Oh man, I have a lot going on right now. And I'm smack dab in themiddle of it. Balancing to-do list, prioritizing and getting things done one by one. I find myself so energized by it. I feel like I can accomplish all of it by deadline (I never miss deadlines). I feel like it's all going to be done well. And it's all going to be something I look back on next week and say "Holy monkey, I can't believe I got all that accomplished and kept my cool!". I'm looking forward to that feeling.

I have to have it all done by Friday night because Jill Sobule is performing in Bloomington and invited me to go. I'm excited to meet her. But I can't stay long because I'm going out of town Saturday morning. My mom, my youngest brother and I are going on a road trip (my mom's idea). She's picking me up at 4 o'clock in the blessed morning (oh my!) and we're off to South Carolina. She really wants to walk on the beach at night. I'm looking forward to that too. I hope it's warm.

Gotta get back to work.
