Are we there yet?

I am really, really trying to get excited about the holidays but so far it just isn't working. Some of it has to do with the year we've had, but mostly this time of year feels like some kind of race to the finish line. It isn't just the holidays, since we will be away for both Thanksgiving and Christmas this year. We are also caught in a year end frenzy!

Every nonprofit I'm involved in is either preparing for a major fundraiser or involved in umpteen year end activities for the board to attend. We are making a major marketing push to pump up our business (both exciting and exhausting) while trying to plan for 2012. And did I mention that my house has once again collapsed in to a mega mess?

Whew! Glad to get that off my chest. Thanks for listening while I vent :-)

Tomorrow morning I'm walking in the Alzheimer's walk with my business partner Beth. Should be interesting given how out of shape I am. Keep a good thought for me. Tomorrow night I get to be a silent/live auction helper at the a local Rotary event. They graciously donate to one of the organizations I work with so we give back by volunteering for them. I always grumble before I haul myself off the couch but I'm sure I'll have a good time watching other people spend their money!

That's what is going on in my world. What's happening in yours?
