Scheduling conflicts.

That was the theme of my Sunday. I get together with a group of friends weekly - and last night we met together for the first time in six weeks.

We're not meeting next week. In fact once we figured out our next few months to really nail down our schedules - we realized that we couldn't meet in June or July...or August. One guy was going to India for two months and another to Texas for a month.

I'll be in Kansas (or is it Missourri?) for a week. Another guy is on a softball team and in a band.

Because us getting together isn't any of our top priorities, I imagine this will go on and on.

I don't think our conflict is really with our schedules. Our conflict is with our focus, our priorities and our dedication.

This isn't to say that our focus, priorities or dedication are off - I'm right there with the rest of the group. My family is certainly a bigger priority than the group getting together - I have other responsibilities - we all do.

It's just dissapointing when you'd love to do more, and there's energy with meeting with a group of people...but you just can't get it together.

I can't quite figure out how to get around this...
