Regionals update.

So, we were 8th as a quiz team and 7th overall as a district. My how the mighty have fallen. We'll come back full force next year. We had a blast hanging out with the quizzers. Sunday we painted grandma marge's trailer. We stayed from Wed-Mon with Grandma schriefer, so that was nice too-we didnt see too much of her--but more than normal. I also hung out with my mom some, and thats always a good time. We are in the process of planning for next year's quiz season because we have to get a calendar turned in to NYI by the 1st so it can be published for distribution at convention. I think it's gonna be a great time. We're also finishing up this year collecting final payments and health forms for our trip to Oklahoma this summer. Good times.

Thats the news. I gotta go to work.

stress management

Ok. Anyone who knows me, knows I am not an organized person. Well...not when it comes to my own life. When it comes to trips, activities, etc...I CRAVE structure. That's probably why I end up in charge of things so often (at work, i've been put on a committee to help plan retreat)....

Anyway, TODAY--SUNDAY-Our current district quiz director calls to inform us that he isn't going to be able to make celebrate life. TODAY. Celebrate life starts thursday morning-EARLY. I then find out that our team, our kids, etc...are not yet registered for said event. So, i'm a little stressed. as in, I put a lot of stock in structure. More than I care to admit. And I put a lot of stock into group image--our whole district looks bad to the rest of the region because of all of now--not only will i be working super long days to make up for the time I will be at Celebrate life--I have to actually plan how to get the kids registered and there. Nice. It's ok. I'm just frustrated. Celebrate life used to be fun. Like super fun. being a grown up-turning out to be not as fun as once imagined. I guess this will be one of our first acts as directors. Hope it goes well.

ALSO-my supervisor still hasn't given me back service plans for 2 different reviews TOMORROW (being monday). They were supposed to be at DCFS on FRIDAY. Again, not my fault--i've asked her for them several times--and it looks bad on the whole agency, because tomorrow I'm going to walk in without her signature approving my plans. Oh well. It's not like i'll be in any trouble. I just hate that general feeling of not-preparedness.

On a happier note--i got the bad day song from itunes and have gotten all but 3 people pre-registered for GBQ in July. So thats good.
