National Cat Herders Day is actually tomorrow, but I have something else planned for tomorrow’s post, so I’m saluting chaos coordinators a day early. I’ve loved the expression “like herding cats” since the first time I heard it, and there are so many situations where it applies (my nieces’ birthday parties, my friends on a road trip, sometimes my team at work). So tomorrow we should all give a shout out and a thank you to the people we know who keep moving forward, and moving the rest of us along.

Come to think of it, that commercial reminds me way too much of my job on a busy day.
Are you a “cat herder”? Do you have one in your life? Tell me all about it.
