I neeeeeeed this time away. Yesterday on my way home from work was the first time I've felt peaceful about my workload since the blizzard hit and put us so behind with days off. I have been so far behind, but for the first time I feel like there's light at the end of the very long tunnel - there's lots more to do, but I have it manageable now. Yesterday was a sunny, beautiful day - not so warm, but pleasant as I drove home from work with the girls snoozing in the back seat.
This is what my desk looked like Monday morning - there was that much mail and more in my box every day for the past two weeks. I finally brought a bunch home Tuesday night and spent two hours just opening it, sorting it, and filing it. I have actually had a sore spot in my shoulder from the repetitive motion of slitting opening envelopes with the letter opener!
This is the box full of partially completed application packets.
This is the drawer filled with completed files.
The next step is to send them all out to faculty for two readings of each one. It is a long, involved process. But we end up with a great class every year.
Thank you so much for stopping by and reading Kev's and my stories about our journey through his fight with addictions. The good news is - there's good news! We'll post our Part III editions early next week. If you haven't read them, please go to the one below this, and link to his.
