My god, this has been a day.
All kinds of crap with this professional association I belong to. It feels like they are dissing us, and I’m the person who’s in the position to deal with it. So I will, but it’s not exactly fun.
I think I have to do it in a way that’s not screechy. Or am I just thinking that because I am a complete pushover? I think I have to adopt a non-pushover tone — Some people are really good at this. They are just in your face until you give in. I’m going to have to channel those people, I think. Hmmm. Now that I think about it, I’m going to have to be strategic and non-pushovery and also non-screechy, but definitely firm as the Berlin Wall.
It’s a challenge.
However, on the positive side, I think we’re getting Christmas figured out. I think I may get M to come cross-country skiing with me before N and K arrive. This is a Christmas miracle.
And we’ve figured out a day to go see K’s brother’s farm, which I am excited about. I think it’s all going to work out.
And I got one rather horrible task done. Only three more before the end of the week, which comes on Wednesday.
All right, I’m going home now.
