I feel like I was stood up...

So I am feeling weirdly discouraged. I have been working for about a week to prepare for this big event at work. Lots of writing, researching, etc..to prepare one of our members for this big presentation. Felt completely organized, totally prepared, was psyched. The event was this morning. I meet with our speaker this morning at dawn (yes, I actually got up pre-dawn to jog this morning - 8 minutes 2x! yayy for me!) went through all the prep..expected q&a's, etc. We were good to go. Get to said event, event starts, and about 30 minutes in, gets cancelled. For weird reasons, that are sadly, legitimate. I feel like I got stood up by my prom date. Now I'm all dressed up with nowhere to go.

I'm sorry, hon...I know you were all dressed up and ready to go. I wished I had been as prepared for my meeting this morning and yet mine goes off reasonably well and yours gets pre-empted before your speaker can dazzle them with the info you prepared.

On a side note, if you handled the 16 min of running with the 5 min "break" in the middle, you should handle Friday's 20 min alright.

That's too bad :( It's so hard to work really hard for something only for it to not happen. I'm sorry it was cancelled :(

That is too bad! Sorry, that you got so ready, only to have it cancelled. Thanks for your comments on my blog. I read them all. I hope that doesn't happen very often. It would be hard to get so prepared only to have it cancelled.

Awww...that sucks. I'm sorry. I know how much of a let down it is to spend so much time on something and not have it happen. :(
