Convergence

Suddenly, a lot seems to be happening. I got the remaining work on my big project at work organized today and now have milestones to hit each of the next 5 Friday’s beginning tomorrow. This is actually a good thing because it keeps me on track with what I am supposed to be doing.

Tomorrow, I get my flu shot for this season. It’s a service provided by my work and it costs $15. The thing is, they only take checks. They don’t even take cash. But checks? Who uses checks anymore? Now I have to dig up my checkbook and see if I actually have any checks left. I know I need to order more, but I can’t recall if I have any left.

Tomorrow evening is a happy hour, a bunch of people from work going out to a yet-to-be-decided-location and I’ve agreed to go, at least for a little while. Battlestar Galactica is on at 9 PM, but I no longer have to worry about that because I now have a machine that watches TV for me.

Saturday morning I have a 9 AM service appointment for my Saturn. Officially it’s the 105,000 mile service. I’ve been pretty good about bringing my car in every 3,000 miles since I bought it 10 years ago, but this time, I’ve gone a little more than 3,000 miles since my last appointment. Not too much, but I wanted to get it in for service before my drive up to New York next weekend.

I canceled my workout with Bernard tonight and rescheduled it for Tuesday evening. That makes Tuesday a busy day, overall. In addition to my Tuesday evening workout, I have to stop at the polls on the way home from work to vote in the elections. Also, I already have 3 hours worth of meetings on my calendar for Tuesday.

It’s as though a convergence of a bunch of little things is happening in a short span of time, making it seem like a whirlwind of activity, when really, it’s nothing short of mundane.
