Iâ€™m afraid that I havenâ€™t paid as much attention to this blog as I should in the last two weeks; the start of my first summer reading program is just days away, and itâ€™s definitely crunch time.
Just when I think Iâ€™ve caught up, I think of one more thing that HAS to be done RIGHT NOW.Â Yesterday it was assembling large envelopes for the raffle items that have the logos of the donating stores on them.Â (One of the raffle items, just arrived, is pretty awesome, by the way: a baseball autographed by the actor and Red Sox fan Mike Oâ€™Malley, star of the show Yes, Dear.)
Today, hopefully, Iâ€™ll finish up all those nagging last minute items: making the raffle tickets, creating posters for each of the summerâ€™s events, stamping all those museum coupons with our official stamp, confirming the ice cream pick-up timeâ€¦ugh, Iâ€™m getting a stomach ache just thinking about the list.
With luck, next summer – my second summer on the job – will be smoother and easier.Â With luck, all the kinks will have been worked out by next year.Â With luck, I wonâ€™t be this stressed out and exhausted next summer.
Wish me luck, I need it!
