A Tuesday off from work to break up what would otherwise have been a seven-day work week. More than eight hours of sleep for the first time in months; more work done with gym personnel for the upcoming kung fu class I’m teaching; more training on White Eyebrow with new moves added (finally!); more research on farmers’ markets and festivals where I can test the market for my baked goods. A completely packed so-called day off!
…Taping a show tomorrow with the host flying in same day. Worried about the weather interfering in her arrival and having to reschedule a show that was hard to book in the first place.
…Have to find hosts by Thursday for the double taping day at the end of the month with former and current politicos. Another item that needs to be put to bed before work this weekend, or I’ll run out of time for the hosts to read the books.
…Looking forward to getting back to New York but not sure if I’m looking forward to the work. Spending Friday and Saturday in Harlem producing the live coverage of a book fair that’s rumored to be a chaotic gig is sure to add a few grey hairs. To top it off, neither I nor my director has worked this one before. Right now it’s a touch of angst but it has the potential to become full-blown anxiety. Gotta keep that under control and focus on organization.
…Have to get an answer before Harlem on whether I need to fly to Texas to do an interview with the August guest. Just my luck he’ll say yes but only leave me two days to choose from. A whirlwind trip will end up getting squeezed in around the time I get my son home from Vermont and start teaching the kung fu class – just because Murphy has that irritating little law.
Just one foot in front of the other, just one day at a time – the only way to live a life much fuller than I ever thought it could be. 🙂
