FedEx tried to deliver the letter today but there was nobody home to sign for it. Tomorrow is another day.
I love the internet and my Blackberry...I got an email from FedEx this morning at 7:00am my time saying that delivery had been attempted, but "customer (was) not available." Almost instantly I thought of a new scenario that might play out, what if he is on vacation? Eventually FedEx will return my letter to me and I have to **gasp** wait a bit longer and then try to re-send it. Crap.
The letter is now waiting at the nearby FedEx facility. Waiting for tomorrow. The letter and I have a lot in common today.
I was, at least, able to get some stuff done today. Because I knew very early on that today would not be the day that my Dad found out that his daughter was looking for him, I was able to take a deep breath, and go on about my business. I actually got quite a bit done today. I took care of some things that I had been putting off for a while. I took my son's letterman's jacket to have the letter put on and his name embroidered on the back, I called Sous Kitchen to let them know that they shorted me on my last order and they promptly took care of it by agreeing to send another meal my way this Friday (Excellent customer service).
I published an Employee Satisfaction Survey that I had been noodling on for several weeks. I had several meetings with people that needed to get done including getting my Q2 review from my boss. I did some research on salaries for a couple of positions I'll be recruiting for soon and I answered a bunch of emails.
Keep your hands busy and your mind stays busy, too.
