Life on auto pilot

The weather has cooled down but I have not been able to jump back into this blog, life right now is crazy. If you are a regular reader you know recently I was looking at my Dad possibly becoming homeless. Well he is technically homeless now but my brother is putting him up but on the bright side he is getting his extended unemployment benefits. What a shame the cash couldn’t arrive before he was turned out onto the streets. Talks are still underway to make Maine my Dad’s new home since living close to me would be the ideal situation. However there are many details to work out.

Add to my stressors  my day job where I am running a school supply drive to assist community kids. This type of endeavor normally requires more than the 4 weeks total I have to make it happen but it will get done. Never mind that while I have landed several new grant funders each one comes with their own requirements and believe me some of them are enough to make me scream. Don’t get me wrong I am thankful that my little agency is growing ever since I took the helm as director almost 2 years ago but turns out being the boss ain’t all it’s cracked up to be.

Throw in the fact that in 20 days my son starts college and then a few short weeks later the kidlet starts school and well you have a sista who is living on autopilot. Today’s post is more for me to let it out as opposed to saying something witty and entertaining but if you are wondering why this space is quieter than normal it’s because I am juggling a whole lotta balls in the air and trying not to drop em. Now excuse me while I sip on this chardonnay before I go to bed.
