional society projects, if time

Goal 10: To bed by 10:30 PM (not 11, not midnight...)

Back to report.
