Do Us All A Favor?

As you can probably tell by the fact that I am posting less frequently than usual right now (and when I do post there’s a 50/50 chance it has something to do with LISTEN TO YOUR MOTHER CHICAGO), I am swamped.

SWAMPED, I tell ya.

It’s nothing that hasn’t happened before.

You might be thinking, “She’s always swamped.”

True, sort of.

I’m always busy, but the feeling of being overwhelmed comes and goes with no warning.

At this very moment, I am so far underwater I can’t even see. I know that it will pass. Everything I’m working on in all areas will get done.

Here’s some food for thought, intentionally vague because the details aren’t important.

If you are ever in a situation that requires you to work with other people, especially in a deadline situation, please do your best to take care of your part in such a way that gives the other people the time they need to finish the project in a timely manner AND try not to say or do things that require the others to invest more time and effort (and even in some cases, money) than is necessary. If we all do this, the world will be a much happier place.

And no, I’m not talking about YOU.



But pass it on, would you? Thanks.

    This takes me back to college days when group papers & group projects usually left me feeling homicidal with rage! I hope things slow down for you soon!

      Thanks, Heather! It’ll be fine. I just have a day here and there where I want to rip my hair out. 🙂

    As long as you remember to breath [passes a fried Oreo] slow and steady, my friend.

      I’m trying!
      Hey, can you pass me another fried Oreo, please? YUM.

    You’re talking about me, aren’t you?

    • Melisa April 26, 2012, 12:58 pm

      How did you know???

      Kidding. I’m not. You are definitely on the “Not Annoying In The Least” list. 🙂

    Just remember, no matter how busy you are, you always manage to hit every deadline and shine through my friend!

    Good luck! 🙂

    You’re totally talking about ME, aren’t you? I knew it. You hate me.

    • Melisa April 26, 2012, 1:00 pm

      No way! And shut up; you know I love you. Long time.

  • DaddysFishBowl April 26, 2012, 2:51 pm

    Well I was all set to comment that I knew you were talking about me, but clearly you’ve made a lot of enemies in this world because multiple people have already beat me to it. lol
