Goals for the Week

Not quite sure what to post this week.

I'm still in that "doing fairly well, but still feeling mighty stressed" place.

Last night I rode the bus home from a social event. There's a homeless shelter at the end of my bus route. Most of the people, you wouldn't even know that's where they were headed, if you didn't know it was there. But sometimes the people are pretty unkempt, and some are drunk. Last night I encountered 4 of those, plus it was pouring, and two of them had terrible coughs. A difficult ride.

Anyway, my goals:
Continue to ride the bus.
Go to the grocery store- for some reason I've been avoiding it lately.
Social events M,W,F- don't cancel any.
Fix flat on my bike, and ride to work one day if not too cold.

This list doesn't feel quite complete, but I'm not sure what else would go on it.

I guess another goal is to work actively (rather than simply reading) my Acceptance and Commitment Therapy for Anxiety book.


  1. Wow - well, I think your goals are impressive. Both the bus and the metro are nearly impossible for me, busses in particular. And I can't stand the grocery store. These look like a great set of goals, but cut yourself some slack if you can't do it all. I'm anxious just looking at that list :) Best wishes for a good week.

  2. Thanks for the comment. I took a look at your blog. It looks like we share some fears. Lucky us!

    Oddly enough, I've got a can of Libby's pumpkin, just like yours, that I've been eyeing suspiciously for weeks now. Although actually not in a botulism way, just a wow, I've had that a LONG time, should I really still eat it sort of way.
