Y2 Day 80: My Starring Role in the Church Fair
I did this — pack, carry, return for more — approximately 3,618 times.
I am dead dog tired.
Here's my quick summation of Goal Week before I collapse into a hot tubby: What I tried to do was a modified version of boot camp and a modified version of a writers retreat. Most people don't do them both at the same time. Also: When most people do either of those things, they go somewhere else to do it, and that is all they do. While I'm tempted to give myself a low grade for the week, I also cut myself some slack, because, dudes, there's a ton going on around here!! I give myself a B.
Which is hard for me, I'm an A girl. But, whatev.
OK, got to take my bath now. And mainline some Motrin, every single part of me aches.
Oh! But I should also mention this: It was totally fun. I love my church, I love the people I worked with last night and today. I laughed a ton and had a ball. We were all in it together.
And that is something to be very thankful for.
(Even though my efforts only got a B this week.)
Good night! Sweet dreams.
p.s. I realize that my description above ("we sold half") makes our Church Fair sound like a total bust. At most of the booths (e.g., Book Nook, Jewelry Box, Chips 'n' Salsa [computer equipment]) we sold a ton. But there's a particular booth, Attic Treasures, that seems to be a repository for the most amazing crap (think: Kabob-It!, a "machine" for cooking kabobs) — the fact that we sell half of it is a small miracle. And it's that booth that most closely resembles the picture above.
Our goal is to make $16K. I'll report tomorrow on how we did.
