Things from a more distant memory space.

Really Busy and then Zap

I know I promised regular updates again, but after last post things got busy at work.  Working on reworking document templates and workflows and email templates and new processes, I haven’t had the brainspace to properly contemplate another blog post.

Hard Post

Warning: this blog post was extremely difficult to write, and took a while to make it into words.  I started writing this on Wednesday, September 9th, and I’m just pressing publish now.

So why do I not have all the pages I remember having, once upon a time?

Am I really going that crazy?  Or did I just think I got to these things and never did?
