break, schmeak

What break?!?

I was thinking I needed a break this month, so that burn out wouldn't scorch me.  HA!  Didn't happen.  I won't go into details about what all happened, other than to say that I am really glad that I didn't try to maintain NAMI's meetings on top of everything else.

My guy did make it down this weekend and he had today off from school and work, so he is here today too!!  Although, he is slaving away, reading articles, preparing power-point (tm) presentations, and hard at work as usual, in some form or another.  But we did get to spend more time (together) than usual this weekend.

I think that I am going to see if I can set the start-up of the support meetings for April.  Then take March as the time to do the behind-the-scenes stuff.  Also, I am thinking about dropping the women's meetings, and just going with the general meetings.  AND I am thinking about cutting back on doing meetings every week in both towns, to doing meetings only on the 2nd and 4th Thursdays (or maybe even just having one meeting per month per town).

Any comments, suggestions, questions, feedback, input, advice, etc.; please feel free to comment or email me!!!


  1. I think your plan is a good one; I think you know yourself and your needs and I believe you are carefully considering and planning them out. Bet you will do well


  2.  I think you should do as much as you think you want/can do, not what you think ought to be getting done within NAMI. If you could hold down a full-time job right now, you would be, so trying to volunteer all those hours may be too much.  And ditto what Betts said.  I think you are doing great, whatever you do.




Thanks for taking the time and effort to let your thoughts be known!
