growing pains...

Gosh I'm bad at this. I was getting so much better....and then June practically killed me.

But I'm back. No worries :)

I'm a boss. Did I ever tell you that?

And I don't mean like "Dude...she's boss"....I mean I'm actually a boss. Like I have thirty daycamp counselors that report to...well, me...and, on average, 120 kids to worry about every day. I'm a boss.

And I don't like it.

Don't get me wrong...I'm so grateful to be where I am. It's a great opportunity and I'm learning a lot. The thing is, that's kind of the problem.

Lots of learning...means lots of....blah. That's the only word for it.

I have to be confrontational...disgusting.
I have to handle budgets and finances...gross.
I have to be nice when parents aren't...fantastic.
I can't hand off questions. I'm the one that gets handed questions...wonderful.
I have to be a grown-up...sick.

It's hard stuff this grown-up business.

I have a feeling the end result is going to be good. I'll like it. I'll be happy about that.

It's just the process I'm not so keen on.

Any tips for the transition into adulthood? I could use a little help :)
