My first Camp fYrefy board meeting.

I am so excited about my position as coordinator for this years Camp fYrefly, seriously.  LOL  Tonight was my first board meeting.  What a fabulous eclectic group of people.  I’m going to have a lot of fun working with everyone.

Anthony (the coordinator for Saskatoon, two years ago) is going to be a lot of fun to work with… and it looks like we’ll be working pretty closely on a number of things.

At one point during our meeting, I actually got goosebumps.  Do you know how exciting it is to be a part of something that can give you goosebumps?  Lots of work to be done, and I’m so excited to get started.

It’s odd coming home to a sleeping household though.  I left here at about 4:30, I only got a short visit with the girlie after school before I had to start getting ready.  And I come home to a dark house, her fast asleep in our bed.  But I know she was in good hands, safe and listened to.

Briefly, at about seven, the realization dawned on me that I’d normally be home reading “chapters” with the girl.  It’s part of our nighttime ritual.  But we both survived just fine.

It’s hard to go from sitting in a board room, directly to laying in bed…  so I’m glad I’ve got this time to blog and unwind.  My brain is all over the place still, feeling a little pulled and a little scattered.  It was a lot to take in, the start of a grand adventure.  It really is exciting.
