Woke up with a headache this morning but still went to the Y and am now back and at my desk. I have found it increasingly harder to work from my desk lately and I'm not sure why. For a while I was going to Dunn Brothers, but lately have found the comfort of my recliner in my bedroom to lure me away from the desk. Today though I'm determined, among other things, to finish one particular project and to work on taxes.
Salinda should be returning today after an experiment (letting her "do school work" at her boyfriend's families home. It hasn't gone so well, so now she will be staying here until she is caught up. She promises she will not be crabby, but I'm preparing for the worst. I'm interested in discussing with her some of the events that happened while she was there -- trying to help her come to her own conclusions. I know that in the past me trying to point out things has never worked, so lately I just ask questions, listen, and hope that she comes to her own wise decisions.
Stomach and head still bothering me, not sure it will ever end. Maybe I"m just destined to spend 2009 not feeling well...
Next week begins a couple of very busy months for me. I have redone my speaking schedule and it even includes a link to my new brochure about the matching presentation I have developed. It also goes back to 2007 and I plan to take it back showing a history since I started speaking about adoption topics in 2001. I know it needs some work cosmetically, but I'm just trying to get everything in one spot for now.
As you can see, the next few weeks are going to be busy.
Also, if you live in MInnesota and have been thinking about adopting or having your homestudy updated, I'm doing a training here in Mankato March 26 and 27th that will fulfill the requirement for Minnesota's Adoption of Special Needs kids 16 hour training. It's not too late to sign up for that. ;-)
Today it is my intention to use my new shredder. Maybe that will motivate me to get organized.
I wish there was a way to shred other things, besides paper (no, not my children) -- things like anxiety, stress, worry, fatigue -- I wish they could just be fed into a shredder and destroyed.
Maybe prayer is like a paper shredder for pain....
