I volunteered to help the local public library raise some funds by doing my most favorite thing in the world – throwing a giant party. This one’s is kind of fancy, in that there will be wine and hors d'oeuvres and art. I’ve spent the last couple of weeks meeting with caterers and procuring wine and persuading artists and making guest lists and then licking envelopes. In the next week I will help make sure it all comes together into a smooth lovely evening for our community, an evening that encourages people’s wallets to just pop out of their pocket books and scream “Buy some art! It’s for a good cause”.
I am looking forward to next Sat. but I have to say I’m a little stressed this week and yes, my dear bloggies I have neglected you. I’ve been digging up old musings and posting photos and writing such wonderful classics as ‘Yeah for Corn” (sorry about that one). It’s just when you throw on top of the party; one overworked husband, one fussy toddler, one political disagreement, tax season, an association dinner, a parade committee meeting, a dinner in the next town over, a hair cut, and finding a dress - you can just stir it all up and pour it into a giant martini glass because that’s where I’ll be next Sunday.
I am enjoying most of this or I wouldn’t volunteer for it. But it’s hard when everything lands in the same week. So there you go, that’s my excuse for not posting anything earth shattering or pee in your pants funny, please stay tuned to see me blame my bad writing skills on way more mundane distractions, like “sorry I had to get the peanut butter off of the dogs head instead of blogging today”.
