I have a question for all of YOU...
Did anyone even see an ad on the blog in the past 48 hours?
I have been blacklisted by google adsense. Not good, since Google controls most of the universe these days. They told me I had illegal click activity on my blog. I don't even remember seeing any ads yet. I wonder if my comments about NOT clicking got me in trouble somehow? Weird. I am going to appeal it, but their Q&A on the matter leads me to believe I am SOL on this for this account at least. That's a drag.
That, my friends, is why you should always have multiple streams of income for whatever it is you are up to. You never know when and where one stream is suddenly going to dry up! I think the investing word is 'diversification!' However, until about a year ago, I thought that only pertained to where you invest the money you already made. Now, I am learning that the 80% of wealthy people out there have multiple streams of income as well as multiple streams of investment... the game being that when you avoid high risk investments, they become a source of income themselves over time!
Alright, enough about that.
Q&A: Yes, standard vaccination schedules are followed with the kids in the BMT trial.
Today has continued to be a rough grief day. I shake it for a little while, then it creeps back. Combined with the grief is the overwhelmed feeling I know too well when I over-commit or over-extend. I am reading a great book by the organizational guru David Allen called, "Getting Things Done." In it, he paints a very sympathetic heart for the overstimulated and attention depleted world we now live in. He explains that for 99.99% of our human history, work was self evident. Crops needed tending, buildings needed building, etc. Only in the past 30 years or so have we moved into a primarily knowledge economy. Work is never finished, and there is no clear indicator for what is the 'right' work we should be doing. The tyranny of email alone has cast most of us into an un-winnable game of survival with our inboxes. Right now, I have 4291 emails in my inbox in my Gmail account. That's not including my junk mail or spam folder, and that is only 1 of now 4 different email accounts I manage. I am under no illusions that I will NEVER, EVER, EVER clean out that inbox. However, it represents my brain in a way. We all get dumped on every single day by endless emails (the average office worker gets just under 200 a day) and we are forced to make hundreds of micro decisions a day... do I open it? Do I read it? Do I reply? Do I reply all? Do I delete it or just leave it? My brain is fried trying to manage this tidal wave in the space of pain and grief, and I know you don't need to be going through pain and grief to feel bludgeoned by email!
Hahaha, my brain hurts just LOOKING at that run-on paragraph! Poignant...
I need to go to bed.
A tired, fried, and frazzled hug to you all,
