Here in status symbol land... In case you don't know, those are lyrics from an old Monkees song. Yes, I used to love the Monkees! In fact, when I was in the hospital after having my now-nine-year-old daughter, the very first morning of her life, I laid in my hospital bed holding her and sang "Daydream Believer" to her. I used to watch the show as often as I could and had the classic crush on Davy Jones. Such a sad peek into my past. :-)
I actually had a dream the other night about blogging. I guess that was a sign that I should put up a post for a change. I've just been so insanely busy that I haven't even had time to think about blogging. Tomorrow is a big day, and once it's over, I head straight into planning another event. The house concert with Bill and Kate Isles is tomorrow and I am so not even close to being ready for it. I still have so much more cooking, baking, cleaning, and setting up to get done! It's a LOT to accomplish. I've never taken on such an event in my house, and right now it looks like we will have 30-40 guests - yikes!!!
Once I survive this event (assuming that I will...lol), then it's head-first into planning a Kickball Tournament at the girls' school. This is the first of its kind and DH and I are in charge of the whole thing, which is frightening in itself. The good thing is that the kids and staff seem to be really excited about it; this is wonderful! We opened up the competition to 8 teams, and already have 4 signed up and have paid their registration fee - yay! It should be a fun event for the kids. We're getting a trophy to display at school with the winning team on it, and I think I'm making chocolate trophies for all the kids on the team. How exciting to get to eat your trophy! :-) They will also get ribbons to commemorate the win.
I guess I should really get back to my "catering" for tomorrow. I'm making all sorts of snacks and desserts for the concert guests, and there are many things left to do. I'll have time to take a breath about 10:00 tomorrow night. Wish me luck until then!!
