Then there's the giant box from Oriental Trading Company. $400.00 worth of trinkets and trash. Parents have asked that there not be any whistles. I always happily oblige! I am also a parent. Usually alone in the tent ... with their children ... on a sugar high. Not in the far away beer tent where they are ... having fun. I doubt they'd even hear the whistles.
By Sunday it will all be over and the money will be raised and all will be happy and life will go back to normal. But for today, it's off to my class, then pick up Mom & Dad to take them to the airport for their trip to Europe, then on the the hospital to visit with Chris, then home to see my husband whom I got to spend a few minutes with last night when he returned from ..... somewhere.But look what I get to carry around today. Dogs, cats and yarn...three of my favorite things. Have a wonderful weekend. Wish me luck with all the kids. I'll see you there Connie!!
