Even hotter today than yesterday, and going to continue. emoticon

√ 1) Check with cleaning woman about extra air conditioner that she has said she'll give me - although the installation might be fairly expensive.
√ 2) Lesson at Apple store (air-conditioned - YAY!).
√ 3) Private lesson (not air-conditioned - boo).
√ 4) Rehearsal (air-conditioned - YAY!).

[Hope that this is the last of the really hot days. Not going to push myself too much because had difficult sleeping since it never got really cool.]

-1) Update Numbers and Excel accounts of expenses. [too hot to think]
√ 2) Finish typing info about Nakajima Park (page on my website that gets the most hits) and choose the best photos. [Not nearly finished but it's going to be a great website!]
√ 3) Go over Mahler at least once and maybe memorize a couple more lines.

CA - house just needs some TLC and maintenance that I've neglected and now I am motivated to work thru the job list faster than planned. Had planned one task per month - knocking them off quickly now!

Disaster averted last night - thought I had taken Rump Steak out of the freezer - turned out to be Goulash - so we had Omlettes with veg on the side - since I didn't make a fuss, everyone ate as if it was my intention :)

Sunday 29 August

- Laze around reading sportsman's autobiography
- Go to Sports Store to look for Scuba accessories
- Find all the Teddy Bears and soft toys - stuff them into washing machine ready to go to "disadvantaged children" somewhere - my 33yr old DS gave permission to deal with his toys :))
- Continue decluttering and resting aching muscles

Aspenhugger - Sure hope you're feeling better soon, but it's good you're not pushing yourself too hard.
Sheila - Sorry to hear about the house problems, and rainy weather on top of it all!

- 1) Wash towels. [But washed other clothes.]
√ 2) Sort other clothes.
√ 3) Think about filling out application to be a checker and question maker for the STEP test. [Thought about it!]
√ 4) Do more paper decluttering. [It's taking time but I'm succeeding in sorting through TEN YEARS' worth of accumulated printed material.]

Have had sporadic Internet connection so wasn't able to make list for yesterday but didn't do much besides rehearsal.

1) Change and wash sheets (which will make the cats happy).
2) Fill out form to get itemized invoice for time I was in Europe and send it to Softbank.
3) Do last couple chapters in grammar book before tomorrow's private lesson.
4) Get some groceries - especially fruit and cat food.

Sheila - I'm sure you won't have the same problem with “roaming.” On my cell phone, even though I have had roaming on in the past, I only paid when I actually made a call (2-3 minutes). On my iPad, apparently it was “roaming” the entire time, even when I was just listening to music. I'm still trying to get it straightened out.

√ 1) Wash clothes.
2) Do more paper decluttering.
3) Highlight music for Lobby Concert, and study Mahler for tomorrow's rehearsal.
4) Finish reading any email from this week and discard or file.

OUCH CA - that's horrifying!
hoping my roaming wasnt like that!! I set my BlackBerry NOT to push emails - only get texts and calls and able to send texts. Also closed off SP notices so my computer time would be reduced! And paid R500 into the account before I went so that I wouldn't get such a shock

More decluttering and prepping for Brazilian student arrival
Catch up with friends

Maybe, just maybe, if SP is working properly put up a blog and pix of Scuba :)

Didn't get much accomplished Thursday except for teaching 2 classes because still recovering from shock of about $1,000 because I had “roaming” turned on for my iPad while I was overseas - even though I wasn't able to use the Internet and barely got any Mail.

√ 1) Go to bank to get new bank card. [Simple since now is done all by machine - 3 minutes instead of 15-20.]
√ 2) Go to Apple store to learn more about “roaming” policy. [The person I talked to was very kind and sympathetic, and also astounded at my bill since I hadn't been able to access Maps, the Internet, iTunes, and Mail most of the time.]
- 3) Highlight music and start to learn Mahler (for Sunday's rehearsal). [GOT to do this on Saturday!]
√ 4) Do more paper decluttering. [Included adding recipes, from scraps of paper I've had, to SparkPeople - making it much more easily accessible.]

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!
