DOUBLE EXPOSURE

By Shirley Hailstock

This is my second appearance this month. Unfortunately (or fortunately depending on your point of view), I had too much on my plate.




I checked the calendar but looked at the wrong week.  I thought my blog was last Friday and mistakenly usurped someone else's day. I apologize. Then as I saw there was none scheduled for today, my regular day, so you get to see me twice.





So, what's on my plate? I have a synopsis to get to my editor. I have a book to edit and get done. I have some promotion to do for a series I'm in. The list goes on and one.



My Calgon moment is last on the list. Hopefully, I can get to it if I'm not too overwhelmed. This time of year, the hours and days seem to speed up and certainly there will be a deadline or edits that back everything up. It's my fault for filling that plate too high, thinking at the time that I could do it, but never figuring in that life happens.

Life can be good. It's not always a struggle. This year, I had three bathrooms remodeled, my bedroom painted and replacements windows are due before Thanksgiving. You all know what a time-suck it can be when you open a wall.



However, when everything is completed and the contractors leave for the last time, the place looks new and wonderful and I'm inspired to get back to task. It's the same with a book. When the final chapter is written and the words THE END look up from the page, that sense of wonder and accomplishment returns.

I'm working on my list, ready to cross out the things that have been done today and go on to the next line item. What's happening in your life? Do you esitmate correctly and get everything done on time or like me do you overfill your plate and work to get things done on time?

I hope you do. Keep reading. . .

  1. I loved reading this amusing post, Shirley, and seeing you twice in a month is good, too. I’m madly working to a deadline as well and find my estimations sometimes off. There are always those unforeseen events. One question...your Calgon moment? 🤔🤔. :)

    1. You're telling your age and mine. There was a product called Calgon. It made bubbles for a bubble bath. The woman relaxed in the tub while chaos went on outside the locked bathroom door.

  2. Seems it's deadline central around here. Good luck with yours--love those Calgon "take me away" moments anytime. Sometimes I get caught up in deadlines and long lists and then I remember how fortunate I am to have them! I always sense you feel that way, too.

    1. I do feel lucky to be doing what I love. And how boring life would be if everything went right.

  3. Shirley, seeing you twice is always a treat and I love your posts. YOU do have a lot on your plate. Make that a platter. I am one of those people who seldom procrastinates. And if it looks like I've come in at the last minute, it's usually because someone ELSE didn't tell me about a project or due date and then I'm caught between the ….and the ….. Anyway, I'm whacking away at my Christmas and Thanksgiving projects. Packing for a trip and finishing up a new proposal. And of course, promoting my November release. I'm off to a book signing today. Happy Thanksgiving to all!

    1. I used to be organized, did my Christmas shopping and setup in October. Then I had kids and nothing was ever the same.

  4. Double Shirley, yay! I envy you in that I need to remodel bathrooms and paint, and I will, eventually, but you've done it and have the beautiful new bathrooms to show for it. Hope you get that Calgon moment tonight.

    1. I was going to do the painting myself. I thought about the smallest bathroom as a DIY, but another writer friend pointed out that I would never have time. I did manage to do three bedrooms and my office. Then threes went by with me saying I was going to do my bedroom. Finally, I hired a painter and the room was done in three days.

      Now for that calgon moment. Maybe a shower instead.

  5. Loved seeing you twice, Shirley! And I knew exactly what you meant by your Calgon moment. lol

    1. Since I have three new bathrooms, I should at least christen the tub. So far, all I've done is clean it.

  6. How pretty you and your "twin" look, and it's good to see you twice. Good luck on reaching that Calgon moment.

  7. Your post cracked me up, Shirley. I'd take the Calgon moment first thing in the day so you don't run out of time. Good luck on edits and the synopsis.
