Today I should have been printing name tags, working on registration packets and organizing over 100 of the most wonderful silent auction items, but instead I spent the afternoon at the Memphis Zoo with my kiddos.  The weather was wonderful and the animals were so active.  The best part was my phone lost all its charge (thanks iPhone update) and I couldn't even take calls or answer emails.  It was everything we needed today.

I know what I am stressed when the bad dreams start.  I have horrible nightmares when I am stressed or feel out of control and that's how I am now.  This is the single most biggest even I have ever steered.  The 5k is huge, but I have 2 partners in crime with it.  The Go Lucy Go Dinner and Auction has really been my baby.   Don't get me wrong, I have had a ton of wonderful help that I couldn't have made it without.  I am so very grateful for the ladies who have tirelessly given of their time to pull this event together.

But just like Jack in the picture below I am tired.  Very tired.  I needed a break today and the Zoo was just what the doctor ordered.  I absolutely loved seeing Jack run from exhibit to exhibit saying "Wow" and "Wook Momma."  Lucy walked her little legs off today and Ella continually amazed me with her knowledge of animals, their habitats and the ecosystem.  All in all it was a great day and I don't regret walking away from the Dinner for a few hours at all.  After all, we only live one life and we aren't guaranteed tomorrow.

Tonight I am back to work on the Dinner and Auction.  There is so much to be done still.  I want to encourage you to purchase your tickets if you haven't yet.  It is going to be a great night and I know you will not want to miss it.
