pro's CI - 10:35pm (did it)

I did it. :) My apartment is picked up, dishes washed, teeth brushed, and I've showered - and it's not yet 11pm. So that is good.

Good night, everyone.

I'm posting to give myself a push now to get ready for bed I need to take a shower and brush my teeth.

Edge's Closing CI - 11:25PM

Today was unbelievably long and tiring. Reached work at 9:30AM and came back home at 8:30PM. I even have some leftover stuff to finish before 7AM tomorrow, so I'm going to call it a night and wake up early next morning to finish it off.

Night everyone. Keep ticking off those to-dos :-)

Hope your day went/is going well :-)

Julie's 8 am CI

I'm up and about-barely(: I will work on completing my morning routine and walking Zoe and then check back in at 9 am.

12:45 Time for bed!

I got a lot done today and will transfer what's left over to tomorrow. I have got to get to bed now. I don't feel really tired but I know I will be tomorrow. I'm still struggling with going to bed a little earlier and at a routine time. It seems pretty silly, but it really is difficult. I have done well with getting up everyday at 8 am. My husband is amazed by that and my daughters have been surprised by me being on time for things. So that's been fun!

Edge's CI - 3:35PM

Baby steps are key to getting back on track. Here we go:

X Adjust weekly schedule and send
- General folders

8:20am CI for Lark

I need to complete the second part of something I don't want to do at all, yet I said I'd do it. I shouldn't whine, huh? This week's tentative list has alot of stuff I've been procrastinating, and if most isn't done I'm going to be in a financial squeeze by month's end. The bad thing is, it's entirely avoidable.
 morning routine
 go finish the dreaded task
 call client about bill
 tidy up house
 on hour on project A when I return
 check in here

10:30pm CI for Lark

Things didn't turn out the way I'd planned today. Several things got done, but dealing with my sick relative delayed the other things. Tomorrow should be okay. Good night everyone.

Rexroth 07.26 BST

Todo today

up post this
prayer reflection meditation
deal with phone messages emails post
bath and wash hair
go out and file papers at court

Regards Rexroth

Rexroth 11.42 BST

Papers filed at court. No real problems and the job is done and so am I. I'm exhausted and need to rest. It's not the action itself, anding over some papers and some money and getting a receipt, it is what it means. I'm going to look at my procrastination in that way i.e. what particular actions mean to me and see where I get.

Regards Rexroth

Rexroth 18.38 BST

Well a lot of time has gone and I've got a few things done, bits of admin and cleaning etc as landlords are coming tomorrow to do some work.

Regards Rexroth

It's early, I'm tired, night folks.


goal for week

K, I've managed not to complete any of my goals since I've started posting here, which is not to say that I haven't been getting stuff done.  It is imperative that this week I meet a goal of clocking 50+ hours no matter what.  I need to offset a shortfall in last week's hours so that bills won't get out of control and I can maybe start setting aside some money for estimated taxes.

To Do:

  • n view merged and submitted for test
  • pub bug reproduced
  • trim added to fuji code and email follow-up
  • email re status of  remote search
  • test using combo boxes from js library


  • meet w/ TM
  • determine cause of email alert issue
