I was reminded yesterday about what’s really important in life and the need to be flexible when working at home. Thursdays are regularly a busy day for me, but yesterday I’d piled a lot on my to-do list. Along with the regular daily activities of posting jobs and an article on WAHS, social networking, and PR, I’d planned to write 6 400-word articles, write 3 to 4 thousand words of an 8000 word report due Friday, deal with my duties as an exchange program coordinator, and record the podcast.
After coming home from the gym, I sat down to do the podcast and was interrupted by call after call. Finally on the third interruption, I was getting pretty annoyed. I answered and my daughter was on the other end. The thing about 14-year old girls on the phone in front of their friends is that they can take forever to get to the point of their call. I was thinking she forgot her lunch or PE clothes or something. So, exasperated I let her know I was too busy for silly stuff and asked her what she needed. She said that they were on a code red at school because of a bomb threat and that she just wanted to say she loved me in case she died (don’t you love teenage drama?).
Even though I knew she was being melodramatic, I also knew that a bomb threat, while almost always nothing, was serious. I asked her if I was supposed to come get her, but she didn’t know. So I spent the next 30 minutes talking to the school district and trying to figure out if I’d even be able to pick her up. Would the police let near the school? Eventually I decided to go get them. While I felt that they were probably safe, the world is different than when I went to school. My mom-instinct told me to pick both my kids up. That took another hour because during a code red, the pick up protocol changes. Plus many other parents were there so it took forever.
Finally, I had both my kids and we were headed home. By that time I knew I wasn’t going to make a dent in my list. There was a time that I’d be tense and stressed out about that. But I’ve mellowed in my old age and realized while there might be some consequences for not getting work done, the world wouldn’t end. So I took the kids to the local bakery/coffee shop and we had a treat and talked. Now that my kids are teens, they are so busy, so it was nice to have time with them both.
When I got home, I completed one of the six articles, posted work-at-home jobs and an article on WAHS and that was it. I could have worked more last night, but Thursdays are my writer’s group, and I don’t like to miss it. That means today I’m busy again. My goal is to get this newsletter to you by 12:30 pm eastern…we’ll see if that happens. And I need to complete the 8,000 word report of which only about 300 are written. But if I’m late or don’t get it done, the world won’t end.
