Dec 5 . . . a Saturday
I was surprised after the exhausting and fabulous night before that I had any energy, but I woke up early and I was able to get up the devotional and the newsletter out and then I began working on the post for sharing my play with Hybrid Bible Journaling, having to take some more photos. It took me a while to write that post.
We had plans for the day and were late getting out of the house at about 9:15 a.m.
This was the silly brother daily photo that we sent to his sister who has liver cancer. It is the only way we can think to help make her days brighter. Hubby was the greeter at the Help Portrait. I may be a little prejudice, but I think he was a grand greeter.
It was about 3:30 before I left and my brain was fried. I could not do this kind of thing all day under this stress. The count later was 139 photos printed. So this was on the low numbers this year for attendance. There have been as many as 500 in previous years. I cannot imagine. I was told several times that we were doing the hardest job, but I think it would have been easier if the photographers would have done their job.
In the end, it was all for a good cause and many needy people went home with framed professional photos.
Then I went to my friend's house and installed the DVD drive I had gotten in the mail on Friday. At first the new drive did not work either! Then I googled online and found some instructions and deleted two registry keys, restarted, and it worked! Praise the Lord! I've been over to her house trying to get this set up so many times and I'm so happy it is finally done. We sat and chatted for a while, but I had developed such a huge headache.
It was about 7 p.m. I think when I got home and my head was debilitating having worked so hard all day that hubby went to get McDonald's. I think partly I was hungry. They did have food at the Help Portrait and I did eat two thin pieces of pizza, but somehow it was blah and not enough for this long day.
I was beyond ready for bed after we watched a little t.v. to wind down.
