I got an email today.  A section of it is pasted below.
Why do people who make blatant errors like this get the jobs and
yet I sit here unemployed?
This is beyond frustrating!

Have you ever made an error like this at work?
(That most likely thousands of people saw….)
Did you get into trouble?

And while you’re commenting…
Do you know of anyone hiring in Upstate NY?

This past week has been one of those weeks where Michael and I helped where we could.

We may not have much money, but we do have friends, we do have hands that can work, we do have strength for friends who need more….

Sometimes the support of a friend means so much more than anything that money can buy….

Remember, lend an ear when a friend needs someone to listen, or a shoulder when they need to cry.
Lend your presence when they’re lonely, and a hand when they need help up.

Treat your friends as you’d like to be treated in return.

Chart from HERE

Many of you don’t know, but I was married on May 22, 1999.  Today would have been my 11 year wedding anniversary.  A friend and I often talk about divorce rates.  Our parents are both still married and it’s the first marriage for all of them.  We think part of the reason was, back in the 50’s & 60’s divorce was very taboo and airing your dirty laundry was frowned upon.  Couples worked through problems.  Today it is so acceptable, most people don’t even attempt to save a marriage that’s in trouble.  In my eyes, many things are worth working on, and certain things are unforgivable.  It’s a fine line for many.

Does anyone have any theories why divorce rates shot through the roof in the 70’s?
I’m sure the statistics and reasons are online somewhere but I’m too tired to look!!

He works hard for the money!!

While in Key West we went to Mallory Square to enjoy the sunset.  Every evening there are street performers and vendors in the area.  There was a guitar player and as he played, this little cutie would walk around to the audience members for the tips.  When you gave the dog the tip, he’d walk over and drop it into the bucket.  He was so cute!  He looked VERY well cared for too!  I bet the treats the guy gave him were gourmet!!

What’s the cutest animal trick you’ve seen lately?

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.

Miss Isabella

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?
