“The best laid plans of mice and men often go awry.” – Adapted from a poem by Robert Burns

When I started this blog a few weeks ago, I set the goal to post twice a week, on Mondays and Thursdays. Until today it’s gone quite well. But here it is Monday evening and I am just getting around to opening my laptop.

If this had happened a few years ago, I would have found myself in a self-berating spiral of negativity. Thankfully, I have matured a bit since then, particularly when it comes to setting priorities. And today was all about appropriately placed priorities.

Tomorrow is my girl child’s 19th birthday. So instead of spending my morning hard at work, Mom Van and I hit the road to go see her at college. I didn’t want to let my To Do List take priority over time with her. She’s so much more important.

I’ll be back at it later this week, but for the moment, I’m going to relish the next couple of days of girl time. I hope you’ll take some time to enjoy the people you love too. After all, the To Do List will always be there tomorrow.
