I've been thinking lately about revamping the blog. It was created, you might remember, early in my graduate program as a class assignment. I was rather worried about how I was going to get it all done and still manage to be an active volunteer.
Then I finished school, folded in the 50 Book Challenge stuff I'd been doing on LiveJournal and talked a lot about traveling for work and getting my finances together.
Not the theme of the blog. Last night, though, I had a moment.
Sigmund, my Foster Grey, has spent a few days with another volunteer (more on that later). It didn't go very well and she and I agreed that she would bring him back to my house in the morning. After we hung up, Kay said:
"Why don't you just go get him now. It's still early."
My answer was:
"Because I tomorrow night, I am going to the Refuge to pick up Joker. Wednesday, I am going to the Refuge for my regular night. Thursday, I am going to the close down the Refuge and go to the Library. I have two meetings on Saturday and am leaving town on Sunday. I would like to just sit here. "
And make a Project Linus blanket, but whatever.
But that is when it hit me - I have a lot of balls in the air right now. And I am managing them. But seriously, there is nothing like a puppy to make you look at everything and feel tired.
