It's GO time

Meh meh meh
Blah blah blah

That's how I've been feeling the last couple of days.  I haven't really been able to put my finger on it exactly, until I realized, OH YEAH, it's because Blaine has been outside working every night until dark.  Yeah, yeah.  That's right.  Until dark.  Every day this week.

It's getting old for me and I know it is tiring for him too.  (And especially hard on both of us with the babe.  Me, needing a break, and him, missing him.)  I have to keep remembering that this is seasonal, and it will end.  It will.  But it might be another month. 

It is raining today, so I'm hoping he won't duke it out with the forces of nature and insist on planting the tomatoes tonight.  I'm pretty sure he won't.  And Lord knows we all need a break.

It is temporary.  Just temporary. 

I have to remember that.

I'm also in the middle of a massive Friends of the Library fundraising glut, where four events are converging in the space of three weeks.  (June is apparently GO! Month.)  Since I am the main organizer, that means I am doing things like recruiting all the volunteers and trying to figure out how many gallons of cole slaw are needed to feed 100 people.  (Five gallons, can you believe it??)

The cole slaw is what is needling me the most, actually.  I can't wait to have that conundrum behind me.

While I'm at it, I might as well insert some outright bragging --

Our Friends of the Library group has been in existence for 2.5 years now.  We have bought 4 different bookshelves for the library, spent somewhere around $600-700 in new books for the collection, and still have $4,000 in the bank. 

Yow.  We rule.
