Saturday, 28 February 2009. The kitchen stool @ 0640
Waiting for the kettle to boil. Alone as usual. After shitting. I often start the day in a shitting humour.
I had a poor night’s sleep - kept awake by a bloated tummy. I ate too much, too much fatty foods - crisps, cheese, icecream - I drank too much red wine, good stuff - and not half enough water.
I must email Jan again & tell her I got back the calender, returned to sender, and I wonder if she got the book I sent her.
I have so much to do. I will focus on finishing things off.
No more new things.
Substitute for Allan Cuthbert [making a cup of tea]
All the Barry’s tea is almost gone. Actually it was Supervalu tea…
I’m doing an awful lot. I must be careful.
When I know I’m stretched, what do I do?
My Relapse Prevention Plan: that’s the most important thing I need to finish off
- more than the pitch to publishers
- more than Irish blogging
More than all.
I’ll work on it today - Saturday. I’ll send Garry the photos
And I went to bed too late. I sat there at the laptop, killing time when I could have been in bed.
I need to earn money. I need to face up to Bord Gais, and my car, and my teeth , and the holiday…
Lists, lists, lists.
I have a full life.
What am I not doing? Answer: the Gym.
I’ve had a re-think and decided to drop the Alphabet Marathon idea. I’ll contact him and tell him…
If you send me material for the WWW.ie - Writing from Cork, I’ll put it up. But I won’t write content…
I’ll withdraw from as many things as I can while I am in control of it.
I’ll not wait until I fall over and have withdrawal forced on me.
Withdraw: (1) Alphabet Marathon (2) IMA
Let it go…
Let it be…
Get a grip on my office - so that again, if anything were to happen to me, my affairs would be in order.
Go back to basics:
(1) the daily page(s)
(2) daily exercise daily gym
(3) sleep well
(4) earn money
(6) Tidy up.
