Better but still busy.

Friday, December 11, 2015

This has been a hectic couple of weeks, 2 fundraisers, 2 doctors appointments with 2 more appointments next week, and a conference call on Monday.

I'm keeping my fingers crossed because one really influencial businessman is working with our organization and I sent him a LOT of information he needed to speak to them. He did hint that if he got the two grants he's working towards, we could be very near our "goal" of $360,000 to rebuild the Playground. Currently we have raised $205,000 in a year.

Saturdays Fundraiser we raised $500 and Wednesdays we raised around $300 with the ticket sales and bake sale. the business itself raised $217.00 for the rebuild which is great. This McDonald's is very small and inside a gas station, so wow..that was great and everyone was so sweet and helpful.

I finally got the decorations up, a little bit at a time. Still coughing a little bit, and my voice cracks and squeaks a lot, but at least I have one.

Our Daughter and SIL have the flu, well he has the flu (aches, pains, etc) and she has the cold part of it, even lost her voice. I hope she gets it back sooner than I do because they won't let her come to work if she can't talk. She works at a Vet Clinic and needs to talk to help the vet with caring for the animals and to speak to people who come in.

We took some groceries to them yesterday, so I'm hoping I don't catch anything back, with my immune system still not back to normal.

I'm telling you, 2016 can't get here fast enough.

I'm going to post some pics of our house and decorations, and hope you all have a wonderful week ahead. Don't forget to smile!

    Beautiful decorations!! Sorry your daughter and SIL are sick with flu and cold. How miserable! Also sorry you are still not at 100%. It's a tough time of year for it, especially with how busy you are at work.

    Good luck with the fundraising activities and get better.

    So sorry to hear DD and SIL are ill w/the flu. Making the rounds. You're a good Mom/MIL to take them groceries.

    Wow! $205,000 raised. That's incredibly awesome!

    I agree about 2016. **SIGH**

    keeping my eyes on you! Take care of yourself. emoticon emoticon
