Hack! Hack!

Feel like a cat with a hair ball this morning. Still, I’m fairly well rested and ready to go earn a couple more dollars.

DGS made a huge bag of Reindeer Poop yesterday evening so I’m taking it to work and they can send some ROTC cadets up to bag it and get it ready for the fundraiser tomorrow. I deliberately tried to avoid saying I’d do everything for this fundraiser and, as a result, no one is quite sure what anyone is doing. I keep getting emails and I just keep saying “I don’t know. My job is to make and bag up Reindeer Poop and make customized clock faces. I’m supposed to be there from 9:00 to 12:00.  Other than that, I don’t know who’s doing what.”

We had 200 shiny silver alarm clocks donated from some company but they don’t have any faces because this company makes customized faces with photos and stuff on them and they discontinued doing it.  You have to take the plastic face off and make the face with the numbers, insert the face, attach the hands over the picture of the numbers, and then reattach the plastic face. Now they’re asking if I can cut all the faces out and attach them. Nope. Sorry! I think making all the damn faces on the computer and printing them all out on photo paper, making 5 gallons of Reindeer Poop, and working the fair from 9 to 12 is more than enough. Still, I guess it’s in my nature to worry about things like this. It’s very difficult for me to step back and make someone else organize everything. I feel like I should say, “Send me ten kids, they can assemble the clocks. I’ll be there at 7:30 to set everything up. I’ll go to the bank and get change and I’ll cover the booth from 9:00 to 4:00.” I’ve gotten about 8 to 10 emails since yesterday asking how things are going to be done and who’s doing what.  I’m not going to fall for it. I’ve done more than my share and someone else can do the rest.  Kind of proud of myself actually… ;-)

GOOD for you! I am so proud of you Patty! You so did the right thing. You have done a ton of work towards this and do not need the extra stress. Plus I feel they just take advantage of your kind and giving nature. But that is just me. ;)

Good for you! You and I are a lot alike; I can’t tell people no either and usually fall into the position of the organizer. It’s hard work being so fabulous, isn’t it? ;-) How’s your arm feeling? You need to take it easy still, remember? So NO cutting!
