One more thing crossed off the "to do" list..

That's really how my life is structured at this point. One big "to do" list. I survive by crossing off one thing after another, watching the list dwindle. Yesterday, I crossed off my last seminar up north. Today, the boys and I crossed off another item on the list...

SELLING 80 CANDY BARS FOR LITTLE LEAGUE!

OK, I had already sold about 15, so 65 were left. In one hour, twenty minutes, we got them all sold. Actually, it wasn't hard. How could someone say no to those two cuties. Plus, when Mom goes along and stands in the road while the kids sell, how can one turn away a $1 candy bar? No, I don't go along to guilt people into buying; I'm there for safety. But, if it helps the candy sell, so be it.

OK, on to some homework, the next thing on my to do list....

Too bad you don't live around here, my DH and I are suckers for those candy drives! We never say no to candy bars! Good luck!

How do you get them sold before internal factions eat them all?

With Ken being diabetic, he's not all that into candy. And, anytime the boys wanted one, I told them to go get a dollar out of their bank and buy it. THat usually made their cravings go away!

Cute story about your candy sales. :-)

I have a running to do list. That's the only way I can get it all done. Otherwise I will forget something.
