So, I should have blogged earlier today when I logged on for a few minutes from work. But I didn't. And now I have just a few minutes to get it done before midnight.

An inauspicious start to the month of blogging, eh?

Come to think of it, I've already blogged for February 1, so this will get me set for tomorrow!

I only had time for a half hour on the treadmill, since I needed to stop for this. A quick nap, shopping at Freddy's, then home . . . and after this, I have to take a shower and wash my hair.

We've got a long week ahead . . . Winter Board meeting, court judging on Saturday and the Rosarian auction Saturday night.

My thoughts go out to all my friends struggling with the horrid winter weather. We're so lucky here, and we know it, believe me. The sun was so bright today, my office was cooking!

When it comes to character, I have a long way to go . . . Angel and I laughed our butts off about a ridiculous situation, at someone else's expense, I'm afraid. Without laughter, I don't think I could cope with all the drama.

Speaking of Angel and 'building character,' we met with the Art Institute woman today about designing the costume for our Clown Prince mascot. She was a hoot and a half, and the sketches she had done were already wonderful. Rich made copies of them, and I looked at them knowing they would end up a piece of festival history . . . the making of a mascot that will hopefully last long after I'm history!

I just can NOT get over all you can do in a day. You amaze me. And working out on top of it all? Incredible.

Plus blogging, too! (woo hoo) Lovin' it.

You'll do great this week. You always do!

I am less sure that laughter, privately or with a confidant, shows a lack of character. Instead I would suggest it is a mood stabilizer, to allow venting, to move forward while using character to deal with solutions well.

You are so amazing and with all that you have on your plate, I think you handle it all so well. Making history, how great is that and hopefully the Festival will have someone else to keep track of it all when you retire. Like that will happen maybe in another 25 years. Lol

Take care, and I guess with your busy week-end, I won't see you before I leave for Reno. I leave a week from Thursday. With all of the bad weather around the nation, we will be down on people being able to get there. The same thing happened last year, the smallest turn out ever because of flights not going and bad snow and ice.

We are lucky and on my way to the dentist this morning I saw two bunches of spring flowers in full bloom.

I have to agree about laughter; it's a life saver.

I love people who have a free sense of humor. It's beautiful and even sexy.
