Fired Up & Ready To Go

I just slept for a good ten hours.  Although I don’t feel completely at 100% yet, I am ready to get back to work.  I know I was at work for the past five weeks, but it felt less like work at the orphanage as time went on.  Now that I’m back in site, I have many volunteers to contact about several different ongoing projects.  At the same time, I am going to start looking for a new house and working on paperwork for the Peace Corps.  It really is going to be a busy couple of weeks.

I think I fell a day behind on my Memory Challenge during my travels.  I’ll update twice today to catch up.  I just spent half an hour fixing all the links in the Challenge.  All the memories are now available to read.  Here is Day Eleven:

Day Eleven: AIM Crush Realization

Order of Operations

I have three heavy-duty, time-consuming projects going on right now.  First, I’m four days into The 50 Day Memory Challenge.  Second, I have a large Elance job.  Third, I need to finish the third draft of my manuscript.  It’s getting difficult to sit down and figure out which one I should be working on.  This is the third day that it has been like this.  In the end, it goes like this.

1. Memory Challenge.  It’s quick and makes me feel creatively accomplished when I finish.
2. Elance.  Since I accomplish creativity early, I feel like I have the energy to do monotonous work.
3. Edit.  Doing this last means that I can do it for as long as I want without causing a problem.

I still might have to take a break to go on another adventure.  The fire here in Fort Collins is kind of crazy–37,000 acres in 48 hours.  It’s starting to hit the outer edge of town.  It’s still 0% contained and burning lots of houses to the ground.  I went on two expeditions yesterday–one brought us close to the flames.  The other got me pulled over.  What does today’s adventure bring?

Here is today’s memory:
