Well, I did a huge amount, but not everything.

Ta da:

- picked up every single room (this took a WHILE)

- vacuumed, shook rugs

- cleaned out outside fountain (has fish--they'll live another week)

- put up more Christmas lights (but not all--couldn't find gutter hangers)--this took hours, too

- made dinner

To do (tomorrow):

- call my brother, my sister, someone about central heating system, email others

- revise, have someone look at, send application letter

- revise theory section of article

- office hours

Will check in tomorrow morning, in case something not on this list comes up.

pro's last CI - 10pm

I'm ready for bed well before midnight (or worse), wonder of wonders. I don't know if I'll be able to sleep, but at least I'm ready should sleep be available to me. I'd love to get up early tomorrow so I can leave early.

My neighbor is blasting her television. She did it last night until 3am.

How are you?

You seem a little wired tonight my friend. Me too. Perhaps we should both try to slow down and relax. Someone told me earlier to work on a gratitude list. Ba&^*#$.. I got one started.

pro's CI - 9:20pm

I'm going out of town tomorrow, overnight. I'd like to leave early. I go every month and every month I say that and then leave late. I thought about starting to pack tonight, but I don't think I will. I have a headache. It would be good if I didn't stay up late, though.

pro's CI - 1:40pm

I sent an email to someone I talked to about some freelance work that I would be unable to do it. The project would be very difficult for me, and not worth the time it would take or the money it would earn me. Plus it would do nothing towards moving me forward, career-wise.

Resigning outright is certainly a better course of action than endlessly procrastinating on it.

Well done

Well done Pro. If you can say no you can also say yes. Wishing you some good and rewarding work.

Regards Rexroth

thanks, Rexroth

I appreciate the support! :)

Hello, all. Didn't get much done yesterday. Certainly didn't post. Any connection...?

Today I am cleaning house. Wife and daughter are out of town, visiting wife's sister. (I know, this language sounds weird, but it's part of anonymity--I'm keeping them anonymous.)

I just looked over the house, and there isn't actually as much to do as there is usually. A few hours' worth, but not the whole day. So here's my to-do list:

- clean house
- finish putting up Christmas lights on house
- family finances
- work on theory section of article

Will post tonight. Thanks for being here.

Todo today

up prayer and reflection
deal with phone messages and emails
reflect on progress and plan work on legal/admin project
clean up flat - this is a biggie as I've loads of boxes all over the place, as I've sold chest of drawers, am giving away wardrobe tomorrow, and have a lot of hoarded food etc.
plan week
decide on voluntary work (1) - I should not go back when I've likely to burst into tears and I don't feel in the mood for making music
decide on voluntary work (2)for Christmas period - they need to know soon if I am available (so do I)
prayer and reflection
bed and sleep

Well cleaning up certainly was a biggie and what I did that wasn't on my list was to pullover a night storage heater and injure my foot. It does not seem to be broken but I'm finding it hard to walk on it. Will decide what to do tomorrow.

For now Good Night Rexroth
