|Mom at planning desk|
at 8877 West Gull Lake Drive
I think a lot about productivity and work process. For instance, this blog entry is two days late because I had final grades due for CTU, which kept me pretty busy the last three days.
I had already planned this entry on productivity despite the fact that today is LORI'S BIRTHDAY, which you well know and remember. But more on that later.
Though I do not have a huge calendar map of the year for my check boxes, I do have a to do list with check boxes for Hey Mom. I have featured the to-do list on the blog before, but in case anyone needs to see it again, the picture is below.
According to my records, which are more or less accurate, this is my 222th week of to do lists in this form, which is over four years.
The content below on Seinfield's "chain" reminded me of my blog posts. Tomorrow will be the 400th Hey Mom post. Already this blog has more page views (45,807) than the T-shirt blog (42,627).
I had planned to end the Hey Mom feature's DAILY transmission after 365 posts, but my sister encouraged me to keep going. Though I am staring down a three day deficit right now (as it's Thursday 8/11 and this is the post for Tuesday 8/9), I have only ever been six days behind at a maximum and that was an extreme outlier (one time). Usually three days is about normal when final grades or some other work thing strikes.
But now, my blog hums along more efficiently with Monday devoted to music, Wednesday to poetry (or some creative writing thing), and Thursday dedicated to the talking and Throwback, I only have four days of other content to generate. Often this content is other people's re-posted. Sometimes I re-post t-shirt stuff (there are 365 of those after all and clearly fewer have been looked at than these posts). But I manage a fair amount of original content.
For now, I am chugging along for you, Mom. In tribute, in testimony, in memory, and in an active process of continuing our conversations. You listen politely and radiate your loving spirit.
I still feel you, Mom.
All the time.

Reflect and connect.
Have someone give you a kiss, and tell you that I love you.
I miss you so very much, Mom.
Talk to you tomorrow, Mom.

NOTE on time: When I post late, I had been posting at 7:10 a.m. because Google is on Pacific Time, and so this is really 10:10 EDT. However, it still shows up on the blog in Pacific time. So, I am going to start posting at 10:10 a.m. Pacific time, intending this to be 10:10 Eastern time. I know this only matters to me, and to you, Mom. But I am not going back and changing all the 7:10 a.m. times. But I will run this note for a while. Mom, you know that I am posting at 10:10 a.m. often because this is the time of your death.
