It's all relative

I've been giggling a little these past few weeks (in between the cursing) as I work on coordinating my local chapter's writing contest.

The source of my amusement: the number of compliments I'm getting on my organizational skills.

I do admit that I like figuring out and setting up systems (even if I'm not always great with follow-through) and I got a system mostly figured out for the contest this year. I also admit **Maureen pats herself on the back** that it did go quite smoothly (so far) compared to some prior years... But why this is funny to me is that in my previous career, I had a reputation as a disorganized flake. (Okay, I may be overstating... but that's how I felt.)

Guess it's all relative. Now, I'm the slightly square writer, but before I was the artsy/flaky accountant.

The sheer volume of the work and the spreadsheet you did impressed the heck out of me.

We're all so tight with our time that I often think time is the greatest gift of all. So, thanks for your time!!! when you could have been writing.

You did a great job with the contest, but you know what that means...expectations you'll carry on next year.
