I'm pretty sure I have asked this question before, but I think it bears repeating: why the "*$%^&!#%@!" does everything get scheduled for the same weekend?
Friday night was the Blue & Gold dinner for the cub scouts, their families AND any boys who will be eligible to join in the coming year. It was also the dinner/lecture with Norm Chow. We chose to see Norm because there were many other people involved with the Cub Scout thing, and no one else was going to walk in with matching jackets of the rival team and ask Norm why he left us. But it was a tough decision.
Then yesterday, Fleighund needed help moving, a parent of one of my church kids was getting baptized, there was a veteran's memorial program, QC was flying into town to see family (and a girl) and they were ALL AT THE SAME TIME! We helped Fleighund move because, again, there was no one else involved with that and he had a lot of crap to clean out and schluff across town. Fortunately the girl QC was coming to see arranged to have him picked up at the airport because there was no way we were going to make his arrival time. Sadly, the veterans and the baptism had to go on without us.
Tonight we're scheduled for dinner with the paternal side of the family and also visiting grandpa (Tarzan's mother's father) in the hospital. All important things but I can only be one place at a time - SOMEone clearly needs to tell SOMEone else to not plan something on a day that I already have something arranged. That's all.
This is me, saying spread it around mateys, spread it around.
