What happened to February!? OK, it is a short month, but really, I look up at the calendar and shake my head in disbelief that it is nearly the end of the month already. There are things on my To Do list hanging around from last December that I swore I would complete by the end of January! (Well, the mosaic garden table was supposed to be finished by the end of LAST January – that project is waaay behind.)

Balancing personal and business life is getting to be quite a challenge. On the one hand I am lucky to have a job that lets me jump up and put out fires. On the other hand, I sometimes wish that I had a job that kept me confined for 8 hours so that I didn’t have to jump up and put out fires.

I’d like to chalk up the passing of deadlines to my work load taking priority, but the personal time blocks in my Outlook Calendar are overwhelming my job time blocks.

Again it’s that ying and yang thing.¬†On the one hand, this is good in that I am getting to know my mother for the first time in my life. And on the other hand, I frequently have to move my job schedule in order to make the time to do this.
