I removed Amy's to-do list from the thread starter and substituted a welcome message. -pro

pro's evening check-in (time to get ready for bed)

Time to pick up the apartment, wash the dishes, brush my teeth, and take a shower. No delaying, because I want to be up early for work tomorrow!!

Procrastination is the grave in which opportunity is buried.

pro's CI - 10:40pm (I did it!)

Dishes are washed, pills swallowed, apartment picked up, teeth brushed, and I'm showered.

Last weekend I finally replaced my old moldy and mildewed shower curtain and dirty plastic rings. It is such a pleasure to take a shower with a curtain that isn't grossing me out, with pleasant looking rings that glide easily on the rod. I didn't even realize how much my old shower curtain was bothering me until I replaced it.

Procrastination is the grave in which opportunity is buried.

It worked

Tasks to complete by 8 p.m.

1.  10 new lesson plan ideas

2.  Print out new homework list

3.  Do homework assignment due tonight

4.  Read over next assignments

5.  Put laundry away

6.  Pick-up the house

7. E-mail three people about school

8. Get phone number

9. Get present

I will check back in between 8:30 and 9:00 tonight.


List above moved by pro from the thread starter.

I'm so happy!  I got all my stuff done on time.  I can't believe it.  This is the first time in my life that I've ever been done with my homework by 8 p.m.  I have lots of new ideas for lessons plans, as well.  Posting on here really helps out.  I felt responsible to get all of my list done by the time I said I would.  I'm off to make my list for tomorrow.  


Amy - about thread starters...

Hi Amy,

Congratulations on your success. I'm happy for you!

One "business" note... Please don't use day-thread starters for to-do lists. Just make the first message for the day a hello to people, then post your list as a comment to the welcome message. Thanks!
