I would like to give you pictures of the landscaping projects that are in process – – or have been accomplished….
Or show you how high the Jerusalem Artichokes and Sunflowers are, or how beautiful the fantabulously drought-tolerant Golden and Burgundy Amaranths are –
Alas – despite my best intentions, I had little website work in June and now, 3 sites to get up and out for approval by end of next week – –
An existing customer called a few days ago and asked for some documentation for their funding resource – seems what I previously provided was impressive in it’s low cost, but they’d like to have another meeting and have new pages that are clearly marked as to which phase we are doing when – –
They are dragging their feet – says I – They’ve had this information since April – – You continue to pay out of pocket each month, as they ask for more stats, watermarked estimates, etc…..
This is why any business I launch is paid for by me – – -too much time/trouble convincing investors and the time spent jumping through their hoops could be put to good use actually BUILDING something –
Alas, I always gravitate towards business ideas that rely on my own brain, skill, know-how and existing tool set – – Not everyone is so lucky – there are those grand ideas that need funding for buildings, equipment, R&D, prototypes, etc….
Now that you know the history, my customer advised, part way through the conversation, as I added the required text to each phase estimate and cut/pasted the documents into one long historical document, for their printing convenience, he said,
“Well, you just have to deal with ID 10 TS’s”
And, swear to gawd! I did not get it until I wrote it down – – Sheesh! I need a vacation – – –
I realized I had once more slipped into Dereliction of Duty status here at WordPress when Sue left a comment to check and make sure she wasn’t missing my new posts in her email inbox and to make sure I hadn’t died – – Thank You, Sue! You make me feel so loved and cared for!
(Want to see amazing art and gardens? Check out Sue’s slice of cyberspace!)
And so, dear friends, neighbors and family here at WordPress – I’m once again working my tail off – trying to keep ahead of the curve ball and failing to take pictures of anything as I race from one project to another – –
But I’m doing my meditation and heat lamp treatments religiously – –
I’m only working a max of 14 hour at a time and making sure to get a good night’s sleep – –
And I’m slowly, but surely, implementing lessons learned from the past…
Except for how durn long it takes me to get caught up when I don’t log in and read every day!
Hope this finds you well and I’ll catch up with your world here soon – feel free to leave a comment, begging me not to leave 23 likes and 8 comments on your blog all at one time, at the end of July, when I can luxuriate in reading all day long once more …..
You ask and I swear, I’ll space them out to one a day – – 🙂
