I generally have a mental checklist of things I have to do swirling through my brain. To keep the swirling from evolving into churning, I try to do things as they pop up so I can cross them off the list. I have lived by the adage of never touching a piece of mail twice (if you pick it up, you deal with it) for many years and it has served me well.
There has been one item on my list that never made it to the top of the list, but remained on the list for the last (gulp) four months. When Suzy Soro came to stay with me for BlogHerAdjacent, she brought me a t-shirt. A t-shirt I really wanted. A t-shirt that showcased her blog. A t-shirt, that once I took a photo of myself in it would provide me with a slot on her sidebar.
Naturally, with that kind of pressure, I wanted the photo to be a good one (also because I'm a bit vain). For a good photo, it's best to have another person man the camera.
Tonight I saw my opening. I showered late, I had makeup on, Social Butterfly was at home and the light outside was mellow (and therefore kind).
The stars were aligned.
So I put on my glitziest chandelier earrings and my t-shirt and handed SB the camera. SB kindly gave me approximately 13 seconds of her time for this silliness.
