Falling Short. Standing Tall.

(cc) Douglas CooteyI wasn't able to make all my goals. I'm afraid micromanaging children then ticking got in my way. Still, I'm happy I did this. I knew I was biting off more than I could chew, but the challenge pushed me and made me want to taste the success. There is still time to my evening, but I need to wind down to preserve my sleep schedule. I'll post a new list tomorrow for another high stakes game of public failure or success.

One last thing. It is with great relief that I can write that I mailed the contract off. They mailed it to me almost one month ago. I didn't realize how long it had been. Yes, I've been sick and neurologically offline a lot, but three weeks? I forgot to check my mail, got the contract but lost it, then found it days later only to forget about it for five days. Then I couldn't find my old contract to transcribe the addendum onto the new contract. What a fiasco—like a clown circus complete with pies and seltzer water.

Do you think it's too soon to ask for another assignment?
