To the brink and back again
Whoa - I am so overwhelmed with work lately. I want to call some of my fundraising friends and ask them if they feel like they are doing three jobs, as I feel. I was really at a breaking point yesterday, and I think I just needed - literally - a break. Jeremy was great to go home first to take care of Jack, so I decided to walk halfway home before grabbing the bus. As I crossed the Wabash Avenue bridge over the Chicago River, the wet snow pelting my face, I felt a bit of peace. Finally! A moment to myself that didn't include work or home. Crazy, I know, but it felt good to mix up the routine a little.
