Hitting the Ground Running

 Today is my day off. It is a day that I usually devote to my art, but today and next Wednesday are going to be devoted to Chickie's party preparations. Since I'm doing a funeral for her birthday (the death of her youth - she's turning 40), I need to sew her shroud today, also get her remembrance cards formatted and printed and get her storyboard assembled. Her Mom gave me some wonderful pictures of her growing up and I'll download some photos that I have taken of her through the years I've known her and I'll have a nice collection of pictures for her friends to look at. I also need to finalize my seating chart (actually two seating charts). The placeholders that I have will allow me to have two different inserts, so that if my DH decides he will attend, I can work with seating chart #2, and if not, I can work with seating chart #1. I also need to tell the restaurant that we are 13/14 instead of 12/13 for our numbers. It's too bad that I don't have two more people attending; we'd be a full surround then and would not possibly have to share our table with another couple.

Running in Place
I'll be running in place today, but I'll get a lot done.

I am looking forward to the party, but I still have a lot of work to do to make it click. She hasn't had a real birthday party since she was a child, and has had to organize her own get-togethers for her birthday for years. This party is one part of my gift to her since I know she really wanted to have a party done for her. Her friends have come together in fine style and we'll have a great time. The restaurant manager keeps sending me very strange looks when I tell him that it's a funeral and we need to have a great party, though - LOL. Too much to do....too much to do....
