d-o-n-e, get it done!
If I seem a little distant right now... I am. I am a little torn in every direction. Today I managed to bake over 160 cupcakes for Lecia's Saskatchewan Scraps event. Tonight The Fan came over and helped me make seven batches of frosting and tomorrow I will assemble everything on site just before they are served. If I did my math correctly I should have about twelve flavours. I'll show you highlights on Monday, you can bet on it.
Also, if I accomplished nothing else this week, I got the Cheerios in order. I found a fantastic deal on shoes at Payless - and it's BOGO right now! The uniforms and poms have been ordered and they're on their way. If you can follow this: I'm having them shipped to my friend's mother in Detroit - and then Veto's cousin and wife will pick them up at her house on their way from Windsor to Chicago when they meet us in December. I'm taking an extra suitcase with me and packing everything to bring home with me. Does it sound like a bit of a dog-and-pony show to you? An apple pie hubbub? Quite possibly. Keep your spirit fingers crossed for me.
Lastly, I set up a private blog for the Cheerios, their parents and the assistant coaches. I'm going to post all the information they will need there. My new motto will be, "when in doubt, check the blog." It's a huge improvement from my old motto, "if you can't say anything nice, come sit next to me."
Now, I have to get the Cheerios on the business end of a fundraiser - and quickly. I've been out of the coaching loop for almost a decade. What's the scoop? What's a hot seller on the circuit right now? All suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
