Budgeting Blahs!

In an effort to get enough class hours under my belt to qualify for the PMI certification, I'm taking a Budgeting and Resource Management class right now. Thought I'd share a little of what the textbook says on this subject.

and I quote

"Blah, blah, blah, blah, costs, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, expenses, blah, blah, blah, senior management decides, blah, blah, blah, investments,blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, over runs, blah, blah cash flow, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah..."

for 289 pages....

Well, that's what it looks like to me anyway!

The mathematical formulas look like graffiti and the software is unintelligible.

Where's the "soft skills", the people management, creative thinking etc...that's the stuff all textbooks should be made of. Who the heck thought this stuff up??

OK, I feel better now! Still don't understand a damn thing the book is saying, but at least I feel better about my ignorance, having gotten it off my chest. ;-)


  1. Glad you found the forgiveness piece helpful. I pray you have strength in that area of your life. The pie crust is a ready made, you can do from scratch, but it takes a lot more time. Betty Crocker has a good one in the freezer section. Enjoy!

  2. Thanks Deb!
    I'm gonna make it and I'll let you know how it turns out.
