AllOfTheAbove, wed. march 7th, 2:40 pm

Hy, my friends:

Has been blast the last days. I haven't stopped in a good measure but I still have many, many things to fix; for example, yesterday I got 20 mins late for work, new work :D, but I can't do that anymore. So I decide to cut it straight.

Also, I have problems with organization and although almost everything I do now can be classified as "important" and "worth life - doing", I still find myself running to meet my new schedule.


Love to everyone here. We understand this vice and that MEANS a LOT.


Today, I:

- Will work on online course.

- Will give class to O.

- Will Face That Monster.


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

I will write it down and leave it on my desk for morning.


Wow, Agnus, thank you!
That's an easy idea -- but one I hadn't thought of.

Agnus late ci

Stayed up too late three nights in a row now...last night it wasn't electronics but J having a late and needy night. So far today I have done prayer time, sponsor/sponsee calls, mind-mapping, meal prep, pet care, researched discounts at the university vet school and booked appointments, cleaned up some email, and begun work on Proj W. Today I also want to:

Spend 20 mins reviewing Proj W and book next steps
Begin voicework project (microburst starting with checking the filenames, printing, etc)
Book massage, haircut, nails for tomorrow afternoon

ADDED: Edit a paper for Proj R last minute request
Begin KC report (microburst with finding the folder, opening a template, etc)
Write report for ProjB and send to trigger payment (make sure DM is clear on invoice)
File expenses for last Proj R&C trips
File expenses for any other ODCs
Find folder for this weekend's trip, or print everything again (ugh)
Plan what to pack (need to do laundry first?)
Walk doggie @ 5.30
Eat dinner @ 6:15
Frown(bummer, didn't circle back around to this in time to act on it) Find a phone meeting that ends before 7 (for integrity: I committed 3/wk last Wed)
Attend 7:30 meeting, report honestly on my commitments
Relax - no electronics after 9!  If feel compelled to "look something up" after 9pm, I will write it down and leave it on my desk for morning.
Bedtime: shower, meds, mouth, pleasant reading, sleep by 10:30 with God's help!

But I am still showing up and thanks to PA I have a place I can. thanks PA

(Vic) hope your mom is ok

You are in my prayers today

Rexroth Check In 12.28

Woke at 10.00 so a late check in. Thanks for starting the thread lennon. Had decided to take it easy today.

Up prayer and reflection
Cleared up in kitchen
Checked emails, posts, post and phone message
Spent time lying in bed looking at programme on the web which stopped working

x Write journal in particular about decision over a new expedition
x Sort out appointments including, emailing friend over her birthday and another date, and checking doctor's appointment and society meeting
x Book ticket for society meeting
x Clean chairs and check table for return to friend who suddenly wants them back
Reply to an important post which is well overdue
x Keep searching for driving licence etc which is mysteriously missing - it was in a blue plastic holder with a few cards but not bank cards - I am not sure if I have lost it out of the house or in the house and whether it is worth reporting it missing.

Also - washed up and tidied up a lot

and if time

work on friend's benefit files which is nearly finished
x phone friend to ask if he can transport the table - actually emailed to give him time to think
phone friend to ask when she will be in

Regards Rexroth
