This week, my schedule is as heavy as a Mac truck. I have no idea how I'm going to get everything finished. Thinking ahead, beyond this peaceful blog moment, makes me ill.
In addition to my art projects, I'm now a Cub Scout dad. That's actually a highpoint for me and my son. The problem is getting time off from work to attend the meetings in the middle of a busy newsday. I've made Cub Scouts my priority, but there are so many hoops that I must jump through in order to participate. And our department is short staffed on Mondays. I am one in a few dads who actually stay for the meetings — most people drop their kids off like Cub Scouts are babysitters — so my son really looks forward to my being there.
I'm also co-chairing the PTA yearbook committee. And I'm behind, I should have met with the yearbook printer weeks ago. Thankfully, I'm co-chairing with the wife, so she can make a few phone calls that I'm too busy to deal with.
In addition, today is tax day for big time delinquents, like me. In the next 24 hours, I need to find mortgage interest documents, real estate taxes, home insurance premiums, and utilities paid for the previous year. Sigh.
And I gotta finish three paintings for R&R before 2:00 this afternoon, just in time for my doctor's appointment.
I won't even mention all the other things that are popping into my head right now. I may not blog for awhile. See ya later.
