Found and lost time

I had a schedule filled with zoom meetings. My tophat and I were ready. My screen was filled with windows. My browser was filled with tabs, and my physical notebooks opened to the correct pages.

Without warning, one got canceled about an hour before it was to begin, just as I was about to start reading through the latest versions of the materials.

Suddenly I had “found time.”

It’s too late to uncancel, I’ve taking my teddy bears to a picnic.

The time of the itself and all that prep time. This is a double bonus as most last-minute cancelations happen after I have already finished my prep.

At the very last moment, it got uncanceled.

The meeting went ahead without my having one prep, and as a result, we didn’t accomplish everything we would have if I had prepped. I found it frustrating and will need an extra meeting.

Perhaps I shouldn’t let people uncancel. Spend quality time with the bears instead.
