I am not ready for April to be here yet. I want to go back to March..I want a do over. This is my last month of freedom before going back to work May 1.
I have been working on many projects.
I thought I was done scanning old photos and then I went and found more that I had tucked away upstairs. Then I found a bunch more of my personal old photos..when will it end.. all these odds and ends of photos.
I finished up the cleaning of the bathroom drawers and cupboards. It is nice to have some sense of organization again especially in the two drawers I use. I will super clean the grout between the counter and floor tiles one day this week it has been a few years since I have done that. ( Super cleaning involves a toothbrush and lots of elbow grease with a disinfecting steam finish. Then the grout is resealed..clean and fresh just like new.)
I have to make a new list of all the things that I want to accomplish early in the month, and then add at least ten days of lollygagging here and there to round out the entire month.
I should go shopping one day too..I think I need a new pair of red crocs..and a red sweater with pockets and a hood…something soft but warm.
I am not looking forward to freezing half to death in the unheated museum..so I am hoping that our warmer than usual weather continues into May. I have scheduled a day for the community to come together and help spring clean the museum and join us for a potluck lunch the first week in May. We will see how the community responds.
If I could have physically executed a cartwheel I would have done one when one of the Board Members donated a brand NEW shop vac to the museum..not a garage sale used up one that was certain to catch on fire..not one with only the big huge hose that was duct taped on and spewed dust everywhere if the hose was kinked…a brand new one in a box and everything..I was so excited I nearly wet my pants.
We have another fundraiser dinner coming up in April. Pre sale of dinner tickets could be better..but they are what they are. I cannot single handedly pre sell all the tickets for them. So far only a few people have returned their tickets..I sent them to everyone that was a member..and asked for their help selling them.
The Township Donation project that I implemented this year is having some good results. Checks are coming in and will continue to do so for the next few weeks..early indications are encouraging.
I put many hours into the Township project..most of which were donated hours. So I guess you could say that I work from home but only get paid for a small portion of my hours over the winter. Part of that is my fault. I had no idea how many hours email, phone messages, blog writing, programs, fund raising and research would take during the winter. Next year I will have a much better idea:)
