I just had to utter the four dreaded words. No, it's not: "you have a blog!" although you might be on to something.
Those very well could be the four dreaded words these days ... because ... well ... I am being neglectful to this little blog-o-mine. But no ... those weren't the four dreaded words.
It was these:
Ahhhh! I know. It's unthinkable. I'm an organizer ... and I can't find *it*!
I imagine I'm likely the only one who thinks I should always be able to find everything all the time. Truly, when I'm real with myself, I know you don't care if I can find the "it" I'm looking for or not. But to have to utter these words out loud ... and to my husband ... ekes. Now he's a great guy ... but quick, too. His rebuttal: "it's probably under the phones." Which of course makes no sense to you ... but truly, sums up my current state of affairs.
See ... I was out organizing for a client today when back at the office, the phone rang. Jay went to find it and ... no luck. We have two cordless phones ... and both of them were MIA. Buried. Completely buried under my latest creation for the book. Guess what ... I make a mess when I create. And sometimes I lose things...
The redeeming fact was that I knew where the phones were ... but I'm guessing he's on to something. Things are unbelievably crazy here. The book ... wow ... fun stuff ... just lots of it! Next Friday is hand-off ... where Wendy and I turn the book over to design. So ... were almost there ... whew! And on that note ... thank you so much for all your terrific ideas for the book! We really appreciate it ... and if it doesn't all make it into the book, most certainly your ideas will provide for some fun article writing or blog posting someday soon ... someday when I can find things again, right-minded people can find my phone when they walk into my office ... and I don’t neglect my blog.
ahhh ... thanks for listening...
