Considering almost two weeks ago I had never even heard of Donkey Roping, it sure has kind of taken over my life since I found out about it, well not just kind of...but it has....now that the Donkey Roping event has been cancelled, it has calmed down a little, but there are still emails to send people as the battle to save these donkeys and any other donkey for that matter that is exposed to this kind of treatment is far from over.
While dedicating my time to this cause, I had a lot of other things going on and I must say I kind of mastered them all, but I am really exhausted, physically and mentally. Being so out of my comfort zone sure takes a lot out of me. Doesn't help much that I haven't had a complete day off for what seems like an eternity ago, and I certainly miss making time for my friends and visit or go for coffee, but I managed to do that twice last week....yoo hoo! And it was great. If things would be the way they were, Summer would usually be my quiet time and I would get a chance to hang out much more with the donkeys, but it won't be the case this year, as I am working on so many different things that all have a deadline....ha ha deadlines...never had those before....or at least not of that importance. But it's all good and it sure is a great confidence booster if you get to do all these things, so I am loving it. And wouldn't you know it the next volunteer orientation is already in a few weeks so lots of stuff to get ready for there, so lately my butt is pretty much glued to the computer chair. It's Sunday today and I am taking a forced day off....arrghh...don't like missing Open Days at the DSC at all, but I guess my body today said enough is enough and I will be spending my day in bed......I hate being sick, it's such a waste of time.
