It’s one of those days with a non-stop morning. Get the kids to school. No time for coffee before my first meeting, which ends mere minutes before, my next meeting, which then sort of continues into a coffee-based post-meeting meeting. I finally grab some lunch and take it back to the office, and try vainly to escape from my 2pm meeting, but no dice. By then I give up on the forlorn hope of catching up on the rising swamp of work that I’ve fallen behind on, and do my best to pick a few of the less fetid scraps.

And tomorrow’s not looking any better either.
