As anybody who's worked with me in the past must know I really enjoy setting up systems to solve problems. Over this past week, with Lisa away, I've discovered that many of the things around the house that I assumed I could not do were simply things I hadn't yet figured out a way to do.
It's very liberating. Suddenly I'm confident I can handle just about anything that comes up. I may need to lie down two or three times in the course of, say, vacuuming the apartment, but I'm sure most people would not regard that as unusual. The lesson I'm learning each day is "Work Smart and Know Your Limits."
And speaking of "Limits" ( and "Work"... and "Smart") Lisa has finally come up for air in the midst of her project in New York. She was out of touch there for a while owing to: 1) a drowned cell phone. 2) Staying in the last hotel in America with no wi-fi. And 3) an all-consuming job which had her working 31 hours in a 48 hour period last weekend.
That's one huge project deadline down but I'm sure another one is just around the corner.
By the way, Lisa's cell phonebook was irretrievable so, if you were in there, you might want to give her a call sometime so she can capture your number (or send her an email). Her number has not changed. Just don't expect her to answer the phone, though, she's working in a cell phone-off environment.
