Much may be done in those little shreds and patches of time which every day produces, and which most men throw away.

Hi and good wishes to all!
I'm trying something different with check-in, today, in the style of Havi Brooks:
Superpowers that I want, today:
I'll cultivate the qualities of:
My Top Priorities:
Job: P project: finish review of printout and sshots, decide if putting in now
Home: load and run dishwasher
Recovery: continue experimenting with questions for myself if I feel tempted to seek respite in web-surfing
Accomplishments Including Progress, So Far:
Some process journaling, Havi-style
Attended and contributed to V meeting
Started bookending and check-in at P.A.
Put dirty dishes in the dishwasher and washed 12 plastic things to recycle
Made oatmeal with pecans and fresh nectarines
Read through this week's "chicken" comments at HB's site, for feelings of connection, comradery, and also more perspective
Morning. So far have been in a mediocre/mildly depressed mood. I did nothing all day/night yesterday, and I think it made me groggy. Then I woke up early in the morning today with a nightmare and went back to sleep, waking up late. I dont know why when I set my alarm for early, things like that happen. Anyway, moving right along ...
Done so far this morning:
Supplement, Got breakfast
Now for the rest of the day:
Meals/Water/Supplements -- *need to buy groceries
Start job apps
Practice just a bit
Bible + write out verses
Go out later
Today I need to:
Do some small-ish tasks:
*Check on experiments, restore (will start this soon)
*Request W/Wv mice from Jax (will do this soon)
*Figure out how many S8 samples I need, start collecting
*Practice gavage(will do this soon)
*Email out abstract
And some planning tasks
*Finish reviewing JK's paper
*Start reviewing SR's paper (try to get halfway through) (will do this soon)
*Finish intron/exon thing (working on this now)
*Work for an hour on a. plan (will do this soon)
*Work on designing probes (working on this now)
*Email about ES plan
And dealing with money situation:
Go to post office (will do this soon)
Check for books (will do this soon)
Make $5 on mech. turk
Check postings for part time coding or tutoring gigs
OK, my list for today is obviously WAY too long. I'll post a revised, SMALL list:
Email out abstract
Pick exons for probe design
Finish intron/exon thing
Go to post office
Check on expts, restore
Go through half of SR's paper
If I can do more, great, but this is a solid minimum.
Work for day:
Work & transit: 2:30 to 8:30 pm
Good morning . . .Happy Monday!
Back in the office after a nice weekend. Spent some time with the kids and grandkids, got a few things done around the house, and got some rest too. Now, back to work! I'll check in if I get stuck, otherwise have an enjoyable and productive day.
Embrace the suck!

Good morning everyone, it's the start of the week so I intend (intend) to get off to a good start and keep the impetus up over the week: plan something for each day and have a schedule. In fact google calendar emailed me an 'agenda' for the day (a feature I hadn't tried before) and lo and behold, there was a really important reminder of a favour I'd promised a friend that I probably would have completely forgotten! So that was good. :)
I'm also going to do some more volunteering work and get to a meeting, if not at 10am then the other options are 7.30pm or even 9pm.
Right now I have to take the dogs out, and feed them. And when I have time I'm going to advertise my flat to rent it out for a month while I'm away.
Hope everyone has a good day today :)
It's an inside job...
