I have been getting some things done that I have been putting off, but not as many as I'd like. I am finding that some things are taking longer than anticipated. At other times, life just gets in the way.
I am trying to talk my brother in participating in an annual block sale that his street has every September. I would love to take some of the stuff I have collected here that I don't use any more and see if I can sell them. What's left over, I know I can take right to the Salvation Army and get a receipt that I can use as a write-off on my taxes. I know this process will take longer than I anticipate, however. The sooner I can get a commitment from my brother, or at least a date that I can plan to set up my stuff at his house, the easier it will be for me to get ready.
It's September already. I've been threatening to re-evaluate and re-do my goals for all of August. I haven't done this yet. I've got general ideas, but nothing concrete and written down. This will probably be an hour or two project. If I break it up into chunks, it shouldn't be too bad.
The reason for putting off these things and other projects that I want to do is my job situation. It takes me quite a bit of time every day looking for jobs and trying to find new Avon customers in the meantime. I'm definitely at the panic mode on this - of course I need money coming in to pay my bills and be able to stay where I am. I have no clue what I will do if I don't have any money coming in soon. I just keep plugging along and saying a little prayer every day. I know that God's answer sometimes is "wait", but I'm really running out of time.
