This week has been insane. The launch date for our gorgeous new Sweetmama site got pushed up a week, or so I learned at 2:30 on Thursday. My content for the site is now due Tuesday. I got up from my desk, hyperventilated into a bag and then moved forward. So this weekend, Labour Day gets a new meaning.
I knew this would happen. This is kinda how I work best anyway -- under major freakout conditions. It's the only way I can harness my ADD and focus: With the fear of failure at my door. Then I bust my ass and usually end up losing my voice right before we go live. I don't know why this is, but it was the same when I worked in film & TV; I would lose my voice right before we went to camera. Bizarre.
Now that it's all coming together and my editorial calendar looks like a pretty mess of colour-coded slots that are finally filled in, I feel a bit better. But I can't rest on my laurels just yet.
So I am waiting to hear if Mike Holmes will answer any of your questions. (Remember that? That was forever ago wasn't it?) But the winners of my question contest are: Blogueuse, Refinnej, and mfk. Email me and I will send you your prizes!
Now for a new contest. Do you have questions of any of the following?
- a preschool expert
- a children's shoe expert
- a nutritionist
- a maternity wear designer
- a pregnancy and fertility expert
- an etiquette expert
Have a great weekend! Tomorrow, I'll be procrastinating by answering a meme that my new friends the 3 Giraffes signed me up for. Now excuse me while I go breathe in a bag again.
