Hey Steppin

Wasting my life. Gosh, I can relate to that feeling. It occupies a lot of my contemplation. In my case, some might call it wallowing. Should have, could have...over and over in my mind...can't change a thing. I have today, though. It may not be exciting, but I will try to live it the best I can. Hang in there.

Yes, taking one day and one

Yes, taking one day and one task at a time. Overthinking it never pays off. But sometimes I get caught in a bad circle, and then it's nice to know that I'm not alone and it's not the end of the world. 

Steppin check in


To do:

Reply to mails

Buy gifts

Buy milk

Record song gift

Tidy up

Do the dishes

Make paperwork

Pack for tomorrow

Maybe practice a little piano but no pressure

It shouldn't be legal to in such a bad mood up to Christmas but I guess it's just one of those days where you really feel that you're wasting your life. Hope that it will be better when I get this stuff done.

Breakfast of Champions, Jo

Hey, Jo! Don't forget the Diet Coke component. That will clear that headache! Works for me, anyway.

Sad but determined

Feeling sad because my Christmas travel plans have to be postponed. But I am determined to get this done and get out of town as quickly as I can. My goal is once again to try to stay in the moment and concentrate only on the task in front of me, then move on. It *will* get done. I have faith. Just have to keep moving. I know already it won't be done today, and probably not tomorrow. Worrying or fretting or beating myself up over that won't get me any closer to getting done.

Goal 1: Up to 30 minute per case until 1:30 PM

Goal 2: Lunch

Goal 3: Up to 30 minute per case until 5 PM

Journey 8:30

First day of vacay!  Woke up with a headache.  Took some advil and it's better but still lingering, bah.   Must be the weather, it is humid and unusually warm for December.  Anyway, I don't want to waste the day so here goes


  • Exercise
  • Babysit grandkids?  about 4 hours?
  • pecan pie recipe
  • grocery list
  • grocery store
  • dinner 
  • dishes
  • laundry
  • quiet time
  • straighten 'my' table
  • Read 10 Minute Toughness 
That should do it for today.   I'm unsure what time and/or where I'm keeping the kids, so I can't plan perfectly which makes me feel uncomfortable, but we'll deal..
Update 11 am OK sitting here waiting to hear from the kids.   I'll call them and tell them I'm going to the grocery store now.   I'm sure it will be a madhouse.  But that's ok, it's kinda fun.


Be confident.  Stay focused.   One thing at a time.
