    Week 2-Getting Close to Your Center/Focus
    What will it take to get as close to your focus as you can. Using the next round next to the bull's eye.

    My center of focus right now is my 3 youngest boys. I believe that TIME is both my enemy and friend in getting as close to them as possible.

    I was focused on chores. They have been completed. Therefore I have nothing I need to do to get close to my focus. It is FINI.

    I look forward to Fridays as that is the day my BFF and I talk on the phone. We have been doing this for a few years now, since we live in different states, and long distance calls are no longer an issue as we both have no cost for long distance. We will talk an hour or so on Fridays and I miss her so much. Currently we are in process of planning a get a way.. the 4 of us.. us and our hubbys for the spring!

    As I mentioned in the chat, I've been displaced at work. My office is now a conference room & I'm sitting in a cubicle. Retirement can not come soon enough. Anyway, now I've got to be nice to people since we are sitting just about on top of each other. :(

    I have to be operated catarct and although all my entourage says that it is nothing! I am still angry. My only entertainment is my computer so I can not imagine without it.

    je dois me faire opérer de la cataracte et bien que tout mon entourage dit que ce n'est rien ! j'angoisse quand meme. Mon seul divertissement est mon ordinateur donc je ne m'imagine pas sans

    My second circle wound up being a mix of things to accomplish and/or overcome to get more AJ happening in my life.. Loving the journaling I'm getting done on my personal copy of this page (it will get hidden by following layers, yes indeed lol).
