I Hate Schedules



As summer begins to fade away, the reality of the school year and all that it means sets in. My kids will have schedules, all my clients will have new schedules, my school work will need a schedule and I will have to deal with it all. Weaving all these schedules together can go one of two ways. It can either be a gracefully choreographed ballet of days and times or it can be a demolition derby with the pushiest one winning the prize. I can already tell that this fall it will be the demolition derby.

Everyone wants me to do things and be places on the same day and at the same time. If there were several of me, that'd work out swell. However, with just one of me and with lots of driving to fit in, it is logistically impossible. So now I am left with the task of disappointing and angering people. Not much I can do.

Oh well, might as well dance!

Hmmm...I just bet I can guess which client is being pushy and difficult, can't I?

Don't make yourself crazy, yes you need the money, but you also need to spend time with your family (and your blogging family) or your mental health will suffer.

I'm not crazy....yet. That's why I decided to dance instead of freak out. It'll all fit one way or another. It's the figuring out that gets a bit messy.

Just get Riff Raff and Magenta to be your faithful servants Ten.S. Then you can dance and get everything else done.

Tenacious S said...

I think I need some faithful servants, but are Riff Raff and Magenta to be trusted?

Magenta and Riff Raff are better choices than Brad and Janet...dammit....

There's something about just a jump to the left and a step to the right that makes me happy...or maybe it's just the pelvic thrusts:)

They would have done at least as good a job as my parents Ten. S. Hire them, they need the work and they'll make sure you've got the dance down pat.

Schedules are much easier to deal with if you pronounce the word like a Brit. Say it. "Shedyule!"

Wasn't that fun?

Wow! That's amazing! All my troubles disappeared when I said it that way. Thanks, CP!
