Today was an exercise in progress, for even though I was very tired, I managed to get a lot of stuff done. I came up to Mandeville for an eye exam, which I managed to get despite some insurance snafus, and of course my prescription hasn’t changed. Not a surprise, that, but I needed an update so I could get more contacts. That’s why you’ve seen me in glasses a lot lately. Ugh.
I finally entered a ton of family info into my various personal information management software/devices, so now I have all of that stuff at my fingertips in digital form should I need it.
I was also going to get some starched and pressed dress shirts I left here over winter break, but alas they were apparently confused with my father’s and are now in Michigan. I await their return so that I once more have a complete dress wardrobe. *sigh*
Anyway, back to progress. I’ve really been blowing through the stuff I have to do lately, and am keeping pretty strictly to my implementation of the Getting Things Done (GTD) methodology. This results in my having a greater peace of mind and being able to relax about all the stuff I have to do. It’s not all bouncing around in my head.
I haven’t had more than a day’s worth of emails in my inbox in a month. They all get handled appropriately and immediately.
Anyway, lots to do again tomorrow — have to grocery shop for Monday’s lab meeting, including buying a king cake. I had one measly piece of king cake after the lab meeting, and I got the baby, which makes it my turn. That’s what I get for eating refined sugar. I think I’ll probably go to whole foods for that. David was saying something about maybe playing Warcraft III tomorrow, but I’m leanining toward finishing my mechanics homework (double blargh), washing my sheets, and the aforementioned grocery spelunking. Maybe I should play some Warcraft. Haven’t in a while. I guess it all depends on how early I can get my ass out of Mandeville and back to the Big Easy.
Oh, and hey, drop me a line if you know of any particulary good camping spots within, say, a four hour drive of NOLA. ttfn
