Saturday when I was coming back from Roy's I spotted this little bit of spring in the front flower bed. A crocus - bright yellow, insisting that spring is imminent. Of course, poor little thing has been snowed on and suffered below freezing temperatures since then. You've got to love that persistence.

The last few days have been a blur. I'm very busy at work. Everyday I start with a pile of notes of things I want to get done and I work as fast as I can and at the end of the day I've gone through a bunch of them but I've added new ones. I think I'm losing ground, overall.

This past weekend I worked Friday night, went in Saturday to tidy up some from that event, then went to Wichita on Sunday for an event, then out to a meeting last night. I'm starting to need a little time to stop and think. Of course, that will just mean I'm more behind at work. Seems like the proverbial vicious circle, although I really enjoy the work.

Of course, in addition to work, I insist on having a life, and that takes time as well. Seeing plays, going to lectures, eating out with friends, gathering with groups, serving on boards - it all takes time and energy. These are very pleasant things, of course, but I think my attraction to having a life explains why my house is always a mess. Something has to go. I'm sleeping as little as I can and that only leaves so many hours to work with.

Naturally, I keep thinking of other projects I'd like to do. I'm getting a number of speech requests lately, which I love doing, so that's nice. I've also got some social networking jobs lined up, which is great. If I could just squeeze another 9-10 hours into each day I could get everything done I want to do. If you have the answer to that, please let me know as soon as possible.

I love all the parts of my life. I just want to expand some of them, and address some I've let lie fallow.
