We are getting into the busiest time of year for my full time job. I now have two assistants instead of one, but here’s the problem. My first assistant is also our truck driver. (It’s a small company and we wear multiple hats.) My second assistant only works three days a week (due to school) and he leaves two hours before closing to go to his second job. And on two of the days he works, he takes two hour lunches because he goes to school during his lunch hour. So that leaves me without help a lot. Today, my phone has been ringing off the wall with customer orders. I FINALLY went to the bathroom and had two voice mails when I got back. The bathroom is next door to my office…I was only gone a short time.
Why am I telling you all of this? Because if I don’t visit your blogs as regularly as I usually do, it’s because I just don’t have time. It will be all I can do to post on my own blog. And I WILL answer all comments on my blog. I’m a big believer in answering blog comments when people have taken the time to comment on my blog. I think it’s rude not to answer, so I always do. If you’ve ever left a comment on my blog and I didn’t answer, it’s because I missed it somehow. But there are a lot of blogs I visit, and I’m just not going to have that kind of time right now, probably through April. I’ll try to stop by, but I don’t want anyone to think I’ve abandoned them if I miss a few times. So bear with me. Things will slow down eventually. I’m just happy to have a little extra help this year. 🙂
