THOUGHTS : TASSAJARA

So now that I have been accepted to the work program at Tassajara I am filled with emotions. Surprise, surprise right?!  I would classify this emotional cocktail mix as excitement vs anxiety. When I got the call Saturday morning that I was accepted, the woman made sure to clarify that this was work and not a vacation. She was worried I wasn’t aware of how much manual labor it involved. I assured her I was totally aware and prepared.

After the conversation ended I hung up and thought…”Oh Shit, Kate…what did you get yourself into?” It made me think back to when I was applying for the program and I read my mother the list of possible responsibilities. They include…

Carpentry

Repairs

Plumbing

Electrical

Gardening

Painting

Cooking

Cabin preparation

and general maintenance work for the  community.

To which she said…”I don’t hear anything that you can do?”

Clearly, my own mother thinks I am screwed.

    The most brilliant part, I think, is that there isn’t anything on that list that you can’t do! I’m excited for you!! xo
