First of all, I want to thank you all for the wonderful messages of support. They were really appreciated and I am very grateful for everyone's thoughts. Part of the reason that I'm down in the dumps is that it is proving to be very hard to get volunteers this year for the FLTAP Trainer's Listings. A couple of the stalwarts have, because life has gotten in the way, been forced to drop out, or seriously curtail their involvement.
There's always some flux, but the loss of these two, and the fact that a couple of others have not responded to my email, means that we're seriously shorthanded. So far, this year, there are only three of us. We can function with that number, but it will be very hard.
So, please forgive me if I don't show up on your blogs for a while. I'm OK, just kind of gob-smacked right now. The Trainer's Listings mean a lot to me, perhaps a little too much. It shouldn't take me too long to get back to my usual cheerful self. I think of myself as a glass half full kind of person, though right now it is looking seriously half empty.
