So glad it's the weekend.
Busy week...I keep waiting for the time when things slow down a bit but it's just not happening. This weekend has less on the calendar than the last few have and that's a good thing.
I've been looking at things to order as gifts for various times and people in the next year for the literacy conference. Each time we have a board of directors meeting, they get a gift from me. Each time the conference committee meets, they get a gift from me. These aren't big things necessarily, but it sure is fun figuring out what I want. It's even more fun to spend money that's not my own. The first gift will be a cellophane bag with sticky notes, a really neat pen (blue) and a really neat clip (purple)---all with the 2011 conference logo printed on them. In January the conference committee all get a pretty nice gift--this past year we all got a keychain digital photo frame. My theme is On the Road to Literacy, so some of the gifts will be chosen with that in mind-- travel kits, roadside car emergency kits, etc. It's like shopping for Christmas but having someone else pay for it!
