The fact that I donít ordinarily schedule any specific tasks for Wednesday doesnít mean that there arenít things I want to get done. What it does mean is that Iím more easily thrown off track. What it means is that if the Boss repeatedly interrupts me to, say, ask me to look up a phone number, itís likely to keep me away from whatever I was doing for longer than it actually takes me to look up the number. And what, heís never heard of Information?

Okay, so I was a little off my game today and didnít cope as well as I might have. Last night wasnít one of my better nights for sleeping, and I found myself up at my desk at 1:30 in the morning, working on the payroll that I thought I was going do this morning. Iíd planned to get up early and finish it, but not that early. It just wasnít working for me, leaving it unfinished like that.

It could have turned out to be a good thing, getting the payroll done in the middle of the night, if Iíd been able to get anything else done in the middle of the day. I have to admit that some of the interruptions were necessary, and we ended up sending out invoices for about three hundred thousand dollars, enough to pay quite a few bills (and salaries) down the road when we collect the money.

Tangled branches of the fallen birch.

And I probably should have known it would go this way, but I was thinking like a guy whoíd been up half the night, and Iím sorry to say I kind of lost it. Iím hoping to find it again some day, but not tomorrow. Tomorrow is to-do list day, and unless I work all night again, I know what I have to do tomorrow. So what I was going to do today will get put off for at least one more day, and before we know whatís hit us, itíll be the end of the month and Iíll have deadlines to meet. I seem to remember that the end of February comes more suddenly than it does in other months, too.
