The hurrier I go....

With the flurry of activities surrounding my several projects this week, I find myself wondering what's next? As the saying goes: the hurrier I go, the behinder I get.

So I said to myself, "Self, you gotta get organized and finish at least one of these things that are dangling." And self said back, "Yeah, but I'd rather do the funner things......" So that conversation got nowhere that would do much good, and only accomplished another delay -- of sorts.

So here it is Saturday already, and the dents I've made in the projects I'm responsible for are hardly noticeable. But on the other hand (and there's always another hand around here, it seems) I have had fun doing a totally unrelated project, taken on because there was a need not being filled by those who were charged with handling it. Ya know what I mean?

When I first opened my eyes earlier this morning, I remembered that I do not know where a very important packet of papers has gotten to, and that 'search and discover' will have to take precedence today over any other 'funner' job I might rather do. When I have to move things around to make room for house guests - like at Thanksgiving and Christmas - I put stuff in boxes and then more stuff on top... so this 'important packet' is most likely buried in one of those places. Guess I'll have to get out my old shovel and start digging. Trouble with that, tho, is that when I do start digging, I find other things - unrelated to the object of the search - that also need attention... and so it goes!

In the meantime, a nice long email from a longtime friend was waiting in my Inbox this morning. Whew, I'm so glad to hear from her from the other end of the State. We had not been in touch for months, and I really was just about to pick up the phone and call to see what had happened to her. Last I heard, her mother was getting on up in years, and I wondered .... But that was not the case at all. My friend was just so busy having fun with a new project that her club undertook, that she hadn't had time to communicate.

On rereading this post, I'm glad that 'grammar check' is not activated on this site, or I'd be in bad trouble.

Have a nice rainy morning, and hope the sun will come back out later today!

Oh, I can so relate:) Stay warm. Our rain has left it seems and a cold front moved in on its tail. Brrr..glad I took Duke for our daily stroll early when it was still 60 outside.
