It’s the piling up…

…that gets you.

Disturbing news about Cisco Systems cutting their workforce (BoomR, we are all pulling for you, luv), the economy, the stress funnel of the last six weeks of school, health issues, doctor bills, the price of gasoline…it’s enough to send a girl to the moon, lemmetellya.

But then there’s that delicious oasis called “the personal day.”

Tonight, the Js come over to spend the night and all day tomorrow with Grammie, while their daddy is on the road and their mama goes to a math geek conference in Indianapolis (have fun, doll — you deserve it!). The piling up will take place in my absence.

BFF Kay told me on the phone the other day that she thought the ceiling of my classroom just might remain intact if I am not there (we were talking about the eventual hip replacement surgery). I’m not sure I want to test that theory. But one thing’s for sure: the piles of stuff to do will stay intact; indeed, they will be fruitful and multiply in my absence and gather en masse to greet me when I return.

So I’d best get going. Happy Overwhelmsday to you — now git bizzy.


PS to PK — Saw the photos of your ribbon-cutting; congrats on the new place of bizzy-ness! <3

I wear a lot of hats for the Consumer Products training group, including sales trainer, technical trainer, and courseware developer for both sales and technical audiences (in fact, on that last point, I’m the ONLY one in the group who has that skill). Countless times my bosses… Read more »
