October 26, 2011 – Day 4
Goal: Oy! Today is going to be one of those days. I am feeling blah. Under the weather, tired, overwhelmed. I simply have too much to do. I leave town tomorrow for a three day conference and I need to prepare and pack; I am working today and have a jam-packed schedule of staff meetings, telephone calls, and deliverables due; LM has after school activities that require me to assume my role as Chauffeur; and to top it all off, it is garbage day. Yuck. My goal is, quite simply, to just get through it, to put my head down, focus, and put one foot in front of the other until it is finished. And there is one other noteworthy event today: My father is having his second surgery of the year, and I can’t be there for him, nor for my mother while she waits. Thinking of you both.
Gratitude: Thank God for coffee. Sweet, hot, delicious coffee. I ♥ you. And related, to the powers-that-be at Starbucks, who had the presence of mind to place a Starbucks coffee shop right next door to the post-secondary school I am running, all I can say is “Kudos!” Job well done. I ♥ you, too.
Update from Day 3: Halloween, √; Paper work, almost there; Patience, I did pretty darn good.:)
