This chicken scratch you’re looking at is my schedule for tomorrow, well, my schedule up until 1:45 pm. This list goes well on to the back of this page. I already deemed it a day from hell yesterday when I learned how hectic the day would be. I vented to my husband, my sister and a girlfriend about my frustration with this day. “Why all of this in one day?!”, I whined. However, after giving a bit more thought with a clear head and fresh eyes today, I realize that tomorrow is nothing more than another challenging day. Some of the most challenging days come out of nowhere, but I see tomorrow coming from a mile away and have the opportunity to make the day mine. So, I have a plan, and I will be able to prepare tonight by packing a lunch and choosing my outfit, two things that always trip me up. I even added a little coffee and donuts stop to add some fun to our morning. And, one fantastic thing I realized is that I will have so many interactions with people that I enjoy, which is a total bonus. Many days I never leave my office, but tomorrow I will be out and about and it’s going to be 75 in Seattle…in May…that’s crazy talk! When tomorrow is over, I will feel accomplished and relieved, and I will be able to unwind with my wonderful husband. Tomorrow is going to be great.
