State Associations

I know that I haven't posted for several days and I apologize for that. The truth is, I'm in the process of re-evaluating how I use my time. Too many irons in the fire but I love all of my irons and I want to keep them all, plus add a few that I've got my eye on. I know, if you have or have ever had a toddler, I sound like I subscribe to the Toddler's Rules of Ownership:

1. If I like it, it's mine.
2. If it's in my hand, it's mine.
3. If I can take it from you, it's mine.
4. If I had it a little while ago, it's mine.
5. If it's mine, it must never appear to be yours in any way.
6. If I'm doing or building something, all the pieces are mine.
7. If it looks just like mine, it is mine.
8. If I saw it first, it's mine.
9. If you are playing with something and you put it down, it automatically becomes mine.
10. If it's broken, it's yours.
11. If it's broken, but you are having fun playing with the pieces, it's mine again.
12. If there is ANY doubt, it's mine.

There are simply so many cool things in the world that it's hard to get them all done in one day. Then there are those responsibilities that supercede all the fun play stuff: work, family, volunteerism, church, laundry, supper, dishes... you know how it is. So certainly over "the holidays", which includes Halloween though I think of that as a diversion not a holiday, postings will be sporatic here, though I do have some things already in the works to share with you. Hang with me and I'll do my best to share as I can. I have lots of irons to share with you, just trouble getting the time figured out.

I spent the better part of last week at my state's Activity Association Confernece. If you have never been to your state's annual conference- GO! I was very inspired and touched by the depth of care for "our" folks and the creativity and fun on the part of my fellow Activity Directors. Seriously, it's only marginally about the CEU's. I work alone, no staff, so feel on an island a great deal of the time. The kindness and "realness" of our co-professionals is just sensational. So GO to your next annual conference.

Alright- that's my soap box and cheerleading for today. See ya again-- promise.
