When I grow up...
So, I mistakenly thought it would be easy (and be able to undo) to change to "layout" format on this blog.
I spent the better part of half an hour trying to replace your lovely blog links because blogger deleted them! So if I have missed anyone, please post and let me know...it's not intentional :)
And after all of the bitching that I've had to listen to at work this week, I did get some nice compliments. One of them was from one of our members who is a gorgeous older woman whose son has acute schizophrenia. She is involved in all kinds of fundraising for services in the rural areas here, and is a retired actress.
She is gracious enough to host a difficult person at her table at our event next week, even though they dislike each other.
"I suppose a lot of people might not like things that I say or do," she said. "But you know what? I'm nearly 78 and I've been this way my entire life, and I'm not about to change now!"
I haven't heard any complaints about her. I told her that I want to be just like her when I grow up!
PS Happy b.day tomorrow, Chella! And isn't she sweet? She used b.day money to donate to my organization.
