shelters (free clip art)
Tomorrow I am going to do something that I have wanted to do for a long time. I’m going to visit a homeless shelter and meet the people who work and live there. I have always wanted to work at or volunteer for a position with a homeless shelter. Tomorrow after the tour Sara is going to tell me all about the volunteer opportunities available.
I figured now is the best time to start volunteering with the difficulties that families are having with their finances. The shelter is at full capacity right now and they are in need of help. This County has always been known as a rich community but with the increase in unemployment and the high interest rates affecting the housing market a lot of people are ending up in shelters. I’m hoping I’ll be able to get a lot out of this experience and I hope I become more grateful for everything I have.

I don’t understand why some days I feel like I could eat 6 meals and other days I’m not hungry at all. I find this very interesting, because it doesn’t seem to have anything to do with how much I exercise. Take yesterday for example I wasn’t hungry at all, and today I could eat all day long. I have had 4 meals already and it is only 7:00 P.M. I don’t understand my metabolism. I’m hoping I get to a point where I wont have to eat 5 meals in one day!

One of the things that has always annoyed me about ordering things online is that a lot of times there is no way to actually communicate with a live human about the product or service. So many websites restrict you to only communicate through their contact form. When you are thinking about placing an order, and trusting the company with your money, however, you might want to be able to reach the company by phone, right? So when I saw on the Musician’s Friend website the message “To place your order, call us toll-free at 800-449-9128
” I was glad to see that their company sees the value in allowing the prospective customer more than one way to communicate and place orders!
We are grilling today. This is a big deal for us. Most of the time I just cook on the stove top or in the oven. So to put meat on the grill and stand there while it cooks to make sure it does not catch on fire or burn will be a challenge. I hope it does not rain on us. That would make our grill out not very pleasant and not practical for this holiday weekend. The weatherman says that it will be hot and clear, so I’m hoping he is right (for a change!)
