So busy, busy....

Work was interrupted today as a notice of cheap flights to Melbourne came zooming into my inbox. I had been waiting for this. I have a hotel booked in Melbourne - Australia - for the ARRC convention in February. See the logo on the left side. Anyway I had been waiting for the right fare. I saw it today. This meant downing tools and booking on line. But first I had to ring the Novotel on Collins in Melbourne to re-arrange bookings, ask dumb questions and then get them to send me confirmation. I like everything in writing. A big thanks to Lance at the Novotel for not losing his mind, being polite and retaining a sense of humour as I rang him twice to annoy him. So then I booked the flight. Done. Then I had to re-arrange my leave as I had taken extra time off than I needed as I wasn’t sure what I was doing. So, new forms had to be filled out. I also had to chat to online friends and wander aimlessly around the room gossiping – all while attempting to look like I was working. Damn, I’m good at that. So - busy, busy, busy.

I leave you with these wise words from Cindy Lauper –

She bop, he bop, a-we bop, I bop, you bop, a-they bop, be-boop, be boop-a-loo-bop.

I think we can all learn something from that.
Go ahead: Live with abandon. Be outrageous at any age. What are you saving your best self for?
