"I've got all day" syndrome - the situation that arises when you have a whole day to get things done but end up frittering it away because, after all, you've got all day!
I have the day free tomorrow, except for a prayer meeting in the evening, and I want it to be a productive one. I'm going to make a list before bed and a time plan, with plenty of breaks and fun stuff to keep things flowing. Will let y'all know how it goes.
This is a habit thing, too - or maybe better to say it's a breaking-the-procrastination habit thing.
P.S. Thanks for all the sympathy on my blog yesterday - one thing I'll miss is that visits to the gym were the greatest way to make productive use of my "extra" time in the city. I sometimes have early morning lessons and then nothing till evening with hours in between. Will be planning for some creative, active, no cost ways to spend that time in the future.

Today was kind of a sad day. It was my last trip to my gym. I've cancelled my membership, mostly for financial reasons. I believe I will either be back when I get my tuition bills paid, or that the Lord has an even better plan.
It was ironic in a way because today was the first time in ages that I've seen someone I know at the gym. If there's anything at all that I've missed there, it's making casual friends like we tend to do at the gym in the US. People are pretty focused - come in, work out, and leave. I seldom even see the same people there! Today, however, I saw a former colleague who I hadn't seen in a couple of years. I actually recommended the place to her a long time ago. We didn't have much time to catch up but I won't be seeing her there again --- at least for awhile!
In the meantime, I'll be working out at home indoors and continuing with runs/walk/polewalks outdoors as the weather permits. I've got all I need - mat, dumbbells, stretchie bands, DVDs, and the right clothes for outdoor winter exercise...and of course Spark People!

As I mentioned, yesterday, getting to bed at a more reasonable hour is another habit I'm working on . Doesn't there always seems to be just one more dish to wash, one more shirt to iron, one more email to read and respond to, one more blog post to write...?
....ummm....OH YEAH! That blog post! So here I am, ten minutes past the time I was aiming for. GOOD NIGHT!
