Hey folks:

As you probably already know or have observed, we are very, very shorthanded when it comes to volunteers of late. So, taking care of everything we need to with the organization, including direct service, has been tough.

Unfortunately, I am now almost entirely useless due to a dental emergency, amongst other things. I've been down for the count with it all weekend, and am finally able to get a dentist who can see me tomorrow night, but I suspect I will need oral surgery, which typically means a few more days of pain and days of painkillers, both of which will make me unable to do most work, certainly direct service.

So, to avoid one person or one person with occasional help trying to manage the boards at their usual pace alone, which is often simply too much to ask, we thought we'd just prepare you for longer wait times with answers this week, and likely less involved conversations with our staff and volunteers.

We're always sorry when we have to do this, as we very much pride ourselves on answering direct services like this faster than nearly any other service online, but unfortunately, this is one of those situations where our lack of help and resources makes it impossible for us to keep up our usual pace.

We hope to be back to that for all of you next week, and apologize for delays during this one. We very much appreciate your understanding and patience.

Do get well soon, Heather, and take care of yourself.

Thanks, y'all. As you've probably noticed, I've been in for short periods of time: can be here when I'm not taking the pain medication, so have been trying to work when I can.

Alas, I do still need the pain medication and it makes me sleepy and stupid for a considerable period of time, so I'm afraid that it'll probably still be a few days before I can be back wholesale.

Take care Heather, I hope you get well soon.

Always knock before entering my room when I am in there alone, as I may be doing all sorts of wonderfully thrilling things that I'd rather you didn't see.
