Brand new day

It's gone. The designer has tweaked the last detail. I've redlined the last edit. though... at 4am I did hit my computer keyboard and make a few additional changes to the last piece in the book. Colour me crazy!

Gosh. Perfection is so hard to achieve!

it is now what it is. Whether or not my 4am changes can make the press will be seen. I'm counting on them being there though -- you know. They really do make it all better :)!

And now I've got to get running for a presentation at 8am. I know. I know. Balance. I promised.

tomorrow. tomorrow.

Tomorrow I will start working on balance.

Stop! What about right now! What about getting it in the works starting now?

Right. I will go to my 8am presentation. Meet the reporter I have to meet at 9:30. Proof the video we're working on for the Volunteer Appreciation on Friday and...

See what I mean.

I'm laughing as I type this. I'm so predictable! Balance is not my forte, but, then again, maybe this is balance in my life. This is balance as it appears for me.

Gotta think on that one.

In the meantime, gotta run. I've just spent two hours tweaking the last piece in the book, along with editing one of my daughter's final essays and writing C.C. a love note.

See, I have balance. It just comes in the middle of the night.

Still smiling. Still running into my day, arms wide open, greeting all that comes with anticipation, expecting the unexpected and not being disappinted.

It's a brand new day!

And because it is, a brand new day, here's a great song to get your day shining with anticipation

Sting -- Brand New Day (there's a brief ad at the beginning -- it's worth it to get to the song)
