This has been a crazy, busy week. After helping to process approximately 250 cookie dough orders and counting more than $35,000. in cash and checks, I am happy to report that this year’s major fundraiser will be concluded as of today. Well, except for the four or five orders that will continue to straggle in more than a week late.
Just when I think I’m ALL done, in comes another one.
We had a processing party at my house on Monday. My dining room table was full of activity.
Around here, the excitement never ends.
And apparently, neither do the out-of-focus photos.
It took a great group of parent volunteers, more than eight hours to process the bulk of the orders, and then we’ve spent probably another three or four making sure this thing goes off without a hitch. For the third year in a row, we have sold over $35,000. worth of cookie dough.
Yes, you read that right.
I was thinking this might be the year that the sales start to dwindle. But alas, that was not the case. My Type-A personality had its hands full this week.
After finishing up my work at the school today, one of my mom-friends and I ran home to get the SKY so that we could take full advantage of the 75 degree day. It was straight-up fabulous, except for when we had to make a decision whether we should eat lunch at the mall or somewhere else. I need to get my wedding ring serviced, so I thought I could have lunch and get my ring checked all in one trip, but there was a little issue last week with the sixth floor of the mall parking garage falling onto the fifth floor of the parking garage, and the last thing I wanted was for
my cute little car to get smashed Linda and I to be flattened like a pancake. We ultimately decided to steer clear of the mall, opting instead to eat at a mexican joint, where we solved third-world problems over chips and salsa and cheese sauce.
Later in the evening, the boys and I met my daddy at sLOWES to buy some wood.
After waiting for over twenty minutes for an employee who could actually operate this saw, I remembered why I call that place sLOWES. Sometime this week, my daddy is building a wall unit similar to this one for my soon-to-be mudroom. But first I have to paint 12 pieces of plywood, which is fine with me because I’m excited to get it built and in place. I have been planning this room in my head (and on my Pinterest board) for a couple of years.
I’ll be sharing pics as soon as the unit is finished.
In the meantime you can count on more pics of this sucker, because I still can’t believe that it is mine.
Happy Wednesday, y’all!
