When I met my mom in St. Louis awhile back, she convinced me that my life was not complete without a Franklin Covey organization system. I agreed – how had I functioned for all these years without it?
So I picked one out,
Umm…yeah. April snuck up on me pretty quickly.
Booking a hotel room for the marathon was at the back of my mind, until today when I launched into total freak-out mode. The Illinois Marathon website stated that as of April 1, all hotels in Champaign were booked. Awesome, right? I headed to Expedia, who told me I would have to stay in Rantoul. Ran-who?
My next stop was Priceline. Dear, sweet Priceline. They somehow had a room – at a hotel whose name does not include the words “Super” or “Lodge” – in Champaign! Celebrate! Well, I think it’s actually Urbana. But either way! Celebrate! Apparently, I picked a good time to freak out, because as of tonight that hotel is GONE. A friend told me tonight she might stay in Bloomington, about an hour away. I’d prefer Rantoul, thanks.
And after that stressful lunch break, just for fun, after I had booked my room for Thursday night…
I got around to asking for Friday off of work.
Perhaps I should spend a bit more time keeping up with my organization system?
**After this incident, one must believe that I am most definitely skippping down that March to-do list to #5: Decide Re: Hotel in STL – July. Mom, if this blog hasn’t bored you away by now, call me soon!**
