Am I coming or going?

Sometimes I don't know whether I'm coming or going.  Literally.

Last week I was in Dayton, Ohio for the Erma Bombeck Writers Workshop.  The conference packed in so much humor, and I made so many writer contacts- everyone should experience "work" in that way!
However, sleep deprivation eventually catches up with me; I crashed on Sunday, but dreamed of being funny.

Fast forward to this week's schedule:
Monday and Tuesday,start researching, interviewing and writing and get into that mode.
Wednesday (today) was supposed to be my day for visiting with alligators in Wilmington, N.C.  No, not for an article but to take a workshop for my Environmental Education certification and Teacher renewal credits.

It didn't seem like much of a transition going from one bite to the other...

In my absence of four days, the refrigerator and pantry emptied.  So I was stuck making peanut butter and jelly sandwiches on hamburger rolls and finding sandwich bags for stale chips and mini pretzels. Luckily, Scott left me a Coke and a bottle of water.  I packed these and left them in the toaster oven, hoping that the dogs didn't find them first.

The weather here was so bad last night and Scott said, "There is no way you will get up at 6:00 am to drive 2 hours, to be at a workshop that will last all day, and then drive 2 more hours back home.  The weather isn't going to be any better.  Don't go."

I'm so glad I emailed the instructor about not going and slept until 8:00.  I checked my email; low and behold, the workshop is next Wednesday!

I really need a secretary.

And PB&J sandwiches for breakfast is pretty good.


Here's hoping you can manage your week better than me.  I'd love to hear from you, email me at aitken.helen@gmail.com.

Have a great day.
