Now I've Done It
Friday, October 04, 2013      11 comments

It's official - I am overbooked and overstressed! I had another long day yesterday where I didn't accomplish anything but add to my stress. I got to a meeting to realize that I didn't have all the paperwork I needed. I didn't remember seeing ... Read more
A Few Steps Backwards
Wednesday, October 02, 2013      6 comments

I have been working on my schedule (or lack of) all year now. I had felt that I was making progress in September. I would pick only a few things to try to accomplish each day and I was doing okay at getting them done. Then, last week, m... Read more

Friday, September 27, 2013      7 comments

At the end of August, I remember thinking that I hoped September would be less boring than August. There's the old saying "Be careful what you wish for". Right now, I would love to have a half a day to be bored. I started a couple class... Read more

I got my Spark Tracker Friday afternoon. Granted, yesterday was spent at a 3-hour class, 3.5 hours in the car, and doing homework mostly. And today was a day spent at church, at a baseball game, at a birthday party and doing paperwork for chur... Read more

It's So Easy to Get Out of Habits
Wednesday, September 18, 2013      13 comments

I started a couple classes. It dawned on me last night that I have homework to do and get it done soon. I have gotten out of the habit of doing a little bit each day. And I know better - so it's time to get on the ball on this one. I'm s... Read more

My daughter and I were texting each other this morning. Someone in my past who I had a relationship with is trying to re-enter my life. He was very controlling during our relationship and that was a major point in my decision not to continue i... Read more
Long Week
Saturday, September 14, 2013      7 comments

It's been a long and busy week. When I say busy, I mean that I've started my days at 6-6:30 and was still doing things 9-10 at night. I didn't get most of the things done this week that I intended to do. These things are still on my list as t... Read more

Monday, September 02, 2013      11 comments

If it feels wrong, don't do it. Say "exactly" what you mean. Don't be a people pleaser. Trust your instincts. Never speak bad about yourself. Don't be afraid to say "no". Don't be afraid to say "yes". Be kind to yourself. Let go ... Read more
Domino Effect
Saturday, August 31, 2013      6 comments

It seems that there is something to the Domino Effect - when one thing goes wrong, something usually goes wrong after that. I don't really want to admit it, but I sure feel like this is what happened the last couple of days. I usually can roll... Read more

I had a bad day yesterday. I dealt with unexpected problems all afternoon. I didn't get anything done that I originally set out to do. The evening brought up some questions about how my life and my relationships are going right now. Do I wan... Read more
