I don't think I've mentioned this, but; I am this year's chairperson for my woman's club's annual Christmas Party.
Yesterday, I joined two of the women on my committee on a tour of the nicest country club in Hooterville. The tour was to determine if we wanted to hold the party in the club's Members Only ballroom (one of my committee members has privileges at the club). The tour was awesome and the menu that the club manager put together for our approval is simply to die for.
We all loved the place and I can't wait to have the party there. You know, once I crunch the numbers to determine if it's really within our budget.
Speaking of my woman's club; this weekend, we are setting up for one of our biggest fundraisers, the annual Holiday Festival of Trees. I put together a wreath for the event again this year and I'm pretty happy with the results. I'm less happy with the glitter that it is shedding all over my house, but, that is a temporary problem so, I'll live.
The Festival is set to take place next weekend and we always enjoy getting dressed up to attend. Well, I do; Hugh could skip the dressing up part.
I bitch a lot about the work involved in being a member of this club, but, I'm so thankful to have had the opportunity to meet the women that I have through my membership. I'm grateful for their friendship and support as well as for the networking that I have been able to do through knowing them, in fact, I have my new job thanks in large part to this club.
I'm also thankful for the good work that we do. I know people are struggling these days and it feels really nice to be able to say that I am involved with a group that has done so much to ease the suffering of so many.
Oh, I'll still bitch about the work involved on occasion, but, still...so thankful.
