Today is a new day

and I'm going to view it as a new start. I have been up for almost an hour now. I woke around 5 am and had to go the bathroom so I just decided to stay up. I haven't done much since I've been up, but I am wide awake now. I am torn as to what to do. I want to work on my dissertation but I also want to walk/run. I only have until around noon, because Hubby will be home and we need to go to Costco. That is going to involve lunch, probably beer, so the afternoon is kind of shot. Then I have to walk the dogs, no excuses today. I think I just decided to work on my thesis. I will walk this afternoon with the dogs, and maybe I'll even do couch to 5k with Axl. But I need to get some work done on my dissertation. Okay, it's been decided.

I've kind of come to grips with the fact that while I'm writing this, I will not get to do all the things I want to do. I would love to spend an hour a day working out, but that just does not look like it will be in the cards every…

Seriously, when will I learn?????

On Monday, we had meditation and ended up being there from 1 pm to 4:30 pm. We did not eat lunch before hand so we were pretty darn hungry. On the way home we grabbed some dinner. We also stopped at the bakery and picked up cookies and pastries. Very, very hungry. We came home and ate. And ate. And ate. I ate all night long. Unfortunately much of it was junk food, pastries and cookies and such. Tuesday I got up and did not feel like making breakfast, so I decided to go to Starbucks. Latte and yogurt parfait. Luckily I had leftovers that I brought for lunch. Come home, eat some donut holes while I wait for dinner. Hmmm....Wednesday, still not wanting to cook breakfast, I head to Starbucks again. Latte, yogurt parfait, and pumpkin scone. Really???? Had some leftovers again for lunch and it was pretty good. Came home and was really tired. Really. Tired. Took a nap. Had dinner. Ate some pastries. Watched TV. Went to bed. Woke up yesterday, Thursday, and could not get moving. Decided t…

This was a good weekend

Yesterday, after breakfast, I sat down to get a start on my dissertation and it was like the flood gates opened. I wrote 6 pages and had 4 pages of references. I was hot. This morning I did some writing also, not as much as yesterday, but some. I'm on a roll. I think I can safely say, I'm on my way. I have started a dissertation blog here. I decided that I should track my journey for myself and maybe people in the future. I plan to try and write in it two or three times a week just to keep track of what I'm doing and when things occur.

In other news, there is no other news. Tomorrow we go to mediation with the idiot neighbors and I've spend most of the afternoon getting that stuff ready. Fun...I'm over this already. My goal is o get them to leave us alone. I'm tired of their childish behavior, their creating drama that doesn't exist, and their freaking nonsense. I'm over it. The good part about that is that I have the day off. That's kind of cool…
