pro's CI - 9:50pm

I ate dinner and watched a movie.

I wish someone else would clean this place up. It's a disaster area, and I really don't feel like dealing with it. :(

Procrastination is the grave in which opportunity is buried.

maybe tomorrow

Maybe I'll clean up this mess tomorrow. It's after 10pm, and I'm tired from hanging that huge mirror. I'll have more energy in the morning.

I think I'll just put away the food, brush my teeth, and get into bed.

pro's CI - 7pm

Another dull thread starter. :( I'll just live with it, rather than taking the time to update it.

I just hung a large, heavy mirror in the bathroom. It took several hours because of all the measuring I had to do - and because there isn't a single 90-degree angle in this very old building. I had a spot where I wanted to put it that was almost exactly the same size as the mirror, so it had to be right. It was a huge PITA, but it's done. On the down side, I trashed my apartment in the process. I pulled tools out of the closet looking for things and threw them all over the floor, etc. I'm too tired to clean up right now, but it's in my near future!

Right now I think I'll have some dinner. I'm happy it's a long weekend!!

CI for Lark @ 9:00am

Hi eveyone. I need to finish a project today which should have been done a couple of days earlier. I have a bill to be paid before five, so finishing the project, contacting the client, and hoping they'll come and go, and me going to pay the bill on time...What a stupid rush. I still do it--but not nearly as bad.

To do:
 morning routine
 spiritual time
 finish job (it's THAT simple)
 pay bill
 do one area of living room floor
 thin out pile on kitchen table
 check in later

Best Wishes!

Best wishes on completing your tasks today. I know what you mean about slipping back into bad habits and then having to rush! It's so easy to do. I still really struggle with leaving the house to get to where I need to go on time. Like you, I'm doing better, but I'm not sure if it will ever be easy or if I will always have to consciously think about it. We'll see..

Sending cheer to rexroth

Just wanted to say thank you again for inspiring me. I appreciate your commitment to Higher Power and right principles.  I have found motivation to tackle a lot of difficult things ... from reading your daily bookends.  I realize you will be gone for a few months, so I wanted to wish you well on your journey.  I have faith that H.P. will guide you on whatever path is before you.    I wil imagine you mentally "sending up in prayer" your daily bookends -- although you might be away from the computer, I know you'll still be bookending directly to H.P.

I will continue working on my legal and financial paperwork.  And every time I bookend about completing some aspect of a difficult task, I will send good thoughts to you and to all people who are struggling with such tasks.

Best Wishes,

Thanks for good cheer movingalong. I feel very happy posting on this board. It works for me and it's free to all.

Today I woke feeling uncomfortable in that I was worrying about some legal work that I though I might need to do before I left. I had not checked before and it would have been in my interests to have done so. When I checked this morning I found that I needed to file papers at court before the 10 October. Now it is possible that I had till next April but if I did it early it was one less thing to worry about. I am due back on 3/4 October so I would have had time when I got back but I could not find any reason not to do it now. So today I filed the papers and also wrote to the other side with a bundle of papers which they say the don't have. It's been a lot of work and I've just finshed. This is recovery for me. I've been putting off doing this work for five and a half years and it took me just a few hours today.
