Well, hello there! If you’re wondering to yourself,” “Wow, this post is late,” it’s because yours truly dropped the ball. I blanked. While there’s no such thing as a good excuse for flaking, here was my week last week:
Tuesday night – cross our beloved dog Pogo over the rainbow bridge;
Wednesday – pack for the first MWA board meeting of the year in New York, plus a three-week stay in the burbs to sub for my brother in keeping an eye on our 96-year-old mother; set up a fundraiser on Facebook for The Amanda Foundation, the rescue that gifted us with both Pogo and our late Wiley;
Thursday – fly to NY on my birthday and profuse thanks to American Airlines for the well-timed complimentary upgrade to Business Class. As I described it to a friend, it was a vacation in the air. (On her recommendation, I shared this with the airline as a possible future ad campaign);
Friday through Sunday – In Manhattan for the MWA board meeting (view from hotel window below);
Sunday afternoon – Train up to Ossining, where I am currently housed with Mom.
I brought my datebook, filled with notes and reminders. Did I look at it? Nope. So I give you… the world’s latest Chicks post!
I’ll be spending the next three weeks at Mom’s, trying to follow my usual routine out of suitcases and on a laptop set up on Mom’s dining room table. It’s going to be a challenge, that’s for sure. Also for sure? Things will fall through the cracks.
But sometimes the perpetual juggling act we call life gets away from us. And all we can do is our best to catch up.
Readers, does this sound familiar to you? Have you been here yourselves?
