Don't Go Looking For Trouble... You May Find It!



That is my motto for today... I need to stay focused and not invite further complications in my life... I already have enough to occupy my mind!

I just came back from a Diocesan meeting that took up the bulk of the day. It never ceases to amaze me how much effort is being put into eliminating any future abuse issues or personnel issues or employment procedure issues or any issues that they haven't thought of as yet. And who gets to keep track of and maintain documentation on all the new procedures? Yup... the good old bookkeeper/HR person. I think I need another couple of filing cabinets!

As you can tell, my cable decided to work for a bit, so I am trying to rush this post in before it goes out again (besides, I have been waiting for an opportunity to post the above picture!). I hope that it is done pouting for a few days at least. With tropical storms brewing, I like to have access to the internet and NOAA!

But which one is in trouble?

ie the paperwork...I don't know where this crap is going to end but it's rediculous. Our county just spent $5000 protecting the paper work we have on line. Every year the records and protecting their welfare becomes more and more expensive.
I hope the big blows stay away from you and yours this season.

It's mental that churches (and anyone for that matter) have to waste that much time and effort trying to protect themselves from foolishness, but they do. The world has gone lawsuit crazy so better to protect yourself just in case than ignore the possibility.

oh my goodness, where I work I'm the last to know about the processes and procedures that have been changed!

Luckily everyone has stayed out of my corner while doing a major health insurance carrier conversion and addition to our benefits plan.

The amount of time wasted each day putting out fires that haven't even started astound me.
