What a busy day! This was the first day of back to normal in a long time. First, there was the endless days of sick kiddies. Then I got sick. Then, there was the week before March Break… the week I did laundry non stop. Then there was March Break. Now I am back to the reality of life.
I am playing catch up on projects… such as getting items for the auction for the Dancing with the Docs…
There is catching up on house stuff.
There is planning Josh’s 6th birthday celebration.
There is planning my weekend away at my writer’s retreat.
And there is always the laundry.
Today I went to various businesses and solicited items for the auction. Some said NO. Some said, “We will see.” Some actually said yes!
I am so excited about one of the items, if it comes to fruition. The CHE, the hockey camp that our boys go to, is working on getting hockey players to come for a hour boot camp. How cool would that be to work with a real NHL player? We are also hoping to snag some females from the Ladies Hockey Team… You know, they won gold!
It is very stressful to ask… well at least for me. I can see already that they are tuning me out … being used to give give and give… and yet… it is for a great cause… it is for our community.
I want to say… “Hey, listen to me… I know I am asking.. but it is for a GREAT CAUSE!“
It will all come together. I prayed each time I went into a place. So… I have to believe that God is in control and will help me get it done.
Today I got a phone call from one of the ladies running the writer retreat I am going to a week from this Thursday. I am a little intimidated. She called my blog “Cute”… not sure what that meant. On Saturday… we are in session from 8am-9:30pm. How will I handle that? Usually I would sneak out and play hooky for a bit. That would be too obvious… I am sure I will be so into it that I won’t notice the time… but just reading that send me into a bit of panic. This class will be longer than I was in labor with Josh… just by a bit!
I haven’t written in a while. Did you miss me? I was censoring myself.
It’s all good.
Some things aren’t worth losing hair over. Some things… are really best in God’s hands. Sometimes, it is time to move on.
It’s all good.
If you have an idea for the auction… or want to donate, please message me. I have a few ideas that we are looking for a business or person to sponsor. ie… a chartered flight to Montreal or Ottawa to have dinner and go to a game.
By the way, Welcome Spring!!!
