Marathon Countdown: Day 3

Wednesday, May 23, 2012

"Good plans shape good decisions. That's why good planning helps to make elusive dreams come true." ~Unknown

"The reason most people never reach their goals is that they don’t define them, or ever seriously consider them as believable or achievable. Winners can tell you where they are going, what they plan to do along the way, and who will be sharing the adventure with them." ~ Denis Watley

Here I am just 3 days before the Marathon Walk and still very excited!!! One of the ladies doing this walk said she is sooo excited she can hardly sleep! Well, maybe that is why I am not sleeping enough. I wanted to go to bed earlier but that is not working out so well. So I try to nap - some days I am able to do that, others not. I am waking early - very early like on walk days and will not try to change that - will need to get up even earlier on Saturday. I predict that after the 8 hour walk I will be like the cat in the hammock above.

Yesterday I went to ask a friend to donate. Hubby had told me that he already spoke to this guy and did not think it was a good idea to go back. HE was sure the guy would turn it down. I asked hubby if the guy said no; no, he did not say no. Well then let me at him! And would you believe it?! He handed over a nice donation!!!! I had hubby take our pic in front of the guy's store. We also went to two other donors for a photo. Want to get another one today. Think I will get them printed as a thank you. I have 18 donors and possibly one more. Thrilling to realize!!!

Did not make much progress on the presentation yesterday but am already re-scanning a few old photos today. When I scanned them over a month ago, they did not turn out well. So trying again and they are much better. I am coming up on the halfway through revision which is taking much longer than I thought it would. It is good though and I am sure it will be great. Praying for no more computer program glitches!!!

The lasagna for our colleagues came out exceptional - that is, in fragrance! Hah! I am NOT going to taste it. It cut beautifully this morning and is now in the freezer. I decided to do that so they don't need to bake it and can thaw individual servings. I will make a coleslaw Friday then see that everything is put in their fridge for their arrival on Saturday.

Must get on with other things now, so - I appreciate your cheers and encouragement as I make a dream come true!

    YOU are doing wonderfully, TAZ, and I am so excited for your preparation and pending participation in an 8 HOUR MARATHON walk! LOVED the pix you shared of that cat in a hammock. Cannot wait to see your pix.

    People respond differently to different people, so I have always agreed that going directly to the source is the best way to 'know', and to build community. KEEP ON KEEPING ON! emoticon emoticon
