I’m one of the seva coordinators for the Fairfield satsang. This means I have, essentially, a part-time volunteer job. A job I’m not entirely sure I have time for. It’s only May and I’m already feeling overwhelmed – and I’m not even doing the bulk of the work, my partner is.
This morning, for instance, I finally booted up the satsang laptop. (I’ve had it for a week.) I need to edit the letter header because the old logo is outdated, print out the assigned seva letters in duplicate, add a layout for printing reports, assign sevas to a few people we haven’t done yet, and in general catch up. Sound fairly easy? Well.
I had to install print drivers on the laptop. Then I ran out of ink for my printer (of course). I’ve been working on this since I got up. I’m supposed to go meet my co-coordinator at one, but I haven’t even showered yet. So what am I sitting here blogging for?
Good question. I guess I just need to vent. I feel overwhelmed. I intended to finish prairieagcoop.com this morning, and I haven’t even cracked that yet. And, in an attempt to transfer files, I unplugged the printer from the laptop, which shut down Windows. Argh! Damn USB anyway.
I’m also the satsang webmaster, and I have two weeks’ worth of emails to go through – they all contain changes to the site. I needed to do that this morning too: but when? I also have to go to Christina’s and work on assigning sevas, visit the bank, buy groceries, and have dinner on the table at 6:00! And tomorrow through Thursday I work, and Friday… Basically, I’ve been doing website or satsang stuff on Mondays and Fridays, which leaves me the weekends for household work, and while I manage to find time for knitting I’m still behind on everything. I needed to have prarieagcoop.com finished today! And it’s 12:34 already!
