So I finally started one of the online courses.  I also revised my cover letter, taking a new approach with a little more self-disclosure.  I need to start doing more with Excel to brush up my skills but I test better with Excel than I do Word, for some peculiar reason.  My desk still needs attention.  But hey!  The basket is cleaned out.  It is now a "magazine/catalog" basket.

Give or take, I did well this week.  We had the workshop conference call, very brief but relatively productive.  The board conference call was less productive but I typed up the notes, etc.  I've already begun building the March newsletter with the intention of beginning the April issue immediately afterward.

Yeah.  Let's move on.

Reiki meditation 5x per week
Strength training 3x per week
Cardio 3x per week
Yoga daily (su-mo-tu-)
Update well-being blog twice
Update personal blog twice
Update body blog daily
Study Italian 3x (su)
Write February newsletter
Post movie & tv reviews for February
Post Reiki wrap-up for February

I think I did more than I recorded but I am not quite in the habit of keeping track of these things.  Not sure what it's going to take to make this happen but I keep saying I will do it.  For instance, I know I did Italian at least twice and I updated the body blog almost daily.  I also did yoga more often than listed and I did cardio .  . . twice?  I think.  I forget.  I really need to update this list at the end of the day.  Perhaps I should just commit to doing it after dinner or something . . . I dunno.

Saturday Morning walk with Kanika (canceled due to rain)
Schedule new game day
Call Love

I usually call Love on Saturday but I swear yesterday didn't feel like Saturday and I couldn't  get into the rhythm of the day for some strange reason.  Of course, she didn't call me either.  Anyway, it's a new week.  Moving along . . . 

The Self-Compassion Diet
Anne’s House of Dreams
Stories of Illness and Healing: Women Write Their Bodies

I am absolutely committed to reading the first book on this list starting today.  I had started it before but set it aside when I hurt my back.  I feel better now so now is the time to renew my intention.  Look for more books to be added to this list today.

Write Reviews
Moving On
Peace and Plenty chapter 3
Big Girl Small
Transfer some reviews to amazon

Never a dull moment but at least I get most of the review writing done.  I think that has to do with my realizing that if I wait too long I won't remember certain details and then will write a less than relevant review.  

And I realize that my weekly to-do list is obviously too much because I never complete it by the end of the week.  Still, I'd rather have too much on the list than too little, I suppose.  This could be a reason why I am never bored.  How can anyone ever be bored when there's  so much to do and to experience?  It baffles me.


  1. Now Im gonna add one more task to your to do list. Since you mentioned that piece you wrote, Id like you to upload it so I can read it lol

  2. I'd need to find it and probably tweak it a bit (because I can never reread my writing without changing something) but it's not an impossibility.

    You'll notice that right now the "to do list" block to the left is blank. I'm working on my list now. I'll add "find the piece" to the list and who knows . . .

  3. .....and I who thought I had too much to do .... you have definitely won!

    Very nice blog!!

  4. Yay! I win. I didn't even know there was a competition. Oh boy!

    And thank you. The look is likely to change once our daffodils come into bloom so hopefully you like the content and not the purple. (Albeit, purple is my favorite color so it's likely to be back sooner rather than later.)
