Emails and snail mail.

Everybody gets so much information all day long that they lose their common sense. 
Gertrude Stein

I expect to get some reaction to the emails I sent yesterday to the different agencies, although it is possible that they may require a bit more time to think my request over. They may contact me for more information, although I was very precise in what I wrote and did not leave out any details. The snail mail I sent out will take a little longer to get a reaction to, also because carnival is around the corner and many places will be closed for a couple of days. I will try to exert the most patience I have and, in the meantime, try to think of more agencies to approach today. 

It is difficult to concentrate on anything else right now, although I must because normal life does go on and I must do my every day chores also. But in my head this issue keeps me occupied constantly and I have a hard time thinking about anything else. It is a good thing to go out for walks with Tyke regularly because that does cause some distraction. I do find myself paying attention to the traffic and my surroundings and to what Tyke gets up to. It is also nice to have a change of scenery and get a bit if fresh air after having sat behind the computer for a few hours. 

Since today is Friday, and I have no appointments on my calender, and no domestic help coming by, I can spend the day doing exactly the things I want to do and give those things my utmost concentration. I think the Exfactor is coming over for a cup of coffee and that will be a welcome break. In some ways, today will feel like a weekend day, but I must not treat it like that because I can still get lots of things done and other people are still working and approachable. They may not be in the mood to, and be ready for carnival,  but I will not let them get away with it. 

If I have ever done my best for a cause, then this is it, but this is a labor of love and tenacity. I will not say that it gives me reason to get up in he morning because I have that anyway, but it is the driving force behind many of my actions.

You have tenacity, Irene and that will take you far.

I really hope it gets you to where you want to be.
