I went to church today to attend a couple "mini" meetings on how to get involved in the church more. I'm confident it will make me feel better physically and emotionally to be more involved. And I know there's a great side effect: getting to k... Read more

Time to Re-adjust Schedule Again

Monday, January 24, 2011      3 comments

I get to re-create a schedule today. My long-term job ended a week ago, causing the first change in my schedule. Then I worked the NAIAS last week, and that REALLY changed my schedule. Lots of long hours made me not want to do much when I got... Read more

What Week Off?

Wednesday, January 19, 2011      3 comments

I had such high hopes of accomplishing so much of my to-do list this first week of not having a job. It doesn't seem to be working yet. I've scratched off a couple things, but added more than I have scratched off. Why is that?... Read more

A Day Off!
