Monday 10th September 2012

 I like work: it fascinates me. I can sit and look at it for hours. I love to keep it by me. The idea of getting rid of it nearly breaks my heart.

Welcome to another week. Go well,  dear friends.

fudoshin: checkin: 1016pm

Please do not leave advice or feedback.  Thank you.  Prayers welcome. 



I waited until the last minute to add classes tonight, because I  really want to see if this research opportunity will pan out, plus I know it will be more expensive this way if worst case scenario I can only take one class, but I know it will ultimately be best for me.  I just think that Dr Mena might be a lot more willing to work with me if I have more time in the afternoons.  Gonna brush teeth, and go on a walk now.

elvira's evening

Still very tired after the weekend - mustn't be tempted to do too much

Check in 09.10.12

I should never pick a book up to read if I don't have the time to finish it. I didn't get to bed until 6am, and am now running late. :( I have a few things I want to do, and several I need to do today. I need to not pull out any excuses. Off I go!

  • Get paper for dogs
  • Call bank for balance
  • pay bills
  • Call D.
  • Clean bathroom (vent/cobwebs/clutter under sink)
  • Sew gussets in tunic
  • Sew sleeves in tunic
  • Edge neckline
  • Hem tunic/done
  • Email S
  • Call C
  • Work with pup on training - 20 min. 

The will to win, the desire to succeed, the urge to
reach your full potential... these are the keys that will unlock the
door to personal excellence.

Salamander's check in - Mon 10 Sep '12

First of all, my thanks to mole for starting this thread. Secondly, I would like to say that I skim through the tasks other people are setting themselves each day because some of them come with useful comments I might learn from. So I share the happiness of someone who has just completed a goal on which s/he has been procrastinating before - I just don't say so because I don't want to make it impossible for you to edit your task lists. Smile

I appear not to have a migraine lurking today, so will resume work towards my own overall goals.

Starting at 1205:

  • breakfast
  • skincare 
  • wash and dress myself

I will finish the third of these before sleeping tonight. Needless to say I hoped to do more than this. I had a bad night and have spent much of the day trying to catch up on sleep. Fingers crossed I can sleep tonight.

 Tomorrow is another day, my lovelies!
