Innertruth - work for today

Horrible day yesterday. A computer program wasn't working and I spent several hours trying to fix it by removing software, reinstalling it downloading another version and then installing that. Nothing worked!

I phoned my tech guy and ccame up with a band-aid solution that I'm going to try that won't cost me anything. (I figured I needed to buy new software at $230 and perhaps pay for $100 to $150 in tech support.) So hope this works!

Needless to say, the only thing I accomplished was cleaning my desk (found some things I was looking for) while waiting for the software to load. (Cleaning my desk is one of my many tasks for the weekend!)

To do today:

- Print resumes

- Go to job fair

- If time permits, go to department stores to drop off resume after job fair

- Call headhunter

- Evening:

- run

- apply for 3 jobs (WG, Cfound, unknown)

- spend 1 hour on LI research (put on hold until Fri. if newslette comes back for review)  

- filing (while watching TV)

- handwash 2 sweaters

- wash 1 load dishes

- call drugstore to renew Rx       

- "To do" list for Friday

Show up, suit up, and look up (done)

Did some "backlog clean up" in garage took 3 hours with 2 people, I could never have done it alone (more emotional reasons than physical) , cOntinue for today, I don't 'WANT TO"  thank goodness I am humble enough to use tool that helps, 2nd person. thanks for being here.

Journey 10 am

Back in the office today.   I worked late last night and got most of the stuff done for this weekend's install.   Today I need to prepare the backout and followup jobs, and review review review!    This should be the last super-intense week of Big Project.   We'll have one more production install, but if this weekend goes well, then that one should be fine too (famous last words!).  

I'm taking a day off on Tuesday so I just need to hang in there until then . ..


I value my time and use it wisely - Journey
