  1. Well folks, I got part way through my day & then the energy gnomes took my get up n go & I was done for the day. Oh well, such is life. It will be better tomorrow.
  2. Would it help to have a physical list of your wins in a place where you can read them...like a bathroom mirror? I think you're doing really well with everything on your plate. *hugs*
  3. I'm currently reading Murder, Motherhood, & Miraculous Grace by Debra Moerke. A true account of what can happen in a foster care situation. I plan on reading intentionally as well. I don't want to set a book goal because I am a speed reader & will rush through a book to reach a numbered goal.
  4. Week two started out with a decent run. Then I got a cold which is pretty much over (thank God for a strong immune system) so I can get back on track. Today is off to a good start.
  5. Now with the above recap, I know where I need to improve. On to week two!
  6. So recap: Need to improve my bed by 11 goal I made my bed every day but one I met my exercise goal & missed 1 day of stretching I did not do well with recording workouts. ☹ I nailed my Bible goals! I did fairly well with habit tracking Missed 3 days out of 7 for journaling Started learning the new stitch for knitting Did meh on the 21 day challenge-need to improve For piano I did 3 out of 5 days
  7. I had no idea those two things were tied together. As for my let's get started remedy. I play a game. Supplies: 1. Paper, pen, & scissors 2. A timer 3. An index card 4. A cup I write down six things that I need to accomplish, I cut an index card into six sections, number them from one to six & put them in a cup. I pull a number out of the cup, set my timer for 15-30 minutes & go! You can set your timer for longer periods if you want. I usually don't go longer than 30 if I'm doing office work. Breaks are as follows: For 15 minute increments: 10 minute break after three tasks are done For 30 minute increments: Housework = 10 minute break Office work = 15 minute break This sometimes makes my 'workday' a bit longer than a normal persons', but I find it to be much more balanced. Hope this helps! I had done a productivity game thread a couple of challenges ago that also included longer sessions like 'Round 'Tuits. I started it to see if there was any interest in doing it as a community; but didn't get many takers so I didn't migrate the challenge over.
  8. Will update my other stats tomorrow evening. Sabbath awaits.
  9. Ahh...the evil trap of perfectionism (at least that's how it plays out for me). I have a method I use to overcome it...let me know if you're interested.
  10. Happy to oblige. For those who want to know: pres•ti•dig•i•ta•tion prĕs″tĭ-dĭj″ĭ-tā′shən ► n. Performance of or skill in performing magic or conjuring tricks with the hands; sleight of hand. n.

Legerdemain; sleight of hand; prestigiation; the performance of feats requiring dexterity and skill, particularly of the fingers; hence, juggling in general.
  11. So for my 21 Day challenge, I'm supposed to perform 3 random acts of kindness for 3 different people. The problem? I rarely am out & about except for the gym & groceries. I'm thinking that I should go on to the next day's challenge & spread out the RAK quest throughout the rest of the challenge. Thoughts?
  12. Night everyone. Sweet dreams!


  13. Moonlight Sonata is my fav. piece. I got a chuckle out of the modified "Are we there yet?" in your story. Keep up the good work!
  14. *hugs* I feel the weariness. Even as an introvert I'm feeling it. I do get out & about. I can't hug my friends when I see them & this makes me sad. On the other hand, I don't really get much time alone either. *sigh* It's really messed up.
  15. Bummer about the sleep issues. I know what that's like. Insomnia is the worst! Hoping you get it resolved soon.
