I don't feel like I have given too much to Erin fans lately. I have had short fuses on a variety of items in my in-baskets late, and a drop-dead deadline of next Monday, when Walter and I leave for vacation to New York and Boston. I always tell my students about how energizing deadlines are. Now I can testify to that truth.
I dropped 60 Erin Dream Lanyards off with Tracy this afternoon to take to Chicago for the CNCF Conference this weekend. I hope everyone has a great time. Jen, perhaps you can find some trouble even if Ellen and Shannon can't attend. If you can't find trouble, I'll bet you can find a lanyard!
I finished the rough draft of the Erin Dream Lanyard how-to powerpoint to send to Kristen for her upcoming 160-person lanyard workshop, and all the wire/lanyard hook starts. I still have to order and ship about 2000+ grams of beads.
I made it over the hump at Discovery Canyon vacation Bible school. I am Elaine's lackey in the storytelling room, and exhausted just thinking about it.
I started compiling the results of my health insurance research.
I have taken two loads of garage sale items to the church for the August 1 benefit to furnish a room in the new Twin City Mission's building. Do you have items to donate?
I lobbied my Congressman about appropriations for the Childhood Cancer Registry database.
I worked out with Erin's old soccer team last night.
I went to Han's birthday at Pump It Up in The Woodlands on Monday.
I used up all the tomatoes populating my counter tops by making spaghetti sauce last night and invited company over tonight to finish it off.
I didn't really mean to post this, because I have an exceptionally interesting observation to make about cilantro, but that will have to wait until another day.
