Uh Oh!

This weekend is my last hoorah in my daughter's school's PTA. I'm the Back-To-School Picnic Chairperson and the event is Sunday. We start back to school here in August. But when it's over, I'm done with my indenture to the PTA. Not just for the year - but forever! Woo hoo! This is my daughter's last year at the school. Then she's off to high school and I'm off the hook!
Next week we go back to my friend's beach condo for a few days. The good news is, they're renting the place for the year. That means we can go a bunch more times and pretend we're millionaires.
On a totally different subject - I screwed up. I told my Dad we could travel to NY the first week of November to help celebrate his 80th birthday (although his birthday is around Thanksgiving, we didn't want to deal with the holiday travel crowds). Turns out, Nov 3 is a huge book signing here that I totally forgot about. Not only am I a signer, but I've agreed to do a program the night before the signing. As if that wasn't a big enough oversight, Nov 3 is also the date of a close friend's son's Bar Mitzvah. So, here's my schedule Nov 3: 10:00 am - Noon - Bar Mitzvah service. Noon - 1:30 - Bar Mitzvah luncheon. 2-5 pm - Book signing. 6 pm - 11 - Bar Mitzvah party. And hell no - I won't miss the party!!! Should be quite a day.
Looks like we'll have to brave the holiday travelers after all. What about you? Have you ever completely zoned out about a big event and double booked?

I space out all the time on big events, so now I have a wall calender at home that everything goes on and a computer calender at work that dings at me all the time.

Sometimes they help. Sometimes not.

Believe it or not - I have a calendar that's like my bible. I think I just spaced out and didn't consult it.

The one thing I'm consistent about is double-booking myself over and over and over again.

Dara Edmondson said...

Oh no, Julia! Iget really stressed when I do things like that.

Julie S said...

Hmm...I don't think I ever double booked, let alone triple booked! My life isn't that exciting.

Congrats on saying good-bye to the PTA :-) I think you'll end up missing it.

Dara Edmondson said...

Hmm. You may be correct, Julie. The folks are nice - most of them, anyway;-)
