A Busy Week

The last week of Special Olympics "bowling practice". Actually it was just a way to get all 16 games required to participate next season in an organized unstressful manner. It's surprising how inattentative folks are about special olympic athlete paperwork. Glad I have two months before it has to be on file at the Madison office! June 1st Special Olympics Bocce ball season begins.

Been cleaning inside. Started to dig back into Dave Ramsey's "EntreLeadership" book. About two-thirds through it. Very good book for a starting entrepreneur! Still tired. Have a nagging left eyelid twitch which is always a sign of tiredness for me. I was on nine hour days last week and again this week. Eager to get gardening!
