The last three weeks have been filled to the brim with activities and obligations. It’s the perfect storm of schedules.
My team at work continues to grow at a pace I’d never imagined – three new people in the last 5 days alone. Additionally students have been adding classes to their schedules, not dropping them as we typically see.
The result is a schedule that incorporates the needs and availability of 17 people to cover 70+ classes. It is the ultimate puzzle, and can be somewhat taxing to figure out at times. Add in the need to identify and account for substitutes as needed and it’s like standing in a tub of cold molasses while a tornado is whipping by.
Kids have doctors appointments, pets need to visit the vet, and somewhere in the midst of it, I need time off to care for myself.
My poor blog has been sorely neglected, tucked somewhere between ‘I really need to’ for others and the longing of a writer’s mind crying out to string words together.
Soon I will be back in gusto – plans are in the works for me to regain a greater balance of life, love and work.
