How on earth do we all get ourselves into situations where we have more to do than we can possibly fit into our schedule? I'm not the only one. Most of my friends are struggling to juggle activities and responsibilities for church, community service, business and friends.
I am leaving tomorrow for a Juice Plus conference in Long Beach CA and I have no idea how I am going to accomplish all the necessary tasks before I get on that plane.
The Central Florida Dragon Boat Festival is coming up soon and I still have to sign a contract for the catering, send invitations to our VIP guests such as elected officials and write checks to pay for the catering. These are task to be completed today!! First of all the invitations have not been printed yet, I still need to purchase envelopes and buy stamps.
I have to return a box to a company for an unwanted item and that will require standing in line at the post office. I'll try to time that so there are fewer people. When is that exactly?
I haven't given much thought to what clothes I'm taking either. I have checked the weather in Long Beach so I know how to dress but coming up with the correct traveling clothes is always a challenge. And shoes are an entirely different matter!
Okay now to the really, really important part....fingers and toes! I must have a manicure and pedicure before I leave on a trip. My feet need grooming badly. My fingers are not so bad right now but still need attention.
Soooooo...I'll go to the office store for the envelopes while I leave the printer printing the invitations. I'll address the envelopes while my feet are made pretty. I'll go through my closet and choose outfits while I listen to a conference call this afternoon. I'll ask a friend to make the payment and sign the contract for the Dragon Boat catering as she has to contact them anyway for a sponsorship. I'll buy stamps at the post office when I return the package. I'll leave the addressed envelopes for Wayne to stamp and mail tomorrow.
NOW....if I can just get a seat on the plane tomorrow (I fly standby) I'll have had a good couple of days.
Examine Yourself - Some notes I took from Sunday's sermon: The 40 Days of Lent-does not include Sundays because they are days of celebrating the Resurrection of Christ. *II...
