I’ve decided on a new way to make priorities. One thing a day I complete, I put in a different place on my daily schedule. I’m not to work on it until I complete all the things I haven’t marked as such done. Hopefully this will mean that those things I want to do, but rarely make time to do – at least once every two months I’ll spend an evening working on it. Is it perfect? Do I expect to break it? No and yes, but it’s worth a try. Today I haven’t been following it well as I’ve had more time on my lunch to do things than I could do at work so I’m grabbing those things, but at least I won’t be concerned with them when I get home and I can feel semi accomplished.
This weekend I’m going down to the Simply Youth Ministry Conference. I’ll let you know how that goes. It’s sponsored by a different group than the ones I’ve been to before, so I’ll let you know how it compares. It’s only down in Louisville, which I like Nashville and St. Louis better I think, but this will give us the feeling of being “away” with half the travel. I have never been able to relax and enjoy myself in Cincinnati because I’m only focused on what I need to be getting done at home.
I registered for Laurapalooza 2012!!!! Yeah!!!! This time the internet is supposed to be working better so I will be better able to tell you what is happening. I really enjoyed the blogging last time. I’m still trying to turn it into a speech and rejoin Toastmasters. Yeah, that’s one of those things that I always push off so if I can work on it one evening I’ll probably have all the hard work done and just have to set aside the time to find a club and when they meet.

End of the Week

It’s Tuesday.
The past week and a half have been crazy, but today seems a little like a day to catch up.

This is why I don’t get to blog to much. I wrote this, then had to do other things and it’s now Friday.

I’ve been helping the low-income prepare taxes for the last month. I really want to point out to them how to make changes so that they aren’t low income. Plan ahead. Don’t have more kids than you can support on your own. Your job prospects might be better with some dental work. That sounds shallow, but it’s not. It’s like the key things I learned to be successful in life; they never learned so it just perpetuates, and I want to yank them out of it. I, also, want to tell some people that they can’t be their kids sole support if they have W2s totaling less than $500 for the year. It’s just not possible. But I want to think like an auditor, and there I’m not.

Are you doing anything this weekend? Besides the taxes and youth group, I have a girls night out with the church. Also, I need to start packing for next weekend.

Random Update

Here's a blog I filmed on Thursday, but haven't had a chance to post. Just a few random things/comments.
Hope you are having a good weekend!
