Advice

Don't ever wait until the last week to finalize plans on a Neighborhood Picnic/Carnival/Extravaganza for 400 people. Try to finalize earlier, like when your co-chair (i.e. Husband) is not traveling back East for work and will return the day before the event. But especially --especially! --don't feel bad when you have to cut some of the events last minute because of said procrastination. Feeling bad just adds to the stress.

P.S. I promise to respond to your comments in the previous post eventually, okay?
P.P.S. Christy? I emailed you about your friend's piano teacher need...

*Update P.P.S. For a great post, go read The Wiz at MMW. I liked it. A lot.

thanks for your help :) i know that you know you are great, but i will tell you again..."you are GREAT!!"

And...i am a total procrastinator - I feel like i do my best work under pressure. There are something things I make sure are done before hand...but some things i wait and then completely stress over - i just think that is how i am wired! I am sure that you extravaganza will be SO much fun - just let it roll :)

Well, things are looking up, and regardless of how it will turn out, I know the food will be good, music will be heard, and the kids will have some awesome games. That's all we need, right?

Thanks for your good luck wishes!

Wiz's post was awesome...definitely good enough to warrant the breaking of my own "no community blogs" rule. :)
