It always feels like I’ve just arrived. It’s my fourth month here and my fourth staffing combination. It’s a different group of people every month. With all that shuffling at home, there hasn’t been any real stability. Any rest. The latest change – Andrea went home to nurse a herniated disc and Regina arrived from NJ to work with us the next 3 months.
Since Andrea’s out indefinitely for her injury, I’m teaching all her classes. I’m also stewarding a new water treatment project. Where I once felt like I didn’t have anything to do, I now feel a bit overwhelmed. When it rains it pours, I guess. The water project is really the elephant sitting on my chest, though. There’s a lot of internal and external forces – political, financial, and otherwise – that’s putting the pressure on. Just hope I can handle it all with wisdom and grace.
