The email worked!

on November 17, 2012

The email I sent myself included the following suggestions. Here are my ‘answers’!

Get your act together.

I am not an actor.

You are doing fine.

No, I’m not.

Make a great meal.

I made chicken noodle soup from scratch last night – will that do?

Go for a walk.

I walked around the house and around the yard twice.

Forget about your NanoWriMo failed attempt – get back to your half-written novella.

I think I may have trashed that novella.

Make a list of things you need to do and put it on the frig.

The list needs several frigs.

Recharge your camera and start taking photos again!

I am still searching for the recharging thingy.

Get the paper work sorted into categories and do NOT panic.

I have found all of the paperwork and placed it neatly into a box.

Try to conjure something to look forward to.

Fame and fortune.

Stop being so hard on yourself.

I’m not!

Stop sulking.


Practise smiling in front of the mirror.

This was a very good idea but I think I need one of my teeth capped.

Keep going.

I am, you idiot!


Is talking to yourself the first sign of madness?

    “Is talking to yourself the first sign of madness?”

    Of course not. It’s a sign you’re ready for a conversation with a nice, reasonable, intelligent person!

    Talking to yourself is ok, it’s when you start arguing with yourself, then it may be a problem..:)

  5. They say talking to yourself is normal but answering yourself…well….

  6. Robyn Lee says:

    I do talk to myself all day long! This makes a lot of sense to me!! xxooo

  7. If talking to yourself is a sign of madness, I’ll see you in the home.

  8. well done on the paperwork! that’s a nightmare I face…
    and I’m laughing at your tooth – sorry 🙂

    My thoughts? Talking to yourself is normal if you are/have been a teacher. You got all your paperwork into a box??? Honey, you’re doing great! Chicken soup from scratch? That is gourmet eating around here…

    You are going to be OK, you just can’t feel it right now. xo, ~Lynda
    PS: You are not an idiot.

    No… I do it all the time… just because I’m in an institution doesn’t make me mad…. Have a laugh Julie, it helps tremendously… and I do talk to myself all the time, and I’m not in a nut house, even though everyone around me thinks I should be…

  11. sbcallahan says:

    if so we are all “mad” lol… and that is my professional opinion!

  12. The first sign that you are coping 😀

    I believe it’s actually the first sign of sanity for most of us.

  14. I can relate to needing several fridges for the ‘to-do’ list. Never ending to-do lists. I have tried notes on fridges, notes in diaries, electronic reminders. None of these seem to help me in getting any of the things done. So when the first ‘D’ (doing) fails, I try the other 2 Ds ie: Delegate or Ditch. Last one seems to work best.

    Smiles for you today in keeping yourself in good spirits with your fantastic sense of humour.

  15. I think most of us talk to ourselves because we often need to say allowed the problem and need to hear our response…………..same goes for writing down our problem along with writing the answer it is what keeps us sane…….

    Hell, what’s wrong with talking to yourself? What’s wrong with arguing with yourself? HA, nothing. The real question is who really wins? Is this a left brain / right brain thing? Is it a Win / Win situation or a You Are F$cked No Matter What situation? HAHA…I take the latter, but then again, I’m your twin, so what do I know. I spend all my time arguing with myself! Missed you Jules…xoxo

    Whatever works is great! I love these notes to self… 😉

  18. no the second, blogging is the first!

    Was your novella a romance? How many pages (or words) were you aiming for? I think a novella sounds really do-able. I want to see one from you! No hurry. Just five pages a day.
