The Over Scheduled Life

March 10, 2007 at 9:51 pm 17 comments

An eagle was sitting on a tree resting, doing nothing.
A small rabbit saw The eagle and asked him, “Can I also sit like you and do nothing?” 
The eagle answered: “Sure, why not.” 
So, the rabbit sat on the ground below the eagle and
rested. All of a Sudden, a fox appeared, jumped on the rabbit and ate it. 
Moral of the story: To be sitting and doing nothing,
you must be sitting Very, very high up

Since I am not yet sitting very, very high up, I have to take a week off from blogging to finish editing THE BOOK, and catch up on the housekeeping.  The dust bunnies are beginning to grow teeth.  While I’m gone, check out this site by my friend Dale, very funny. 

Have a great week every body!

    I know you have been working with a doctor to put together a childrren’s book. I would like you to look at a manuscript for a boo explaining an eye condition to children. The person who wrote it is slowly going blind. She is not interested in making money but in helping others to understand. If you could send me the address of the publishing house we will send it to you. We won’t be upset if you hate it but atleast we’ll know.

    humm. When my dust bunnies get too abundant I post a sign: “Protected Area. Dust Bunny breeding colony, maintain your distance and do not disturb!”

  • 8. Stacy  |  March 14, 2007 at 3:23 am

    Good parable. I haven’t been around much lately so have to get caught up. Hope you can get things back under control.

    When I over schedule my life, I give up sleeping. Think I need to reassess my priorities?

    Kat, surely you know that its sods law that when you spend time catching up on one thing you only have to spent time later on catching up on the other things you left. Good luck though and you must publish your dissertation on Time Management…….soon.

    Most of us don’t sit high enough. Enjoy the editing, but let the dust bunnies live.

    Kat — talking over scheduled — I wore myself so thin that exhaustion claimed me and I slept right through my alarm clock this morning. I didn’t wake until 8:30 a.m. — a half hour after I would have been late for work, if I hadn’t realized I was exhausted and scheduled a day off.

The free-lance writer is the person who is paid per piece or per word or perhaps. (Robert Benchley)

Welcome to My Neighborhood!

Shortly after I learned to use a spoon, I learned to use a pencil. Crippled by shyness as a child, I found that the things I couldn't say out loud, I could say with a pen, and then a typewriter. The shyness was overcome with education and age...but the need to write has never left me.
