WingArtist's Check-in (9/17/2012)
Apparently, I was going through some tough times because of college transitions, even though I got some great ideas to improve my productivity. I still need to deal with my parent's pushing on my art goals, and try to explain her about this site properly without misunderstandings.
Anyhow, here's my plan:
So wish me luck!

Dieing_to_live's check in 9.17.12
Get white shelves from shed
Clean out closet
Put clay oven & press on shelves
Put soap & scents on shelves
Put books (except TQ, meditation, jewelry books) on upper shelf
Put candle supplies on shelves
Put fabric & sewing supplies on shelves
Pack up sewing supplies in deco boxes
Use deco boxes to store extra beading supplies
Put spiral cutters on shelves
Put completed jewelry in large box - shelve.
And then again, all that may have to wait since I have to first get the cabinet I just emptied cleaned out and re-stuffed so I can make a path to the closet.
Geez! All I wanted to do was get my work area organized so I can get to all of my beading supplies without having to look in 2 different room ---- not re-organize the whole blasted house!
That screaming you hear is me. >.<

list + Pro check-out
Thanks once again for the thread starter, Mole.
The new week is starting. On the weekend I did some enjoyable recreational things, some housework and caring (adequately but no more) for my mother. I have found it very stressful having her staying here, not least due to space problems, but last night finally saw some connections with old, old stuff and why she still sets me off. I wish I had sorted some of this out earlier in life, thought I had, but here it all comes again :(
I will concentrate on doing my new list for the week and then working consistently on KP and TP projects, using chat box if needed. After lunch I will consider options to go to M tomorrow and ring JC if necessary. Will also ring DR and post/email invoice for M.
Wishing everyone all the best for the new week!
Salamander's check in - Mon 17 Sep '12
Thank you, O Mole, for starting our thread so ably!
Looking forward to making this a good week, and hoping I am not overscheduling. My intention is to begin this process by going to the chatbox for some instant motivation with microbursts (even if mine have to be smaller than other people's).
Breakfast Shower Sign and prepare documents to post to accountant (Admin 15m) Print out JS records (Admin 15m)
Leave house (at 1230) at 1450 Buy more cat litter
Washing up Cook nutritious casserole/bake potatoes Change cat trays
There is a ton of stuff here to do.
I might be overscheduling. If so, it is more important to my PA recovery that I go to the gym on Tuesday instead rather than get all panicky and feel bad.
Have already adapted list to exclude going to the gym today Monday. Will go on Tuesday when it will be the most important thing I do.

EleanorBE's Monday List
Thanks Mole - who cares about the font, great sentiment!
Here's what I need to do tomorrow
Cut talk slightly (on train)
Attend conference, give talk
Fill in claims formand give it in before leaving - no, will have to send it otherwise won't have taxi receipt!
If time in a break, look at SS information.
That doesn't look too bad - conferences are so much easier than real work!! Don't know if I'll have wifi to cross things off so may have to return to this on Wed.
