Presentation today

I worked for 10 hours yesterday and still didn't get my presentation done. I will get in to my office early today and have until 9:00 to get it done. I have no doubt I will get it done, but I wish I had started it earlier. But at the age of 54, it is highly unlikely that I will change this particular M.O. since it has served me so well in my life.

It feels like autumn is in the air already. Fall is my favorite season, but I have to admit that I feel sad that this summer is already almost over. I only had my trip to Savannah for a vacation, and that wasn't nearly restorative enough.

I am debating whether to go see my sponsor this weekend. There is a Peach Festival she and her husband are committed to attend on Friday. I am so freaking tired that the idea of walking around a Peach Festival sounds like torture and I don't want to go. Then there are several options of what I can do instead.... like drive over on Saturday morning instead of Friday. Or go next weekend. I don't know why this seems like rocket science right now.

I hope that right now as I type this you're sitting in a nice relaxing hot bath, letting the crapola that's running across the board room table at your IBSC meeting just melt away... if not well, at least tomorrow marks the end of presentation preparation and it will be on to some other form of insanity, no doubt!

take care, my friend!

Options can feel like rocket science sometimes.
