5:30pm CI for Lark

My day began before I awoke this morning, and I feel I've been hijacked all day. Hmm, "hijack" may be a really good term for use in this group. Now I'm home, and ready to do what I planned to do this morning. I'm really angry.
To do:
call client
do as much as possible this evening on work project A
spend between time on the other project
minimum cleaning in workshop
I know it's not good to post negative statements, but don't take my anger out on others.
check in in a couple of hours

Thomas C., 2:26 p.m.

Spent a lot of time walking around this morning on errands, and then spent time procrastinating big time. I had no rest at all during spring break between terms, so for the first time since Christmas, I don't have classes to prep immediately. Very nice. Hence, I treated myself to a little break, and don't feel particularly guilty about spending around an hour on YouTube. Of course, that's the first time in months that I've done such a thing and haven't felt guilty about it.

I do have classes to prep for the fall--I have to get the readings together within 10 days, because the copy center at my new campus needs two months to get the copyright permissions (school starts mid-August). However, I already have taught both classes a number of times, so the pressure is pretty low--I'm revising the reading lists, not starting from scratch.

Right now, the only thing on my to-do list is to put together my to-do list.

I'm going to try to exercise a little this morning - even if it's just 10 minutes.

Procrastination is the grave in which opportunity is buried.
