Taskmaster. Taskmistress?

I had last week off work and it seemed to me that Bat Mitzvah preparations took up a significant chunk of that time.

My gas-guzzling week included trips to Aaron Brothers, the SF Flower Market, Flax, Nordstrom (x3), the post office, Richard's, Target, Cost Plus, Cheesecake Factory, Crate & Barrel, At the Candy Shop, Costco, Party City, Levy's Bagels, Joann Fabrics, Beauty Source, Office Max and on and on.

The dining room continues to take on a life of its own.

My panic has subsided as I've methodically checked things off my list. If you've offered help, I've taken you up on it.

My Badgers were in the Rose Bowl so we had a crowd here New Year's Day. Sadly, there was no deep friend turkey left. My friend's daughter, an UofO-bound high school senior, will be one of the party motivators at the Big Bash. She gave me some pointers and her mom helped me with some assembly projects during the ugly game. (At least we didn't go to Anaheim to see it this time.)

I still have a lot to do but the advance work is pretty much on schedule. This week's project: finding something for me to wear.
