Best Laid Plans

It's gray in Kansas, and cold. Not as gray and cold as this time last year, but enough to make it hard to wake up. I hate being cold.

I added a "follow by email" button to my blogs. Since I've been a bit sporadic lately, and since I'm guessing the email notification includes the post so you could conceivably read it on your phone (not while driving, please), it seemed a no-brainer. I don't know if it tells me you've signed up or not. Let me know if you like it.

Last night did not go as planned. I had a plan and got side-tracked. By people.

Stephen Covey says when you organize your life according to higher, guiding principles as expressed in your mission statement, you are better able to prioritize your energy into important things. He considers people important and nearly impossible to schedule. chuckle. I'm learning to agree with him.

Rabbi Lapin said impatience with interruptions only proves my arrogance, not my competence. I was interrupted several times, but I felt no impatience (not last night, anyway). I love the people who interrupted me. We got some things done I hadn't planned. I inadvertently started a Bible study. We'll see how that goes.

I guess my point is a little lost sleep for one night won't kill me.

Just don't push it, folks. Sleep-deprived turtles are grumpy.

  3. I was wondering who in the world bobbob was. I'm excited, too, My Dear Friend.

    And, Vaulter, you're always a welcome interruption, even if it's just to listen to me cry.
