French Word(s) of the Day: faire des progrès (fair day pro-gray)- to make progress
There has been another walk committee meeting. They’re all women after my own heart- almost everyone brought food. They also made plans for bringing more food next time.
I promise that food was not the only thing we discussed. Although food takes up 75% of my thoughts, it only took up about 1% of our committee time. Clearly, I’m not the one who runs the meetings or this percentage would be higher. “Yes, I like what you’re saying about the runners, but did I hear you say you know how to make the best apple cobbler? I think we’ll need to test that next meeting.”
I continue to be impressed by how on top of things everyone is. It’s the opposite of those awful school projects where only one person (usually me) did all the work. People do what they’ll say they will, and then they do EXTRA things on top of that. I’m really not used to other people I’m working with being responsible. (Other than the people at my job. But even then, only my direct team. Not anyone else’s.) I keep thinking there’s going to be a catch.
We’ve gotten a solid head start from last year. The race route has been chosen! (Again, I will not be running. I have a theory that you should only run if you’re being chased or have to go to the bathroom.)
With all these fabulous ladies hard at work, I’m pretty positive this year will be the best yet.
We’ve been considering some new ideas for spreading the word about the walk, and there’s a chance we might need some volunteers. I’ll keep you all posted!
