I chickened out

So I went to this meeting last night at church where they are all very excited for me to be in charge of the Used Book Sale to raise funds for the window replacement project. I had sent out an email expressing that I was not sure how I would be able to handle being in charge of it and certainly could use some help if not have someone else take over. I mentioned that as the mother of seven and every other crazy thing that goes on my life that this project might not get done without other bodies involved. they thought Anita could be my helper and I mentioned to them that she was expecting and they all looked sympathetic to the weariness she may be experiencing......and then they asked when she was due. I missed my opportunity. I should have said "I think right after me" but instead I said, "I think sometime in mid-September but I wasn't positive". SO.........I have been appointed delagator (Is that like an alligator?). And in Karin style I delegated to the man who volunteered me to call Anita and ask how she would feel about helping me out. Ha! I am so naughty. He sort of blanched and said "Yah, yah, I could do that". Just wait till the poor things find out I am expecting as well. Perhaps Dave S who reads this blog will let them know quietly on the side. I will very sure to delegate this whole thing out as I am not sure if it will ever happen unless I do. Ramble, ramble......

That's not chickening out ma'am, that's delegating LOL!

I guess the best place to start is forming a list of what needs to get done and then finding people to do it:) We can talk more on Sunday or another time that's convenient.

Take care!
