Vicki Doudera here, posting very late today, caught in the crazy rush that is a Maine summer.
There are only so many hours in the day, and in mid-July it feels as if I need double the allotted amount to keep up. Make that triple!
There are gardens that need watering, especially after the spate of 90 degree days we just enjoyed/endured; little dogs that require walking; Mothers That Need to be Taken to the Yacht Club for Lunch (at least once during the summer,) bug spray that needs to be bought at Reny’s; house guests that need to be waved goodbye to; beds used by said houseguests that
need to be remade; a magazine that needs to be contacted about a prospective writing job: a contract that needs to be downloaded so that it can be signed and a new book begun; and chickens that need more food and their favorite treat, sunflower seeds.
Mingle into that the dozens of emails that need to be sent to real estate clients; a contract that needs to be signed and shipped out; an earnest money check that goes to the bookkeeper; a photo that needs to be updated and uploaded onto the web; and a cute log home that needs to be viewed – a second time – by a first-time homebuyer and his girlfriend.
All tasks accomplished — except for the log home viewing which will be during the mosquito-happy cocktail hour.
The one thing that was neglected in the mix? Writing a scintillating blog post for all of you. Mea culpa, mes amies. I honestly would have preferred doing that to many of the things I DID do, but it just didn’t happen.
I leave you with my newest summer mantra:
BREATHE. BUT BLOG FIRST.
