So instead I will use the excuse of being REALLY busy for the next little while and beg your forgiveness while I drop off the face of the earth... wait, no, just off the face of the blogosphere - you see - it is that wonderful time of year again when we hold our school book-fair... which means basically that twice a year I put everything on hold to sit and smile behind a table trying to raise a few bucks so that the PTA can turn around and buy MORE books for the teachers.
Being an admitted book junkie you would think this would SO be my bag... and it probably is - I'm also addicted to throwing a really good party so for me this is great, I go all out with the book-fair theme and I even dress up (anyone got a pith helmet?) to pitch a few books. The problem? Well, it's that whole "family" thing - they begin to feel neglected when I spend one week setting the whole thing up, another week running the thing, and the third week reconciling the financials and trying to catch up on all the things left undone at home during weeks one and two. I'm giving it up next year - for my mental health and because the kids can't eat THAT many budget frozen entrees!
No really - I grabbed a few handfuls of each flavor last week because dinner is too much to think about when I'm in the book-fair "zone"... I guess my diet is safe for at least one more week!
Anyway - I'm sure I'll pop in at least occasionally because... well, because that's just how I am - but my guess is that until the dust settles I will have my brain full of financial mumbo jumbo and ordering hoopla... so, "discuss amongst yourselves" and I'll be right back
(yeah, that's not quite right without the Church Lady voice)
