Why I love email

I just got off the phone. I just got through calling 14 kids to see if they will be coming to the tournament. Eliminated a few maybes, firmed up sleepover plans for half of my passengers, and need to re-contact about 4 tomorrow night.

Whew. I prefer email, where you only have to write stuff up once, email it to the crowd, and sit back waiting for feedback. Only we need a confirmed roster for the team, and are aiming for Wednesday night. That'll give Coach Thursday to get a check cut for the entry fee.

And we get to do it all again in January, when we take the team to a tournament that's the first Saturday after break. Whew.

Now to clean up my bedroom, wrap a couple of packages, and start sewing. Turns out clearing off the sewing table is easy -- the "mess" is a laundry basket of mending that I haven't gotten to, and easily moved aside to use the machine.
