Hi and good wishes to all.

I'm continuing to experiment with noticing what helps and what doesn't. Yesterday started out decently but I ended up burning a bunch of time on escape-reading and games in the later afternoon and evening. I hope to do better, today, on combining productivity and enjoyment.

= made or am making progress
Laughing = done or done enough

To Do: Helpful: Self-Sabotage?

Laughing clean b. sink
Laughing hwash dbr

Frown decide: glasses adjustment today? (no, lost to self-sabotage)
Laughing if not, decide: wash hair today? (yes, I'll do this, it gives me more choices for tomorrow)
Laughing eat something! (oatmeal!)

Laughing teeth, etc.
Laughing shower, wash hair, etc.
use eardrops

Laughing make shopping lists incl check state of vegies for soup
unload/load dishwasher
Laughing decide if shopping fmkt, grocery store today (not fmkt, yes groc store)

pay bill
Frown to P.O to mail bill payment? (postponed)
Laughing shopping at grocery store

Laughing wash light load incl choli
Frown decide if testing bleach on scarf (possibility postponed due to bingeing)
Laughing de-frag and anti-v scan

cook soup & rice (cooked soup but not rice)
Laughing cut fingernails

practice w/ eye make-up!
Frown rvw: what are 3 next tax prep acts? (postponed)

make notes re self-help & self-sabotage
Laughing QG
Laughing use balancer

aim bed by 23:00
Laughing take bedtime Rx
set alarm for 8:00

prioritizing first thing?

getting new audiobook to anticipate enjoying (and actually enjoy) during chores?

making this check-in post?

fiddling with formatting of this table (effectively costing me the option of getting my glasses adjusted at Dr. A's, today)

web-surfed during first meal (leading to a bunch of game-bingeing, costing time outside during afternoon)

idea: would having a nicely cleared place to sit down and eat and read printed books help me avoid automatically sitting down at the computer at mealtimes? (worth trying)

to watch about: is it harder for me to go from fiction reading/listening to chores than from nonfiction?

I need better strategies for getting to bed earlier 

Online Meeting PSA

Someone please sign up to anchor the meeting tomorrow! :)


Sorry, Katia -- I'm temporarily out of circulation for this meeting due to scheduling conflicts. I think I'll be able to resume doing some anchoring starting 5/13, but I won't be there this week or next week. Good wishes to all!


Maybe I meant hosting rather than anchoring? Not sure.
