Welcome AbqSue - also hope you'll stay to keep us accountable (tomorrow 1st Feb, CA will open up a new message board - you can find it by going to the General Team Discussion Forum)

Well done CA - computers certainly didn't provide a paperless society, did they?

Thursday 31 January

- Weigh in and accountability to a Challenge I've been in this month
- Supervise garden service squad
- Take recycle stuff to school bins - and collect natural Spring water at the outlet provided by the brewery - they use this pure water which determined where brewing would be set up in the 1600s
- Take car (if it will start - and the driveway gate will open) to have immobiliser and starter motor checked out

Sheila - Success! It was the 1st class of the year, so it was fairly easy to have a new beginning. I told them that they didn't need to wait for me near the elevators when I go to the bathroom after class, and that I needed to listen to my music on the ride home because we're practicing a very difficult piece right now - which is true!

Hope that all goes well with the forthcoming operations for DD2 and especially that the pain subsides.

1) Private morning class (get heat turned on 2 hours beforehand).
2) Private afternoon class.
3) Do grades.
4) Do syllabi, but can always be done tomorrow.

CA - I can relate to No.4 - unless you incorporate the journey into the class time, that is, but that might be difficult to 'sell'. I have to shake loose (and I'm the host-family, not the teacher) when I want to go shopping, fetch VCR etc .... and with one of the current ones, when I go to the bathroom ...) Boundaries? What boundaries?

DD2 should come out of hospital today - Cholecystis - gall-bladder will have to come out - very inflamed, and Common Bile Duct, too - but 6-18 week waiting list - going to investigate private route - still in pain but controllable, anti-biotics helping

Wednesday 23 January

- Aqua - BodyWorx
- Drug Store for pensioners day discounts - supplements and OTC potions and pills
- Check up on progress with VCR repair ? collect
- Follow up GateMan for modification of driveway gates for security - to prevent them being lifted off the tracks - and, once again, why are the remote controls rebelling?

2) Take clothes to dry cleaners (if can get there between snow flurries).
√ 3) Private afternoon class (choose TED talk).
√4 ) Private evening class (somehow manage not to ride home with student on subway because it ends up being an extra half hour of teaching and I need the time to myself).

Oh, my! I hope I never got such "excitement" with my CouchSurfers! Definitely the mountain's fault.

1) Teach / teach - last classes at this university of the school year! Yay, mainly because it's so hard to get to in the snow right now.
2) Lunch with 2 graduating students.
3) Look over hard passages in Britten's War Requiem.
4) Rehearsal.

Thank you - hoping for some results today. Life's full of little challenges ... washing machine spewed water everywhere when I went out - luckily Brazilian student switched off and cleaned up all the water! Then Swiss student fell down mountain - did not use cable car - was brought home and I spent the afternoon in ER while they Xrayed head, back and neck - 3 stitches and several bruises, including ego - though it's the mountain's fault that she was wearing wrong shoes, didn't follow route markers, didn't take water, didn't let anyone know where she and one friend would be - etiquette on mountain is group of 4 - one stays with injured party, other two seek assistance. No school today apparently.

Monday 21 January

Thanks, CA, yes - it's awful but DD2 is now communicating herself - she was 'out of it' and her friends were keeping me up to date. Possibly passed a stone (ouch!), on morphine and anti-biotics, possible Pancreatitis - very worrying but in the top London National Health teaching Hospital where there is treatment at weekends - couldn't really ask for better care - they got her records from the previous hospital promptly, too

Sunday 20 January

- Neighbourhood Walk
- Collect microwave oven - successful repair apparently - they had the required spares in stock
- Keep in touch with DD2 and her BFF - DD2 is back in ER - severe stomach pain - morphine, Xrays, CT scan, blood tests - different hospital taking it all seriously and looking for cause rather than treating symptoms - Yay!

(DD2 must have been in a bad way as she wasn't communicating - last time she was posting pix on FB and commenting throughout - this time, silence. Info from BFF

Yeah - clothesline up and ready. It's kind of moot to shovel at this point, but I might do some anyway.

√ 1) Teach private class (heat up classroom beforehand).
√ 2) Teach private class.
3) Finish previous Top 4's [yesterday got caught up in last minute mailing - because of another officer's procrastination - about language teachers' meeting].

1) Rehang clothesline and wash sheets.
√ 2) Private class - heat up classroom beforehand and look for possible TED talk to use.
√ 3) Curves.
4) Respond to Self-Assessment forms and arrange alphabetically with class feedback forms for final class on the 29th.

