e's yet another day check list

So far: dog walk with Murphy and Winnie, Dog walk with Mr. Stubbs, home errands for Margot, imperfect foods received. to do



more walks

Feed Billie the Kitt

input tax expenses

I am running out of energy and time to complete the taxes. Yesterday I didn't manage to get anything done in that area and I am aware that my schedule is going to be quite busy this next week with doc appointments and Ben the poodle coming on board again. I am going to pray for guidance and the ability to let go of my willfullness and become able/willing to do the next right thing. I would like to stay away from eating sugar, which has been impossible. I have to plan to cook roasted veggies and cherry crisp while it is cool. Murphy will leave tomorrow afternoon and I will have winnie and Billie through the weekend. Jojo starts on Sunday. So, life is feasible if I just take it one thing at a time, don't eat sugar so I don't sugar crash and take it easy on me if I mess up. 

And... so it begins

Didn't use Focusmate, but efficient anyway. 




Do my wine club work on the treadmill desk (I got bored of this and stopped) 


Try to go for 2 hour cycle in the afternoon, or similar depending on the weather.  




Keep my Ritalin dose at quarter - failed my final dose

Use timers to anchor evening routine
