Well- we have good date auction news: the New England Patriots cheerleaders will be making a special appearance from 7-9pm during the event! I'm really excited about it. They did a fabulous job when they attended in our very first date auction. I also think it will help draw even more people to the event.
In other good news, one of the guys who signed up for the date auction recruited 5 single ladies to participate too. That means we are now more than half way towards our bachelorette goal. We still need a lot more men, but it always takes longer to get the guys to sign up.
In not so good news, we got rejected from the large grant that I applied for a couple of months ago. That was the complicated grant that I spent a lot of time on. Someone had recommended that I apply for it, I actually didn't want to apply and now I wish that I didn't spend the time on it. We fit into their funding guidelines, but it wasn't a particularly strong fit. I can take some of what I wrote and use it in other grants, but it is still disappointing. I didn't get to any grant writing today- I have to do it tomorrow, it is so important. I was going to work on it tonight, but I was too tired.
Well friends, that's it for tonight. I am off to read for a bit and then actually go to bed at a decent hour. Last night was another late one- I need to get out of this habit. I just started a good book called Violets of March- I sat outside tonight in a rocking chair on the porch and read, rather like a grandma! It was so relaxing. Until tomorrow friends..
