6/8 Work, work, work

Lots of work to be done. I’m feeling vaguely dissatisfied, and finally figured out why. It’s the inevitable letdown that comes after an extraordinary experience. My daughter, Jill, turned on the light bulb for me. She called, and I got to talk to Kayla for quite a while; that was the best part of my day so far.

Russ called earlier too. It was nice to talk to him. We went from talking for hours every day to nothing, so it’s nice to connect every now and then.

Have one meeting this afternoon and horrendous deadlines to meet. Am in the middle of two journals, one hard copy newsletter, and two online newsletters. Every now and then the stars align in a certain way and everything is due at the same time. Yikes.

Also we’re preparing for our international conference at the end of July, and things are hectic because of that. I’m sending out press releases and invitations to reporters/editors to attend. It’s exciting, but also taxing.

Probably should end my lunchtime and get back to work. No time for comedy today. Damn!

Mom, I still don't know how do you find time for sleeping, socializing, and eating! You are like the most busy person I know! And you manage everything so well. I am glad you and Russ stayed friends. :-) Love you!

Thanks, sweetie. I'm doing my best to leave work at work, but it's not easy. I'll come in tomorrow for a while to try to clean off my desk. Last time I did that I found a copy of the Rosetta Stone. (No, not the software. The real Rosetta Stone.)
