Here We Go Again

by Wilfred Bereswill

Sorry to be a disappointment on a Monday morning, but life and my day job have taken over my life.  I may have mentioned it before, but my baby girl, Kaitlin Michelle is days away from graduation from high school.  Today was spent power washing the siding on the house getting ready for the graduation party.  Wrestling with the power washer was like going 15 rounds with an octopus.  Then there were the multiple ups and downs on the 32 foot ladder.  I could barely lift my laptop to write this.

Then there is the wedding that is fast approaching.  My oldest daughter is getting married on July 10th.  I think every weekend between then and now is booked.

Last night I got about 3 hours sleep.  Not sure if it was the decongestant or the problems I'm having revising my website, or all the other stuff running through my mind.  But I did actually wake up with the tag line below on my mind, so I got up and wrote it down at 2:30 AM.  I would up going back into the bedroom at 5:30 AM.

My website.  It's been a while since I revised it.  Problem is, the laptop with all my files and the FTP setup crashed.  I replaced it with my MacBook Pro, which is totally not compatible with the files.  I spent Saturday night developing a new site on iWeb.  It came out okay, but I have lots of cleanup work to do.  Check it out if you'd like.

On top of all that, I am headed to Orlando this week for my day job to give, not one, but seven presentations in a two day period.  At our company, this is the big conference of the year and presentations have to be spot on with content and presented flawlessly.  I've given 5 dry runs in the past week.  With 3 days left before the presentation, and days of time that I couldn't afford to spend putting it together, this week will be busy.

On top of all that, I did sell a short story to Echelon Press Publishing.  I don't have a release date yet, but I've been asked to put together a marketing plan.  Here's the tagline I came up with:

Some temptations really are, to die for.
SINFULLY DELICIOUS coming soon from Echelon Press.

So what do you think?

Well, I hope you all have a less frenzied week than I.  I'll try to check in a few times.

Sending good thoughts your way, Freddy m'love. Sounds like your summer's gonna be crazy. I like the tag-line, though!

I like the tag line!

We Pittsburgh Stiffs are exhausted, too. In a good way, of course.

I checked in while I wait for one of my Powerpoints to load. Thanks all.

Great tagline! I'm brainstorming on mine tomorrow with a friend. :)

You have a busy few months. Get some rest!
