We had our largest food drive of the year yesterday, and it looks like it was very successful. We may have even reached our goal of 200,000 pounds of food, making it the largest one-day food drive in our 25 year history. We have a lot of other events coming up in the next couple of months, but at least the fundraiser and the food drive are both finished, and were both successful. Exhausting, but successful.
Today is Mother's Day, of course, and I spent time with my mom, which is always good. She really is more like a friend than a mom now that I'm an adult. The gift I got her didn't arrive when it was supposed to be delivered, so last night I had to do some last minute shopping so that she would have something to unwrap. I ended up getting her the second season of her favorite TV show on DVD (got her the first season for Christmas) and she liked it a lot. The hand-made African wind chimes that I ordered from the hunger site were nicer, but oh well. I'll give them to her when they come in. (she loves wind chimes and her favorite ones were broken in the last hurricane because we forgot to bring them inside)
Anyway, I'm going to write a bit before going to bed. Not sure which project I'm going to tackle, but I feel an intense need to do something on one of them. I always feel unsettled when I go several days without writing. I'm sure that's why I feel unsettled right now.
You feel unsettled because you're a writer. Writers make sense of the world by writing. So, in order to feel in alignment, you need to write.ReplyDelete
I know that's true. Happily, I managed to get some writing done last night and it felt great. I really need to get back into the habit of writing every day. I got out of it in the month leading up to my fundraiser because things were so insane. But now I'm getting back to my routine, so I'll be able to write every day again.ReplyDelete
