I hope your writing went well today!

Julie's 9:30 CI; 12:00 CI; 12:15 am

12:15 Today went much better. I got through some important things on my list. I'll check in again tomorrow morning.

I feel like I have not been accomplishing much over the last few days. The start of a new semester  is always a little overwhelming because it means a total change of focus and schedule. Part of the problem is my job is veryunstructured and allows me a lot of flexibility. That is a very positive thing but also very conducive to procrastination. I just don't want to fall back into all my bad habits because I have worked so hard and have been doing better over the last couple of months. So I am going to try to get back on track today. I seem to have been posting the same list for several days but here it its again:

Morning routine
Walk Zoe
Finalize clinical schedule
Email assignments to group #2
Email assignments to group #3
Take copy of AG to send out to off-campus site-Call site Friday
Fax/email schedules to clinical sites
Unpack suitcase
2 loads of laundry
Pick up office-15 minutes
Email Linda again about assessment
Enter info in Gradebook
Add quizes to Utest-week one is on
Pick up food for Larry at vet
Download new pics to computer if I have time
Fill out expense report for trip
Schedule senior pictures-Friday AM
Get letter to Jan-Friday AM
Practice Portugese-15 minutes
Hang picture at office at work

8:30am CI for Lark

I don't have a gameplan for today, but if I'm making progress on any of the things which need addressed around here, it'll be okay. Yesterday and Tuesday weren't bad, so I'm staying a bit on the "informal" side today. There's still alot of general cleaning which can be done, and alot to do for work. I'll check in at lunch or coffee break, and go from there. Be well everyone.

Tiler(s) arrived just after 1.00pm which I suppose is logically after 12.00. They are busy and I hate other people being in my flat which is a pity as they would find it hard to retile from the outside.

I'm finding it hard to get on with stuff.


temporary inconvenience, major convenience

The roads repair crews over here often put that sign up during times when they have traffic all snarled and people are impatient. You may want to repeat that phrase to yourself while the people are working on the tile. Take care friend.

Thanks Lark and they've finished and gone. They took less than an hour. They've done a decent job and cleaned up after them. I've been waiting for, I think, ten months for this work to be done. I'm exhausted and stressed out. So I'm resting and drinking tea. I need to clean up a bit more and put kitchen stuff back and there is no hurry.

I felt so tired I went to bed. I'm just up briefly to post this.
Have done a little tidying.
