When we got back from our Texas road trip last week, I quickly mailed out my Genealogy Society's March press release. I didn't want to forget or get it to the newspaper too late. I sat back with a big "Ahhhhh".
Yesterday, I got an email from our Workshop Chair. Our March speaker had a death in his family and the memorial service is the same afternoon as our meeting. Yikes! I sent my condolences, then had to jump on the REVISED press release. Luckily, it was mostly copy and paste. But I still had to print the labels, print the press release and the attachment. Label envelopes, fold press release, stuff envelopes, stamp them and get them to the post office before it closes today. (I only have a few newspapers that will accept press releases through email, the rest asked for everything to be sent by post.)
Not exactly how I wanted to spend my Saturday. But glad it didn't happen during the week. I work 10 hour days and when I get home from work, I don't even turn on my computer. The speaker that can't make it in March will be coming to our June meeting. One of our members has stepped up and will giving her presentation on Working With Old American Handwriting. Should be interesting, I'm looking forward to it.
