Life is Good!


One day of camp down for Jack, one productive day of work down for me. And then it happened: fever, chills, rash, red throat, swollen glands – SICK child! This was so not part of my plan. I have no doubt that the fast-moving beast that struck down my child came from another child whose parent decided no one would notice if their disease-infected child slipped into camp and spread the love. Note to that parent – karma is a bitch!

The good news is that as fast as this virus happened is as fast as I had Jack in to see the doctor to rule out anything worse, and then back home again to begin fever watch. And then it dawned on me; this is why I started my own company! No, not to take Jack to the doctor, but because I could take Jack to the doctor and not feel guilty or be afraid I was letting anyone down.

Meeting and managing client expectations is what helps drive successful business. When you work for yourself, it’s not just about client expectations; it’s about your own expectations too. I’ve never been in a situation where the only person I’ve had to answer to was myself. Strangely, when I had to run out to take Jack to the doctor today I still felt as if I had to email or call my boss. I guess I’ll always be a creature of habit.

Jack is hanging in there and will be on the mend soon (get well soon little man!), and I’m back to my productive schedule, having never missed a beat. Today I was a true working mom. Life is still good!
