It’s Giant Fundraiser day! Man, will I ever be happy when today is over.
I know I have the kind of personality that takes on too much, and then tries too hard to make everything perfect once I’ve taken the job. But man, was this ever a lot of work. I hate to be a whiner but I have to say two things: first of all, as the head person, you wind up doing a lot of jobs that no one else wants to do, all Little Red Hen “Then I’ll do it myself!” type stuff. Secondly, whenever I did put out a call for help with stuff, it was always the same four or five people who came forward to say they’d help out. I always felt so bad taking advantage of the same people who were already helping with six other things, but I guess it’s just hard to recruit new people to get involved with something they have no prior experience with.
Still, I hope some excited, energetic, new parents come forward to help out next year.
Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m off to the school to have about 25 nervous breakdowns. Wish me luck!
