Seeing as some of you are starting to ask, I figured I’d take a few moments to fill you all in that the spelunking coordination is all falling into place.
The craziness I knew I was getting into from having people who were more into the spelunking than the coordination thereof doing this job for the past six months is exactly as bad as I thought it would be. After two days, I think I have 60% of it under control.
That included filtering and deleting 2445 (and no, that’s not an exaggeration) emails dating back to February 2004. Once that was done, there were still 86 left that required follow-up. I got all but about 20 of those done. And Learn to Spelunk for June is full.
I start my own Spelunking lessons next Tuesday, and I’m very excited about it. I may end up crashing on the couch in my office though. And that really reeks of desperation for sleep – because that couch is NASTY.
As crazy as it all is for the moment, I’m so very much happier than I was at my old boring job. I just need to hire a maid and a chef, because the dishwasher is full of clean dishes, and the sink full of dirty ones, my bed hasn’t been made in a week, and 12 cookies and a fish stick does not a healthy dinner make.
