Schedules Seem Scary Sometime.
(posted for the A to Z Challenge)
S is for Scary Schedules.
Returning from an extended weekend trip, covering a major Midwestern equestrian exposition, I unpacked my stuffed suitcase and began sorting through paperwork. I started several loads of laundry and restocked the pantry cupboards.
We made our trek to the stables to stow our saddles and supplies.
Then it happened.
A single phone call transformed my smug satisfaction into sheepishness, as a medical professional revealed that I had missed an early morning appointment. How did that happen? How did I overlook something so important?
Have you ever scheduled too many commitments in a single day? Have you ever skipped a meeting or appointment?
Color me embarrassed.
Sometimes hurrying only leads to scurrying. Perhaps it is easiest to forget when we try to remember too much.
That’s why I like to make to-do lists. Now, where did I put that silly list?
Seriously! Do you ever feel as if your cart may be a bit overloaded, even if all of the contents are abundantly positive?
How easy is it to become a slave to the schedule?
