Really Tired.

I'm so tired tonight that I almost skipped blogging. But so much happened today that I wouldn't let myself do that...

We had our last Staff meeting until after the festival this morning.

I got a good start on the eNewsletter banner -- but not on the actual coding of the Copy! (sigh)

Noon-ish we went to Pioneer Courthouse Square where the Winterhawks (ice hockey team) was celebrating winning the championship this past Sunday. And where we announced (Jeff, Jeff and Todd on stage) that the Winterhawks will be the grand marshals of the Starlight Parade! Rich and I hung out together. He was working with the Winterhawks people to coordinate our participation -- and I was there to get some photos. I can't recall who all ended up there. But I do know Ashley, Megan and Christine were there, too. Marilyn had another appointment and couldn't make it.

Donn came in just past 9:00 -- he'd have been in earlier, but spent the night with Denise in the hospital (!!!). She had a serious bladder infection, poor thing -- and Donn was dragging from lack of sleep! But you really couldn't tell that -- he put in a long, hard day.

Basically with the juice not going on in the park for hours, it put the whole WiFi setup behind. Donn was there most of the day. He did go out and purchase security cables to lock down the two laptops for CityFair. And it was fortunate I brought another laptop from home in to the office, as Jeff came to me about a computer for on-site accounting (!!!).

I showed Caroll the interesting aspects of using Windows 8. She'll do fine. And got her a jump drive to use. I also got Shelley a jump drive to use and gave her the second computer.

I did some changes at the website and spoke with Mark (who works for Rick) about the phones. He's coming in first thing tomorrow to get things done and (hopefully!) finally solve the phone problem. It's close to THREE MONTHS now that we've had issues... (sigh)

By the way, Marilyn and I were at work just past 7:00 a.m. this morning. And left work around 8:00-ish. Early enough to stop on the way home and pick up my prescriptions (and Marilyn's). I had a total of EIGHT there. (yikes)

Dinner was refried bean tacos and celery.

Tomorrow sister Sue and I are going to Costco in the morning. Then I'll need to spend the rest of the day finishing up the eNewsletter...

I probably should go to work on Thursday -- so I can attend the photo meeting that morning. I wanted to go to sister Sue's and mess with her computers. I guess I'll have to think it over and decide which I'll do...

I'm sure there's more, but I'm too tired to remember right now. I must sleep, so I'll close for now...

Friday is the Expo and Sunday is the Rock 'n' Roll Portland Half Marathon -- so it all starts THIS WEEK (!!!). Yes, I'm in denial. There's so much to get done!!! And as I said, we took the park today. A good portion of the setup will be done by Friday (and finished up next week). The official opening night of CityFair is next Friday night (May 24).

I'll try to post more tomorrow...
