????

Aline and I have lamented this fact before, many times, but it keeps coming up. I need to vent a little bit I guess...
Why does it seem like I am the only person in the world who is able to be flexible with my schedule and re-arrange things to fit with other people's schedules? Is it just that I am an organizer and a planner, and therefore have the ability to do so? Is it that I am so much of a pushover that I let people dictate how I spend my time? Do I want to please everyone so much that I do so to my own detriment? I don't understand it. I do recognize that plans change and one has to be flexible. It is frustrating when such well crafted plans get thrown out the window, though. I can't help but feel a little disappointed when that happens.
Best laid plans of mice and men... C'est la vie...

AMEN SISTER. AND just to exemplify the fact -- I am sitting in my office on a Saturday morning waiting for a visit from a Hong Kong sommelier who was suppose to be here 20 minutes ago for a tasting!

I am rereading your posts this morning (okay, I admit -- catching up as well) and came upon this one. In my head I said to myself "Amen sister", I clicked on the comment button and guess what -- it's exactly what I wrote back in September.
