The calm before the storm…

As I’ve been watching the coverage of Hurricane Katrina (my prayers go out to those affected by the storm), I’ve been feeling like I’ve been in that calm before the storm. Last week, I spent my time processing applications and meeting with people for the first half, and then… I looked for office furniture. For two days, my entire job was to look for office furniture. Yesterday I got to drive around the city looking for a microwave since we are one short for our families that we’ll be bringing in. That was a whole lot of fun too…

We started with 10 applications. We’re down to 5. We reopened the application process because we would like to bring in 4 quality applicants. I’ve been trying to call places and get our name out but social service agencies already have so much to do that it is difficult to get anyone on the phone, let alone be able to explain the program and get some referrals. So basically I sit here and wait. A lot. I watch people walk by to and from class at UNM.

The flip side to all of this waiting is what is on the horizon. We are closing on the apartment complex Sept. 9. Then we are moving families in that following Monday. Next week we have interviews, I have my first taste of being out on my own while trying to explain our program to people who might work for us for class credit. I’ll have to go shopping for food items for the families, and all sorts of other things. Next week will prove a bit more crazy than this week, and I’m ready for it. Here is hoping I can survive the storm.
