Sleep is good

I think jimbo used that post title a while back, but let me just say that sleeping in 30 minutes longer was the greatest thing that ever happened to me. I accomplished a ton of stuff today. I didn't get to all the fun stuff on my list, but I got to quite a bit. And I got the icky stuff out of the way, so I can do all the fun stuff tomorrow. Yay! We're also having a new year's party tomorrow.

I managed to do my workout this evening, so I'm still good with the exercise resolution. I probably won't walk tomorrow either as it's supposed to be raining and sleeting, so I'll do the same workout tomorrow. They're building a new exercise place a block away so I'm thinking I'll check that out as a good alternative to walking.

Yesterday and today, I spent some time collecting goodies for workshops and web resources. I furled them here, though I haven't organized or analyzed anything yet (tomorrow). I played with Palm applications yesterday and found some good ones, including a shopping list and a to do list. I got the shopping list from 43 folders. The to do list (To Do Plus) I just bumped into. I still jot things down as they come in. Today I realized that something that would be great was if I could create a to-do out of an e-mail, say drag the e-mail over to a to-do list and it would generate a to-do. There's probably something out there that does that, but I haven't seen it yet. It needs to be integrated with my palm too.

The writing is not going so well. I had my breakthrough but I need a good stretch of 4 or 5 hours to implement it. I have that stretch planned for Saturday. I don't really want to start on it until then. So I think I can forgive myself for now. I really want to finish this whole novel now because I've started on another book, but I can't really go at it full force until I finish the current one. Writing bits and pieces at night just doesn't cut it for me. It's fine for blogging, but not for sustaining a complex thought. You've all witnessed the problems with my writing at night here. :)
