So, a list of some various sundries:
1. The Schedule – The planner is helping. I confess that I haven’t been looking at it every day, and unless I do, I won’t come to depend on it. In terms of simplifying, my schedule does seem to be opening a little. I’m currently not singing on the praise team for the forseeable future, which I have to say is nice. I now have my Thursday nights open. That gives me Tuesday and Thursday nights, every other Saturday, every Sunday afternoon really.
2. Currently fighting a very nasty bug. Taking some very high powered anti-biotics and it is helping but I haven’t been this sick since high school, and it’s been at least that long since I’ve taken anti-biotics. So much for any cleaning or accomplishing anything because I’m just happy to be able to breathe.
3. I believe that the Right’s accusation that Pres. Obama has no diplomatic experience has been proven true. Plenty of people who support him say that the fiasco with the exchange of gifts with PM Brown is not a big deal or is good because we don’t apparently want to be in good standing with Britain. Let’s not forget that PM Brown can now go to his top CEOs in his country and tell him to stop trading with the US. Don’t export goods, stop importing goods or parts. He can tell them to get them from China or Japan. I don’t think most people know what that will do to our economy. Let’s also not forget what message it sends to our other allies. Of course, Obama could simply be snubbing Britain in order to kiss Iran’s rear.
More on all this when I actually feel better.
