Fridays-Filling up the calendar

May 24, 2013

Has anyone heard of The Influence Network?  I heard about it from a friend that found them from the blog: Eat, Live Run.  Their purpose is to make your online life purposeful and to share and enrich your faith and love in Christ!  I’m in!  Looking into it, they even have conferences available.

This weekend is going to be crazy!  I work two-twelve hour shifts on Saturday and Sunday, then we leave first thing on Monday for Yosemite!  I’m super excited but see my time dwindling. I’m hoping to be able to write a few posts tonight for next week if there is time left after dinner with some friends.  Am I the only person who feels like they always fill up their calendar?  It’s almost a reflex for me to fill any extra shred of time with some event, walk, coffee, or dinner with any friends that are available.  I love it…..husband not so much!  I tell him that he needs me to fill his social calendar, otherwise he would always be at the beach or at home reading!  Not that being at the beach is a problem, it’s just that I LOVE being around people and making new friends, it’s just my thing.  We use the icloud and the Iphone’s calendar app to sync our schedules since he can be gone 48 hours at a time (typical firefighter’s schedule.) Every time I update or add something to the calendar, he gets a direct notification to his phone.  This means when I’m really going to town on the calendar he’s getting a buzz on his phone every few seconds…..poor guy.  I have found that going over social events and discussing them together first before committing to them has been helpful in our marriage.  This way we both aren’t doing something we don’t want to.

Bible verse of the week:For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast.” Ephesians 2:9

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a great weekend!

Questions for you:  Have any fun summer vacations planned?  DO you know of any blogs that appear to have “the influence?” Ever been to Yosemite?  Suggestions on what to do are welcomed 😉
