CA - I felt it was too easy to give up and return home from Europe - and was on my way around the World - just 15 months in Cape Town - but I hit the brakes, got married and planted roots!

Wednesday 31 October

- Aqua
- BodyWorx
- Blitz clean house - getting visitors
- Dinner for current, and 2 returning students - Swiss guys who were here last year - one now works for an airline and is on stop-over

Sheila - At least you chose an English-speaking country! I'm not sure how long I've been in Japan (even though I get asked ALL the time) - maybe about 25 years.

1) Private lesson (have computer ready).
2) Curves [either between or after classes].
3) Private class - Halloween "ears" and candy.
4) Chop vegetables for stir fry.

Sheila - Well, taking it easy meant spending hours at the computer recovering documents. But at least I didn't have to rush off somewhere as usual.

√ 1) Teach / teach.
√ 2) Lesson at Apple store.
√ 3) Curves.
4) Get backpack, Halloween candy and hats ready for Tuesday's classes (buy grapes and liver on way home for Halloween haunted house).

- Drop off recycling at school bins
- An hour or so of weeding the lawn - nothing too strenuous though
- Prep bedroom for new student arrival

Sheila - That kind of incompetence is simply uncalled for! I'm getting so totally spoiled here in Japan, where the staff would be terribly embarrassed if even one of those things happened and go out of their way to make it right.

1) Private lesson (have Mockingbird computer page open).
2) Lesson at Apple store.
3) Private classes aft. and eve.
4) If time, email private retirement company about plans for lifetime annuity.

DD2 returned to hospital for her Gastroscopy - would you believe it, they had lost all reference to an appointment, didn't have her file, can't get any industrial strength painkillers - has to see her own GP who can't see her for a week! UK NHS - I thought people were exaggerating when I read how bad they are - she's not fit to be chasing non-existing appointments, losing pay etc

Tuesday 23 October

- Birthday greetings to be sent to a cousin-in-law (very special) and a gym buddy
- Aqua aerobics
- Send Mystery Diner report to friend/neighbour for adds and omits
- Prepare student room and bathroom - moving Swiss student as incoming Italian will stay for 4 months and I don't want to give up my bathroom for that long!

Baby girl DD2 (32!) has gone home for the weekend - no MRI (MRCP) - she had a second ultrasound instead with doppler - having a gastroscopy on Monday - wouldn't it have saved all this aggro if they'd done that on Tuesday when admitted and she told them about her ulcer? Grr. Altho happy to be home, she admits to feeling very ill

Saturday 20 October

- Boxing
- Fuse Ball
- Rugby on TV - semi-finals of Provincial Cup - Currie Cup
- Hopefully neighbour/friend/client will come over for TV and Dinner - it's Norwegian salmon tonight :)

MRI (MRCP) today to rule out other stuff - she's throwing her toys and wanting to go home since nothing is happening, they keep getting her food so wrong that she hasn't eaten since Monday, they dehydrated her and now say her liver function is abnormal. I'd throw my toys too!

Friday 19 October

- Aqua
- BodyWorx
- Supermarket
- It's raining so I can't do the weeds so I guess I'll have to do some of the Admin :(

Thanks CA - chest pain, very low heart rate (could be from great fitness levels) and ulcer pain - ultrasound ruled out gallstones - particularly worrying as I can't hug her from 6000miles away :(

Thursday 18 October

- Weeding lawn - never ending story
- Dance lesson - only 2.5hours to go and the contract is finished
- Start writing up my Mystery Diner report
- Try to finish tax for friend/client

Staying close to home most of the time so I can stay in touch although BB goes everywhere with me .. but you know what I mean - keeping calm (or trying to!)

Shorten your List.

Every day make a "to-do list." A Microsoft CEO shared with his employees his secret to success. He said every day he'd make a to-do list topped with 4 things that he REALLY wanted to get done. Then he'd throw away the rest of the list. If Microsoft's CEO can accomplish only 4 things in a day, what makes you any different? Start prioritizing yourself and you'll get the most important things done. The rest can wait til another day to be in the top 4.

On this forum, feel free to post your "top 4" and how you are progressing. Let's get the most out of our days and start prioritizing the things we need to get done most!
