Went golfing yesterday… did pretty good on the front nine and pretty bad on the back nine. As frustrating as golf can be, it is still a nice way to get outside into the sunshine, though. I wish I could afford to golf more often. A few more times this year and I’m probably done until next Spring.

Seems like I’m bleeding money… school is going to be expensive… I need to find some income to get through, but I do kind of like the idea of not working this first semester. It’s been a long time since I’ve been back in school. I’m not sure how I’ll react when things actually start rolling next week.

Tigers are 5.5 games back… I thought they were going to get on a roll beating the Yankees 3 out of 4 but they can’t seem to keep it going. Oh well, doesn’t look like I’ll have the playoffs distracting me from school work 🙂

Thinking of taking some more shamanic training. I’ve learned shamanic journeying in the past and had a little bit of more advanced training. Now I have an opportunity to take some training on shamanic healing methods. I’m really interested, but there is the money factor… I also haven’t been keeping up my journeying so I’m a little rusty. I’m not sure if I should add this on top of school.

I think I need to step back from my local church stuff too. I’m on four committees, two of which are a significant commitment. Something has to go, I think.

I hope life settles down now. With getting ready for school and taking care of things for my Mom (who is now temporarily in a nursing facility to rehab the broken leg), I’ve been eating badly and spending too much money. Unfortunately, I have a feeling things will stay chaotic with classes starting Tuesday.