Notice that shoveling is NOT on my list, but it may happen.

Monday, January 14th (my "extra" day)

1) Upload Sapporo University syllabi to campus website.
2) Order from Costco; put health food order away.
3) Apple lesson - backup iPhoto before going, then see if problem can be straightened out; also ask about "new" (used) iPod and how to get it synchronized.
4) Get Fuji University materials sorted and ready for tomorrow, including feedback forms; get clothes and backpack ready for tomorrow's classes.

EXTRA: Try to find hook that fell out so can hang clothesline back up.
Really should get 2013 schedule made and printed for private classes so can get copied tomorrow and have ready for them to look at this week - can I squeeze it in?

Yup, -12C. Where does your Energy Buddy live? In a warm place, I hope!

√ 1) Private class - put out envelopes for monthly payment.

√ 3) Fill out and mail university forms - tedious work so I've been procrastinating.
- 4) Find podcasts and articles for advanced level private classes.

Yes - at the tip of deepest darkest Africa, we have a very slow system and visitors don't understand that since much else is First World standards, and everything slows down or kicks one of us off - it's like wading through treacle

Wednesday 9 January

- Aqua - Bodyworx
- Drug Stores for Pensioners' discounts on Vitamins, Supplements, Health Foods, Toiletries
- Domestic trivia
- Research airfares to visit Energy Buddy in February

PS OMW I've just realised your local temperature is horrific! Thought you were saying the Top 4 List was 9th through 12th - ummm, No! -12C is just not funny

Sheila - Had a bit of a problem when my CouchSurfer was here. Didn't cost me extra, but sometimes if we were both logged in, I couldn't get an Internet connection. We worked it out, but I'm glad I don't have that to deal with anymore.

√ 1) Put futons away, vacuum room, and set up for class.
√ 2) Private class.
- 3) Brave the icy sidewalks to the p.o. to mail next year's contract with university.
√ 4) Curves.

iPad problem was a user error - the child didn't tell me that the iPad is WiFi and therefore cannot use a dongle. She'll have to use my WiFi - don't like that as some of them download movies and use video with Skype - which slows down the system and uses up my monthly allocation. She's here for 6 months - we have a deal though - if this happens, she will pay for extra bandwidth.

Tuesday 8 January - it's going to be a scorcher!

4) Continue transferring paperwork to computer.

Yes - until the middle of last year, I had a shelf full of paper copies (some in duplicate - filed differently in case I couldn't find the first one!) for a client - I also put the lot onto a CD for him to collect and, after a year of waiting, I had a couple of bonfires! I do enjoy that empty space ... and I haven't filled it even now

Friday 4 January

Sheila - You're right that iCloud doesn't work for MS Word documents and the like. It *does* keep my Address Book (most important), Calendar, and Mail automatically on my laptop, iPod, and iPad. Doesn't do that for iPhoto (2nd most important), which I keep backed up on an external hard drive and DropBox. My teaching materials (current ones) are already paperless, on 2 computers and a USB stick as well as my teaching website. The stuff I'm planning to put on computer are materials I haven't used in years and/or have thousands of paper duplicates of, so their loss wouldn't be huge, but they *will* be backed up. That's more than I expected to write, but I don't want my friend over in South Africa worrying about this. emoticon

√ 1) Curves
2) Everything else I haven't gotten to during the holidays. Hah!

CA - Before you go paperless, I hope you keep a copy - external hard drive, Cloud, whichever or both - in case of fire, theft, loss, crash - oh, yeah DD2 tells me Apple doesn't do those things - but she did leave her iPhone in a taxi! (The taxi company returned it, by the way, damaged - from Paris to London - awesome)

Thursday 3 January

Wait a minute - it's raining!! Nothing was forecast - ah, but there's Cricket for 5 days. That explains it - rain stops play :(

- Neighbourhood walk - sometime later when the rain stops
- Supervise Garden Services squad - hope they've got their wellies
- Contact Gym re excessive amount taken from my bank account - I thought we'd got this sorted!
- Meet up with a gym friend for coffee or make a plan for tomorrow or Saturday

√ 1) Get addresses updated from New Year's cards.
2) Lots of vacuuming.
3) Start on going through stack of educational materials, checking to see what's on my computer, updating what is, then recycling the paper. Going paperless!
4) Space for serendipitous happenings!

√ 2) Get accounting up to date.
√ 3) Put away Christmas decorations.
√ 4) Allow for a bit of serendipity.

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!
