It was terrific. Every last minute of every day. And the kids survived. Husband too. And work, well, I’ll know more this week when it all comes flying into the fan. Or not…
Have made a huge leap, technologically, and it took unplugging to get there. I firmly pledge to not be afraid to hit submit; or return; or send.
There’s a real fear of screwing up for people like me who shared computers in the college library (14 small, square machines for 10k students). And lugged my wall calendar (until just recently…) to orthodontist appointments and PTA meetings and soccer fields in order to schedule weekly obligations.
But really, if I don’t hit send and figure this out, then I’ll fall even farther behind. So I’m hitting send, and all other necessities to get out there and get noticed. And take my clients with me.
But while I’m learning, be patient. And please ignore the mass distribution of my virgin out-of-office reply apparently sent to everyone in my in box, despite coaching from the tech-savvy 16 year old. EVERYONE. Multiple times. Pissing off many, making others laugh, and actually landing me a writing gig from a long lost friend who didn’t know I was back to work . . . again.
