post sketches

Too busy to put together a proper post. BUT I thought I could maybe put a sketch of a post or two that I'm excited about. I don't want this blog to just be one big complaint that I'm busy. So here are some sketches:

One post that I would like to develop some time would be a post about how much I love buffalo wings, and also how I like jalepeƱo poppers except not when they have some non-cream cheese in them...that's all for that sketch.

Another post would be about what I would imagine would be by far the most embarassing thing...ever. And what would be like the 2nd through 5th most embarassing things...anyway, I'm looking forward to filling out that sketch as well. More posts soon!

The title of this post almost perfectly describes how I'm feeling right now: "Yikes!" is right. I am getting bombarded with comments on my posts and the hours and days are just sprinting past me. Please know that I will try my best to respond where appropriate.

Also, I don't have time to attach it here, but yesterday I saw an image on the internet that almost perfectly describes my life. It is a picture of some person with like 8 arms trying to do all sorts of tasks at the same time. I'll try to attach it when (ironically!) I have a little more time...More posts soon!

Internal Conversation

This is a (paraphrased) conversation I had with myself today. Sometimes I am surprised at the wisdom coming from the most un-likely of places, but I think it helps put in perspective my crazy-hectic schedule of late:

• Ben, it looks you sure have a lot of things on your table!
•• Well, things are pretty crazy-busy right now, that's for sure!
• Don't you have time to stop for a minute and enjoy life! A little bird (or was it a miniature bunny rabbit?) once told me that a crazy-hectic life does not mean a happy, fulfilling life. You need some time to see the beauty in nature, you need some time to really, REALLY listen; you need some "you" time.
•• I know. I know. I know. I'm sorry. I suppose I'm addicted to the ever-so-addictive drug of productivity. (I do love being productive and checking off my "dumb things I gotta do" lists!) But you're right, I need some time for me. To really sit back and meditate, to look at each day as a new day to discover the world and myself all over again. To laugh as a child. To skip through puddles on Spring days, and to meditate.
• Promise me something.
•• OK
• Promise me that when you work through these incredibly busy days, and hectic weeks--promise me that you will find some time to really, REALLY listen to others, and even to the songs of birds. And promise me that you will find some time to really get to know who you are. You so obviously need some "you" time.
•• You are so right.
• And guess what?
•• What?
• I promise you that regardless of how crazy-busy your schedule is, that your life will be more fulfilling and happy.
•• That is so true.


I have been getting lots and lots of comments on my posts lately. Please know that I APPRECIATE the support and it's really giving me momentum to get some posts up. It is also heartening to hear that other people are busy. But as I mentioned in a comment earlier, I thought I told myself when I was a kid NOT to let my life get crazy, hectic busy (sigh!)

Well, things have got to get done and I guess I need to get them done! (Meetings, phone calls, work, errands, cleaning, conference calls, etc. etc. etc.) I suppose such is the stuff a busy life is made of. REALLY, REALLY: More posts coming!

The routine

Errands, meetings, phone-calls, conference calls, planning, working, maddeningly fast growing in box...You get the idea. Things are as busy as ever...More posts coming soon though!

New tag line

I'm pretty excited about my new tag line: "Where all the suites are executive suites...sweet!" I really think this tag line is a harbinger of GREAT things to come. I'm looking forward to giveaways, contests, photo montages, and possibly revisiting robot poetry. Of course (and I hate that I'm saying this again) things will need to calm down substantially from the current busy status. Crazy busy just might be the understatement of the year!

Things should be calming down soon

So things should be calming down in the not-too-distant future. I'm so anxious to get to posting again. I have been thinking about possibly adding a tagline to the title of my blog among other things...but such will have to wait for a slightly less busy time in my life (that seems to be one hectic day after another!!!)

Bad idea

So I thought I should just outline a typical day over the last little while to give my reader(s) a sense for my hectic schedule. But then I thought that might stress others out. Bad idea. I'm looking forward to things calming down in the near future, but things are BUSY around here.

One word: busy!

Time has just gotten away from me. One word: busy!

AAAHH! Some wrenches thrown into my schedule

Unfortunately, some big events happening this week have thrown the rest of the day out the window. I will be traveling tomorrow, but I'll try to post something when I have a spare minute. I think I have some good posts in the pipeline, but today just got away from me. And I'm pretty sure I'm getting on top of things, so sorry that today has been so busy. More posts coming up!

Crazy busy!

I am so sorry I have neglected my blog, but things have been so crazy busy! I promise I will get posting again. Look for my new post tomorrow!
