>Project notes

>Brightly colored sticky notes are strung along the shelf edges on the hutch above my computer monitor. I’d been having trouble keeping track of all my different projects, so now I write each new project on a sticky note and post it in front of my work area.

I just posted the 21st sticky note. It’s definitely time to finish some projects and start tearing down those sticky notes!

The sad thing is, when I look at them, there isn’t a single one I can complete and take down today! Some are quite simple, but involve work I can’t do today. Most will take a lot of time and effort.

This week I’ve been doing a lot of correspondence for various projects and scrambling to meet deadlines. One of the deadlines that sprung on me was taxes.

I know taxes are as certain as death and as predictable as the sunrise, but I thought I had some time. For weeks I’d been thinking that I didn’t have to rush for once since, for the first time in something like fourteen years, I didn’t have to work on college financial aid information for me or any of my four children.

When I woke in the wee hours of Tuesday morning and couldn’t get back to sleep, I suddenly realized that our college daughter (who graduates this May), will need to sign her return before she leaves for Rome next week.

Crunch time.

This morning I faxed the necessary information for her return to the tax preparer. But I can’t pull down the “TAXES” sticky note yet because we still have to work on ours.
