I feel like I have been energized…. no idea why, but here I am popping up with a plan this morning that is tight but doable….
Yesterday went something like this…
6:30 am – up get ready, write a morning post, go to work
8:00 am – work… an assortment of duties, a meting, an insurance call about my accident this summer, several IHN calls for serving the homeless this week, another family of five entering the program bringing us up to 15 people…
noon: Still at work but multi tasking, planning more food for the IHN meal so it does not stress out my family doing the cooking, actually thawing the bbq while I am at work.
3:00 Pm – leave work and hurry over to where we are serving to set up five beds.
4:00 pm – run home to cook the BBQ beef and get buns out of freezer to go with this.
4:30 back to where we are serving, drop off food, grab van – go pick up guests
4:45 back at serving area with all guests, do orientation with new family, help my cooking crew with their meal set up and serving.
5:30 Activity people come in and while families are still eating I tour them through the program, introduce them, and help with kitchen clean up
6:20 take one of the teens serving to Band practice and then drive home
6:40 start making dinner for Al and I
7:00 pm we go downstairs to watch the recording we have of Amazing Race
8:20 pm – Al goes to bed… I start reading the book I need to have done for the magazine article.
11:30 – Done with book… jot down a few thoughts so I can write the review in the morning… off to bed.
This morning, review is written, I am getting for work, I work until 3:00, I am with the IHN program after work until probably 7:30 tonight after I do orientation with my overnighters tonight. Tomorrow, I am one of the overnighters.
Yes – crazy… but somehow it is juggling well and the light at the end of the tunnel is Friday afternoon I am done serving, my volunteers from that point on are repeat servers so really know what to do and I have the weekend to catch up on other life things… like Pride and Prejudice due to be read by Tuesday for book club. 😯
Have an awesome day!!!
