As Treasurer, maybe you can adjust the timing for payment to allow you to be an active participant. This 30 minutes, you are available, otherwise catch up with you after the event.

Doing laundry and thinking about packing. When we headed south in the spring (another parental emergency) we swore we were going to buy new luggage. Did we? No. I just put away all my summer clothes and have to go up and bring them back down. Plus a dress for a funeral. I think I've managed to cancel all holiday invitations (I usually make Thanksgiving dinner for my friends, then throw a big holiday bash on the first Sunday in December, but I don't think I'll be here).

We knew all along you could do it. What took them so long?

It wasn't them. I could have been treasurer in February, when our treasurer resigned. I didn't want to be treasurer. But, now I see that it is probably less stress for me if I am treasurer.

I just got back from buying our frozen Thanksgiving turkey. I thought I would see how much a fresh one would cost, holy moley. I didn't know they cost twice as much as a frozen one. What do you buy?

Good morning guys

This morning I have a few things to get from the shops and I am also going to a fish shop to buy some more lovely fresh fish

Then I have some boring ironing to do and a bit of housework
