Busy week this week. At work and at home..next week isn’t looking real good either. Sometimes I just have to say “No” to the extra activities that suck the life out of me.
Far Guy is going to put some extra volunteers hours in this week. We have the Soup and Salad Luncheon fundraiser coming up on Friday. I have all the preliminary work done for it..but there will be interruptions selling tickets this week and I have several groups coming through and one huge project and several smaller ones to complete…and who knows what else will get dropped on my desk.
I have to set a deadline for accessions so that I can get them photographed, into the computer and all the paperwork done. I have a list of things in my head that must be completed..that list will go onto paper today..and the list will get posted for the Board Members:) I have also scheduled work days for them:) I have three days paid vacation coming yet this month..don’t know if I will get to take them or not. My daughter says “Just close the doors on your scheduled days off if no one will cover for you..they will get the message that they cannot push you around.”
There will be no newsletter this quarter. I do not have the proper program to write the newsletter unless I resurrect the old computer and get it to hobble through with the blue screen of death forty million times a day. The proper program was ordered back in July..and it is lost in the mail someplace.
Things could be worse. One of my long time since 1972 friends is having her leg amputated this week. What do you say to someone who loses a limb? Sorry about your leg..are you planning a memorial service for it? Since her husband is also an amputee ..you are now a matched set? You can get double the wear out of a pair of socks and shaving your legs only takes half the time? I know she will mourn her leg. She has put up a valiant 16 month battle to keep it having endured fourteen surgeries. ( Never..ever use a chair to reach something..get a ladder.)
I should be thanking my lucky stars to be busy, I still have two half assed good legs and a job and a husband who cooks every night and a good dog:)
