I got a call from the nonprofit agency I used to direct. They've fired my successor and now they want me to help fix a mess and get things back on track. There are people I would really like to help, but I'm not sure I remember enough to be much help. My time is limited with child care duties, but we may be able to work out some other arrangements. Oh, my, I had not seen this coming. With one car between hubby and I and this agency being quite a commute, that will be a challenge. Wonder if I could find a carpool? I've gotten rid of most of my professional clothes and shoes. My hair is a wild mess. I know that looking the part helps. Don't think I could be effective wearing what I wear around the house.
One thing I cannot do is allow myself to get too stressed out, which would be very easy to do. I will have to do what I can do and let the rest go. Easier said than done. I lost much of my weight while I was working for this agency, although earlier I'd gained quite a bit working there, too. If I go back to work, even temporarily, it does not mean I have to gain weight, but I'll have to work hard to make sure it doesn't happen. It will be trickier to get my workouts and running completed, but not impossible. I will be sitting a lot more than I do now. I am sure the agency is struggling financially and there won't be much financial incentive to undertake this challenge. But I'm going to at least go and talk to them about it and see if there is a role for me in this renewal effort.
