Yesterday I managed to fill in all but 1 slot which I was later told that night that this is the most they've had filled on the 1st weekend in a long time and that they were really impressed especially since there was another event going on this weekend that used volunteers called "Christmas In The Country". I didn't realize it was ok to have free spots although I do realize that the more we fill the more we can raise for the food bank. Best news is that I have a great start already for next week which will be for the Thurs, Fri, Sat. Even better news...I expected people to cancel because the weather wasn't great and they're calling for snow squalls the next couple days. I called 105 of the remaining 110 volunteers yesterday plus did all the reminder calls to make sure everyone could make it.
Dishes still not 100% done, it's like I'm not allowed to get them finished LOL. Something always happens that I can't get them done before I run out of hours in a day!!! Car seats are still out LOL...not hard to do so once again they were put off. Cupcakes waited til morning because I spent too long on the phone and then I had a cranky baby (she's cutting teeth again) and by the time she went to bed for the night there was no way I was going to make cupcakes at 2:30 in the morning.
Laundry was started and I did a bit more today. Organization of the call backs are going to be done tomorrow since Sundays we don't call since the organization is church based. Obviously no wish list stuff was done.
I was up til after 3 am because I was chatting it up with the daycare kids mom for a while. I've got to break this staying up super late habit. I know that at thispoint it's useless because Natasha won't sleep well til late at night but I want to be able to go to bed earlier on the night's that she is cooperating and I don't have daycare so late.
Today was my 2nd oldest's birthday. We went to the game store where they have an area to play games and held his party there. It went pretty well but I think I had it set up to run to long because it got boring near the end. All the kids showed up which is great considering the snow squall warning they had all day.
I'm so exhausted from going on very little sleep the last couple days that I'm really hoping to get to bed here shortly. Been a long time since I've been able to get to bed before midnight and 7am is just too early when you're up through the night with a baby.
Focus for Nov. 24:
- Print off contact form for daycare kid
- bath for all 3 little ones (Liam found the pen tonight and I'm too tired to scrub him down LOL)
- more laundry
- organize call backs
- play a game with my older kids
- finish dishes
- scrub pen off the foam mats and the floor tiles (LOL good thing they're so adorable!!!)
- find my bank card
- car seats
