It has been a while it seems since I have worked on the thesis especially in the weekend. Maybe its the hormones from the pregnancy, but the thesis doesn't seem terribly important, and cleaning and organising the house does. And so does doing the family outing things, shopping, catching up with friends and all that stuff seem more important. I have enjoyed behaving like a semi-normal person, it feels so much more like a real weekend when I am not spending a lot of it doing the same computer and filing type work I do all week. But now I am starting to get a bit worried that this would be so much more comfortable than doing thesis, and it could just become too easy to let it slip away. The solution, as with most of my problems, lies with me. If I discipline myself back into working weekends, the thesis will get done. That's all it will take. It sounds a bloody sight easier than it looks from this side of self discipline.

We are leading an auction on Trademe for a cot. Hope we get it, and for a good price too! Then the only major purchase will be complete, and the sprog can arrive anytime, and still have a place to sleep.

I've been trying this new system where I do my outside of work stuff (gym) for 3 weeks and then take it easy the other week. Its pretty cool :)
