It's all about me

I am consumed with myself and my own little life right now.

I'm SO stressed but there is a light at the end of the tunnel.

Some of you know that I, along with a few really dedicated ladies and fellow officers, have been working, slaving and worrying about the upcoming fair that we have been putting together.

The count down has started.

We were there last night until 10PM setting up. Will be there this morning and this evening, then the final precheck starts at 7:30AM Saturday.
9:00AM -F Time! (Fair, Fair, not the other F word!)

We work until 5:30 or 6 PM and start again 8AM and go to 2PM and then it is OVER!!!

Believe it or not, during the Flu clinic that was held in the hall yesterday and one of the reasons why we couldn't start setting up earlier in the week, the nurse administiring the shots fell in love with one of our tiny fully decorated one foot trees and BOUGHT IT!
There was another church worker who saw the wreaths we made on the porch of the Priest's house (there's an official word for it, but it escapes me) where we were storing them and she fell so in love with one that she bought it immediately!!!

Anyway, once all was done last night, we all took a deep breath and looked at what we did. It looked AWESOME!!!

I can't believe how it all came together.
I just hope all the rest- the workers, the crowd and the donated food, comes along as well.

Wish us luck!!!

We're gonna need it.

Oh! And did I tell you that on the way to work yesterday, it suddenly hit me that I FORGOT to get two of the main raffle prizes?

The Night at the Movies for Four and the $100.00 raffle tree!!!

You can guess what kind of a tizzy I'm in. I was able to grab a $40.00 concession card and I'll pick up the tickets at an AAA outlet. Saves $8.00 when you do that. Then, off to a package store to get scratch tickets.
And I have to BAKE!

Yep, we're going to need the wished luck. I'M going to need the wished for luck.

6:04 AM - time to get the horde off to school and work.

Have a great TGIF everyone!

How did it go, Michele? Are you free?


Michele said...

Brandy! NO ONE REMEMBERED A CAMERA!! ARGH!!!! And yep, it would have been extra. I'll tell you all about it in a post.

Tanya! You got that right, it was a lot going on. Exhausted isn't a word, it's a state of being!

Robin! I went! For two days I went. I'm done. Now I'm planning to reclaim my house. Ack!

C.J. ! Hi!! It went great! Had some bumps, as all things with many chefs are wont to do. I'll visit your blog and comment. It's a treat having you visit my humble blog. Thanks!!!

Ohh sounds like you are having more fun than me. I'm glad things are going well fair wise. Are you spending most of your time posting here instead of on lj? My writing Group Romance Writers of Edmonton is located at . if you want to stop over.

Are you still up for being a personal critic for me?

A better question: How goes the preparations for christmas?
