I did not do much for the environment today. I did buy groceries and bought as much locally grown and organic food that I could. Plus, picked about 10 pounds of pecans that the storm knocked off my trees. We did pass a resolution at the church a couple of Admin Councils ago to switch our light bulbs to the CFL's, so as a regular one burns out we switch. Like buying organic, going green is more expensive initially but pays off down the road.
Today was a fifteen hour work-day. I did not finish my last counseling session until 9:30 tonight. I spent much of today on Charge Conference paperwork. My conference has everything routed through a "new" computer system. I love technology but it is supposed to make life easier and this system is not user friendly. It takes 4-5 minutes for each screen to load (which makes the entire process slow and cumbersome) and then when they do you need a magnifying glass to read them. And when you print the final copy off, the print is gigantic. I actually read a book today between the screen loads -- over five hundred pages. And I'm still not finished with Charge Conference paperwork. But I started early and have a month before my charge conference, so it should work out.
Tomorrow will be just as busy. I remember when I first told my family I was going to be a pastor. My mother exclaimed, "You are getting a job that you only work one day a week!?!" That hasn't materialized.
