I love you all, and I hate seeing so many of you having rough times right now...please don't take it personally if I don't comment on your "my world is falling apart" posts. I want so very badly to be there for my friends when they hurt, but I am absolutely wrung out from waiting for news about Chukka (and redstreets
, thank you for taking the time to come up to me and ask about her at the meeting today), trying to maintain the balance between optimism and realism on ePlaya - and still upholding all of my responsibilities in the rest of my life.
, I'm in meetings every weekend from now until the 4th of July; no doubt I'll have to schedule additional time with my division manager (and possibly other execs) for Westercon, as I desperately attempt to get myself brought up to speed on a convention that's less than two months away. I'll be shadowing lokiz_mom
as best I can at Baycon, in addition to trying to figure out when in hell I'm going to get off-site to pick up party trays for tas_baycon
, because we're not
going to have refrigerators in all the rooms after all - and then I get to help RUN the party, too...and fuck, I still need to ORDER the damn trays (and a cake)....
Trying to figure out the treasurer duties for my TOPS chapter continues to be an uphill battle - and it got even more fun last week, because we had two new members sign up. So now it's deposit that check, write another check, mail that off with the forms...all while I'm still trying to figure out the last treasurer's bookkeeping system, because it's clear she had
one, I just can't make head or tail of it.
I took a deep breath earlier this evening and wrote to my Burning Man boss, telling him the additional duties I was supposed to be taking on this year simply require more effort and energy to do properly
than I have to give right now. "I'm still your paperwork bitch," I told him, but I was supposed to be taking that to the next level this year, and I just can't.
So don't be surprised if you don't hear a lot from me over the next few weeks-to-months, okay?
