Daily Check-in thread: Sunday November 16th 2014


Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,

The courage to change the things I can,

And the wisdom to know the difference.

Thy will not mine be done. 


Following on from the discussion in the thread here, I though I'd offer a temporary workaround to not being able to create new threads and the unmanageabity of such a long 17th March thread, by recycling the thread from exactly on year ago to use for each daily check-in. Feel free to use whatever system works for you.

Yours in fellowship,


First check in on the site

Hello, everyone.

Before I start my check-in I wanted to say I called in to the 11am EST daily call today (Saturday) and I was the only person on the call. It's OK if that's the case but I just wanted to make sure I am calling the right number and doing the right things.  I called the updated number (559 726 1300 and entered the access code 496261). I will try again on Monday.

I will only list the 3 MIT tasks I have to do today:

-call C (and then call R to report I did it)

-fill out 2010 forms

-spend 3 poms on writing

These tasks have been hanging over my head for days/weeks (especially the first two) and are part of what brought me to this sight. So let's hope I can check in later today and report success.

Cheers to all! 

@ minerrvas

Welcome to the site. Hope to 'see' you around.

Hmmm, the site is saying my

Hmmm, the site is saying my message posted at 12:11pm, when in fact the clock here says 11:11am EST. I am now thinking that I called in to the daily call an hour late (because of the fall time change). Perhaps the call is now at 10am EST ? 

@minerrvas re: 11am phone mtg


Yes there is an 11:00am phone meeting Mon-Sat
and it happens at whatever time it is in New York.
(11am EST winters and 11am EDT summers).

The Saturday meeting is more sparsely attended than the Mon-Fri meeting, so maybe you just found a day when nobody came ... or ... perhaps people arrived very late.

Please do try again on Monday!

@minerrvas re: editing posts

We cannot edit our posts if they've been replied to --
regardless whether it's ourselves who replied, or someone else who replied.
If there is a reply, then at the bottom of your post, you'll see
username, date, "reply", "printer-friendly version".
But not "edit".

If nobody has replied (not even yourself), and you are logged in,
then you should be able to see
username, date, "edit", "reply", "printer-friendly version".
Click "edit" to edit your post.

I didn't reply to your BELOW post, so as to ensure that you will be able to edit it.

Ooops. I see that someone else has replied to your post below. Oh well.

You could always make a new post and then, as soon as it has been posted, test trying an edit before there are any replies!

thank you, movingalong! I

thank you, movingalong! I will try again on Monday.

I am commenting to report that I did the first task on my list, call C, and a great weight has been lifted. It feels good!

I am now going to walk the dog, and then tackle my other two MITs.

I don't know how to edit my own messages, or else I would strike through my tasks on my original message.

Best anti-procrastination wishes to all who need them! We are in this together.

Check emails and posts - friend has received birthday card late (posted in very good time by me) and is still delighted with present
Make list for today and post it - curiously difficult as I don't know what I want or need to do.
Wash up and tidy in kitchen
Deal with post when/if it comes
Sort a little info for church tomorrow
Plan next week - my weeks start on Sunday

and then what? rest relax write waste time???????????
