Right about constantly making adjustments!

I have a completely different "on my mind," but I forgot it.  Grrrrrrrr......my memory!

Hi, guys.....Our "Christmas" on Saturday was o.k.....but a little flat with deceased brother not there.  It was o.k. all in all.

We had a second Christmas party with turkey today, but I wasn't in the mood because of Saturday.
We had a Christmas party with turkey last week, with an Elvis impersonator after dinner.  I snuck off to buy some stuff at Home Depot.

Turns out the Elvis impersonator is the son of last year's Elvis impersonator!!

We have Christmas on the 15th due to some relatives' schedules, one relative's birthday is Christmas etc.

We do potluck.

We usually pick a name out of a hat the previous Christmas to give that person a surprise gift.

This year, we're donating money to The Toronto Wildlife Centre in memory of my brother who just passed away.  He was a "birder."

If he saw a bird, he could often tell if it's gender, and if it was a juvenile or an adult!  ;)

Hello Peter, I guess that we could all improve some, I know that I certainly could. But to me it's a matter of constantly making adjustments. It seems that every time I seem to get comfortable in one place,I end up taking a step or two backwards. Take Care, paul m

Eureka!  Haven't thought this out completely, but I softened my position on this.

A person could ask why it is taking ME so long to change -
-my being untidy
-putting things off etc....

Hi, Peace....Maybe it did....a bit.  This was ages ago - can't clearly remember.
 

BTW, my psychiatrist used to take my cigarette pack and throw it in the garbage in his office.... :-[

I quit on my own since then.....not exactly on my own - Nicoderm, support group at CAMH.

all he'd have to say to me is "you've talked about doing that since our initial appointments, please have it done by next appointment" and that was all I needed.

My ex psychiatrist used to tell me to leave a message on his phone once I've accomplished the task.

Forgot to mention, now I try (not always successful) to just do what needs to be done. Groceries? Go out as soon as store opens first day of sale type of thing. Exercise? First thing in the morning or as soon as I wake from a nap on goes the sweats and runners. If I don't force myself to do that I don't get anything done.
