I swear, I don’t know whether I’m coming or going this week, but I do know that I’m either coming or going in a lot of different directions. I’ve had a lot on my plate lately, and naturally I’ve been far too scatterbrained to write about any of it in a timely manner. (Sidebar: I just wrote “manner” as “nammer”. W. T. F.) So, what has me so scattered lately?
(Sort of like this, only my schedule is full and I don’t know who those people are. Image from stock.xchng.)
I’m doing three presentations next week, and obviously I don’t have any of them finished yet. I do know what I’m talking about in each one, so that’s a good start. Right? I mean, they’re about social media, which is pretty much what I always talk about, so I should be good.
Ah yes, that little conference you may or may not have heard about. It’s in two and half weeks, and it’s starting to dominate my life. Or at least, my Twitter and Facebook streams. I’m trying to wrangle sessions, keynotes, meetings, parties, and all that fun stuff. But, since it’s me, naturally my biggest concern is what bag I’m going to carry. I swear I go through this at every conference, and I’m still never happy with my choice. Who has a great conference bag? Anyone?
I’m moving at the end of August, but because I’m so OCD I’m already starting to get things organized. So far I’ve mostly been cleaning things out, and my living room looks like Goodwill opened a new showroom there. At some point I’ll have to lug all of that stuff out to my car and drop it off. It’s the lugging part I’m not so thrilled about. I’ve also started a half enthusiastic attempt at packing. Which means that I took all the pictures off the walls to make it seem like I’ve gotten more accomplished. That didn’t really work, and now I just feel sad every time I look at the blank white walls. Needless to say, Teddy is not so thrilled about all of this moving things around business.
Then, of course, there’s all that other day to day business. Meaning that if I don’t do laundry soon, I’m going to have to show up at the office in a cocktail dress. Also, what’s up with cooking dinner? I have to do it every night? And then do the dishes? So. over. it. No, really, I am. Last night I had microwave popcorn for dinner.
