Well, here we are in a new week. What's happening? Well, I got a commitment for a cool auction item again- we've had this item for the past 2 years and it is always popular, so that was really good news. The guy who is my contact for this auction item is always so pleasant and helpful, I really enjoy speaking with him each year. I don't have any exciting news this week. I have been so tired yesterday and today that I've fallen behind on things. I don't know why I'm this tired. I haven't been getting enough sleep, that's probably what it is. I'm one of those people that need a lot of sleep in order to function well. I wish I could get by on 7 hours (or less), but I actually need almost nine. It has been that way for a long time, I keep pretending that I'm fine without it, but I know I'm not. I can go for a day or two with less sleep, but then it catches up and I'm very unproductive. I have so much work to get done, I can't be unproductive.
I still have a long way to go with date auction sponsors. I did get an email from a group on an unrelated matter who would be a perfect fit as a sponsor- they are targeting young single professionals in the Boston area. I was out for a lot of the afternoon today and didn't get their email until tonight, but I will be in touch with them tomorrow and introduce our date auction to them. Hopefully, they will be interested. If I was their marketing director, I would be all over it.
I submitted one of our annual grant applications today. This grant was the very first one that we ever received, it was for $1,000- I remember getting the news and being so thrilled. Those first time memories will be with me forever. They have donated $1,000 for the past 4 years, so hopefully they will keep continuing with another grant. These annual grants are so important because they are the foundaiton of our fundraising- we need need the annual support that we can count on and we need to build new support each year.
Anyways, it is 12:10 and I'm going to bed- my eyes are hurting and I need to catch up on sleep, so I'm not moving a turtle pace tomorrow. Today was also a special day, it was my mom's birthday! I love her so much and I'm grateful for all the support that she gives me. Without her, I wouldn't be doing PS. She is such a great mom- the best I could ever have asked for.
Until tomorrow friends..
