Mondays are probably my busiest day because of taking off for the weekend. Emails back up, I take pictures over the weekend that need to be downloaded to my computer, and today is menu and grocery list planning day. Everyone in the house does their own laundry, but I just so happen to choose Monday as my day, along with changing sheets, cleaning up the house a bit, you know all those domestic chores that always seem to need doing, but are never completed.
Actually, I think I've planned Monday as my day off, so to speak, but I really do love my job and want to always be in the middle of it.
I do keep my schedule in front of me so that I can stay focussed on what I'm in the middle of and what needs to be done. I don't always get to everything on my daily list but no worries, I will get to it.
One of my sons is playing football this year on the freshman team. While I'm out supporting him and practicing my sports shooting, I'm also getting an education in how the game is played. My husband played when he was in high school and is very passionate about the game. He is also very vocal. I, on the other hand, am usually pretty quiet. So occasionally, I'll get the wits scared right out of me when he gets excited over the game. But, I'm learning.
Here are a few of the photos of his most recent game, where he made his first tackle.
Ok, looks like this is the only photo I can upload at this time. This happened to me the last time too. Well, I've kept trying to upload a few more with still no luck so if you want to see the rest of the album, head over to my facebook page. I guess if this keeps up, I will have to take the advice of some of my readers and move my blog.
I belong to a couple of networking groups here in town. It's a way to get my name and what I do out there at very little cost. It's advertising by word of mouth. I've been a member of this one group for a couple of years now with my Gift Shop business. I recently stepped out with my photography to the group and will give my first presentation this week.
I almost lost out on this opportunity to spread the news about my photography business. I have hesitated in the past about bringing it up in the meetings for fear that I don't know enough yet. So I was going to wait to announce it. Another buddy from the group stepped up a couple of months ago and said that he was also a photographer and I thought that I had lost out on that opportunity.
Our networking group is exclusive to each business in the group. In other words, they only allow one banker, one accountant, one photographer, and so on.
Anyway, that photographer has moved on from the group so I stepped out and announced my photography business and will now promote it through this networking group.
So if you are on the fence about stepping out, take a leap of faith before someone else beats you to it.
