Journey 6pm . . .ahem . . .

I've been MIA getting ready for a family party yesterday.   It was a successful party but I'm beat!

 Today was a work holiday and I spent the afternoon working on my taxes.  My 2011 taxes.  I would like to report, rather smugly, that my taxes are DONE, e-filed (because last year I got my social security info all straightened out!), and the check written for the money that I owe.   I even had the money saved up that I anticipated having to pay.   I have also finally increased my tax withholding so maybe I won't have to pay next year.    

Sometimes this recovery thing can feel pretty good. 


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

thanks for all the tax congrats!

no one else would understand  :grin: Thanks for being here you guys!

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

Very Happy for you, Jo! :)

Monday feb 20, 2:50 pm, AllOfTheAbove.

Good, Monday and still a lot of day.

I've been at _ and I fell in one of those "zones" in which I can't help but think on failures. Leads to disaster like these thoughts.

Fortunately /_/ gave me a reminder on why all this was happening. I grabbed money and went for medicine.

So I'm here in the middle of a tomato.

I have to:

- Make appointment for V.

- Cut contract.


Light for everyone.


Fear is only a thought and as a thought you can ignore it.

End of day, AllOfTheAbove, 20 feb 2012.

Yeep, yeep, 7x25 pomodoros! 4 went to study Pd and 3 for my project, muahahhahahaha.

I love you all. Thank you for understand. I understand you too.

Agnus checking in

Thanks for the threadstarter and PresDay greeting, lennon. Today is a work holiday for me but I still have a few overdue things I could/should do to be ready for work on Tuesday.
:PMIT1: book travel for B and me for March trip - delayed but not procrastinated; found out fares might be better if I book tomorrow - they were sure high today!  Almost 30% higher than when I looked last week :P
:blush:MIT2: outreach to the 2 W projects Nope
:blush:MIT3: Proj R reports Nope
:rolleyes:Spend at least 20 minutes outdoors in the lovely sun; maybe sweep porch and patio - sun yes, sweeping no
:blush:Pay bills and log receipts Nope
:blush:Enjoy today's big sales to buy an Ipad cover, and do some furniture shopping. Nope. On the up side, look at all the money I saved by NOT saving 30% on anything! lol

:)Next I'm going to start a Forum question about how people manage excessive email (work and personal but mostly work), eat my breakfast, and have some quiet time before resuming MIT1.
Hope everyone has a great "procr-abstinent" day!

kromer 10:30 CI

OK, in the last few days I've been pushing/breaking some lab rules in order to protect myself from the consequences of my procrastination. Yesterday I realized that this is totally stupid, as well as unethical (duh! but I was panicked and not thinking clearly). Luckily, it's not too late to set things right, so I'll do that today (done! yay for me!). It will delay my expts by a couple weeks, but as procrastination consequences go, that's not too bad.

Other than that I need to:
*Finish cleaning bench (working on this now)
*Check on expts (will do this soon)
*Do geno. (more than half-way done with this)
*Small group
*Schedule for the week (will do this soon)
*Score 1 (wt) (working on this now)
*Look into reporter cells, plan for opt. fixation, finish W18 plan

*Go to library

OK, starting with 20-30 min cleaning, then I will start geno. 

kromer sets things right

You go girl!    

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