this is that time when you're not quite there yet, and the list of things to do looks as long as your arm, while the time in which to do everything is ticking away. part of it is fatigue, I'm sure of it. the various setbacks loom large, especially late at night.
the thing I need to remember is that it is always challenging, and also always rewarding - at least, it has been for me. that, and that I am ultimately in charge of my own experience... which is not to say that I can control (or even influence) outside events, but it is up to me to decide how to deal with what happens. which is a toughie, for sure - but it is the key!
actually, I know we'll make it. we have two and a half more days, and things are coming together. we're also officially off the hook for transporting the rescue ratties, so that eases things up just a bit as well.
