SO Busy!

I've been SO stinking busy the past week! We have our community yard sale tomorrow, and frankly, I can't wait until it's over! My bedroom looks like an episode of Clean House! It's driving me nuts! I was so smart and volunteered to head up this sale. When I said I would do it, I thought there would be no more than 25 home participating. Boy was I wrong! We have more than 70 homes participating. Can you believe it? More than 10% of my neighborhood! Yikes! I had HUNDREDS of e-mails to read in the past 2 weeks trying to gather all of the information neccessary to put this thing on. I will most certainly think twice about volunteering for something again!

National Night Out just happens to be next Tuesday, and since I'm a Crime Watch zone captain, I had to help put this together as well! 2 major events within 3 days of each other. I'm not good with stress, so I've been a mess! Tommy's make-up soccer game just happens to be on Tuesday as well! Could they make it any harder for me!? He has pictures at 6:30 and his game starts at 7:15. NNO is from 6-9 so I have no hope of seeing Tommy play next week. I'm so sad about that! I love his games! Oh, on top of it all is my 10 year class reunion this weekend! I'm heading out to the game tonight, so wish me luck that I actually stay awake for it! Sigh...in 5 days it will all be over and I'll have a clean home, with hopefully a little extra cash in my pocket, and nothing major to do until Red Ribbon Week at Anna's school, where, I was so smart again and signed up to be in charge for Anna's class!

Wow... that really does sound like a lot! If you need help, let me know.
Did you graduate in '98? I knew we were close to the same age but I do not know that it ever dawned on me that we were in the same year in school. Just wondering. Anywho, good luck again!

You are going to need a spa day when this is over! I haven't done one thing to prep for tomorrow's yard sale. I'm thinking it's going to be a LONG night tonight! LOL

Thanks for the offer Randi! I've mostly got it together, I just hope I have the energy to make it through these next couple of days. I will definitely take Lori's advice and take a day to relax when this is all said and done! Oh, and yes, I did graduate in '98. I didn't realize that you did too! Cool.

Hmm, you sounds like you might be related to our mother. Good luck with everything.
