Hmmm… What to blog about?? Dog poop? Nah, I think Rob Madeo has that covered….
Baby poop? Nah, the Mommy blogs have stunk up the place with that…
Farting? Nope, covered that last week….
If I do this to a clock will time slow down a bit?
Let’s talk a little bit about things I need to accomplish….
I MUST get my taxes done. The 15th isn’t too far off!! My accountant is probably swamped and I really don’t want to file an extension this year because there is a slight chance I’m going to have to pay in. Even though it’s slight have you seen the interest and penalties they charge? I’d be better off going to a bookie! Seriously! The news said something this morning about 6% interest. BULL$HIT! I know someone who owed $90 to the state. He mailed in a check for the $90 around October of that tax year. He has a bill for $120 which is all interest and penalties. That’s more than 100%!!
I need to go to DMV and renew my registration on my motorcycle and check when my inspection is due.
I need to make a ton of phone calls. One to a hotel, one to a friend about a trip, a couple to banks, a couple to home contractors, and one to my old employer about transferring my 401(k)…. I dread ALL of these calls!
My Friend Who Needs Relationship Advice
I also need to call my friend who needed relationship advice (my most popular blog to date) to check in with him. I don’t dread that call because I genuinely care, but I know I’ll need to block out a good chunk of time for it.
I need to apply to more jobs. I have companies in mind that I want to look into but not enough hours in the day to research them all!
I need to start figuring out what’s for dinner in advance. I hate the never-ending argument with Michael.
I need to clean up things around the house. Sort through piles of mail, etc.
I need to return books to the library.
And best of all – I need to cuddle with Miss Isabella
There’s more on my to-do list but I’d be here all day!!
Do any of you have organization tips to help my days go smoother?

How do you go about a job search? I wrote about how I organize mine here.
I need to find a way to step up this job search.
Usually when I’m sad and things aren’t good I sometimes throw myself into my work.
I can’t do that this time
I have leads I’m working on, but right now I need to have more irons in the fire.
I’ve gotta find that awesome paying wonderful job. It’s got to be out there!
Do any of you have any ideas?
