The Universe...

...hates plans.

Idiot that I am, I am doomed to go through eternity making plans that will forever fail.  You'll recognise me in my next life ~ I'll be the gal who keeps making plans that never materialise.  Yes, I expect to come back as a female.  My wife thinks I was a woman in my past life and haven't "let go" yet.  I think if that was true, I'd be better at it.  So I think I'm practicing for my next life.

Yesterday, I wrote about maybe going shopping that day.  I underslept, so I got to work early.  I figured I could take about 90 minutes out of my day to run some errands (and shop).  Instead, I had too much to do to get ready for my customer visit today, so I didn't get out.

In the afternoon, I realised that I couldn't complete one key task until I got to the customer and received some additional information.  That meant I could leave a bit early and get my shopping done!

As I was about to leave, I got an e-mail from someone on the other side of the building ~ she was having a problem and asked if I could help.

I helped.

There went my shopping time.

Maybe today in MD, but my schedule looks quite full.  I don't think I'll be able to stop and shop, but... yes, I'm planning.

(by the way, that "Not Sorted Out" post was a misfire.  If you didn't see yesterday's "Short Term Planning" just keep reading).

  1. Keep planning and keep your eyes and ears open for any little opportunities that may arise.

    In the first instance so much of our CD related energies are in our minds and there is relief and release in just being able to think of potential dressing events.

    Second, you never know when an opportunity will arise and you have to be prepared.

    My wife and I just finished a short trip to Florida to escape the northeast winter. I stashed along a dress, a skirt, a top, a bra, slip and multiple panties along with a supply of pantyhose, a nylon nightgown, two pair of heels and a small makeup kit just in case an opportunity arose. It never happened but I took comfort knowing that if the situation permitted I would have been ready to roll.


My day is brighter when I hear from my friends!
