Running around in circles



As I bask in the glory of this blog after having received 20,000 hits, my brain is suddenly running on EMPTY; and with the price of gasoline today, it may remain on EMPTY for quite a while!

The problem with working for a not-for-profit organization, or for any social service agency supported by government funding is lack of money; which means, of course that no one is ever gonna get rich working in social services.....

Which means we've lost another case manager.

Which means, for the sixth time in two years I've taken on the additional responsibilities of a second caseload of clients.

Which means, I'm working six day weeks!

Which means, the laundry isn't getting done......

Which means, the shack is being neglected.

Which means, I'm smoking more and enjoying it less!

Also: I have to finalize plans for my trip to New Orleans

I have to finalize plans for my trip to Las Vegas

I have to plan my trip to Canada before my family disowns me....
with a stop off in Boston before the Pobble disowns me!

BUT: I am finding time to read your blogs each morning and again each evening...... and I will comment!

I promise~

I was gonna be good and not mention it again having read that list but since *you* did... ;) And neither Boston nor I are going anywhere so take your time. Boston, the Ritz bar and I will be here when you get here.

I'll be so glad when you have time to meet another bike messenger and then tell us about it.

It is always the jobs that benefit other people never quite reach the compensation most deserving...teachers, social workers, fundraisers, etc.

Truly understand the work situation - I'm experiencing many of the same problems. Hang in there and hope it eventually gets beter.

This is not the way I expected to spend my "golden years" :)

15 months and counting down to full retirement!
