I usually have Mondays off,
and on my days off,
I like to write a schedule for myself,
so I don't forget anything important.

Plan your work,
and work your plan,
as an old saying goes.

I'm running late,
so my wonderful bride, Tonia,
suggested I simply post my schedule.

It has a certain amount of humor,
which I will explain,
below the divider doodle.

Itzl AlertingAs you can see by Itzl's concerned look, this group is for us to check in at to let people know we are alive, doing OK, and not affected by such things as heat, blizzards, floods, wild fires, hurricanes, tornadoes, power outages, or other such things that could keep us off DKos. It's also so we can find other Kossacks nearby for in-person checks when other methods of communication fail - a buddy system. Members come here to check in. If you're not here, or anywhere else on DKos, and there are adverse conditions in your area (floods, heatwaves, hurricanes, etc.), we and your buddy are going to check up on you. If you are going to be away from your computer for a day or a week, let us know here.  We care!
We've split up the publishing duties, and this is our regular schedule:

Monday: BadKitties
Wednesday: Caedy
Thursday: art ah zen
Friday: FloridaSNMOM
Sunday: loggersbrat

That's the regular schedule,
but we welcome everyone in IAN
to do diaries for the group!  

Every member is an editor,
so anyone can take a turn,
when they have
something to say,
photos and music to share,
a cause to promote,
or news!

If you would like to fill in,
a. post your request in thread,
b. send FloridaSNMom a Kosmail,
with the date you want to write for.

If you need someone to fill in,

FloridaSNMom is here on and off through the day,
usually from around 9:30 or 10 am eastern
to around 11 pm eastern.

If you'd like to be part of the Itzl Alert Network,
please leave a comment asking to join,
or send us a message asking to join.

We'd love to have you.

The bigger our network,
the less likely someone will be stranded all alone.

here we are again,
another bigjac Tuesday.

To explain my list of chores,
you need to be aware of the principle of human relationships,
which is beyond the golden rule,
and is found in this book:
(The Five Love Languages)

In this book,
one of our favorite books,
we learn that each individual has one of five
big topics,
big ways of expressing love,
ways of truly loving,
that that individual prefers,
more than the others.

Sex is not on the list;
the list is about what folks do
before and after sex,
and on days with no sex.

I want to be clear about that,
because Tonia's one thing
from the five,
sounds sexual,
but it's not overtly sexual:

Tonia likes physical touch.

I get on a roll,
trying to do little chores,
and she calls out,
"rub me!"

That throws my focus off,
kills my rhythm.

I finally realized,
I need to schedule it in.

Hope you're doing well,
but even if not,
tell us about it.

We're here to listen.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

You can add a private note to this diary when hotlisting it:

Are you sure you want to remove this diary from Rescue?
