September in the rear view, well almost. Let me just say, “IT’S BEEN BUSY!” (am I using that correctly, grammar cops!).
Both my boss and I finally realized that Sunday was that day of REST we had been missing for some time!
I was at the CAA’s CARFIT clinic yesterday morning, then walked to the Canadian Police and Peace Officers Memorial at Wascana Park.
What an incredible day; sun, warm, the beauty of fall shining through. P.S. a Roughrider victory was the icing on the cake.
September started off with a bang; actually let’s go back to August or maybe July. Who am I kidding, every month has been incredibly busy. September just held the ultimate work load.
Not all duties have been work related, they just seem that way. Funny how those lines are often blurred.
Time Management. Time Management. And just saying NO! Two keys to the game!
I like to call it “EVENTING“. The key: write things down in the order they need to be completed. If you can, then multi-task.
Just last week, while on location at Mosaic Stadium, that happened. The UPS guy showed up on a day where Amy, the receptionist was not working – Saturday! The other staff was busy too! I got him to set the package down (I’m on the air doing the “cut-in”), I signed for the box and sent him on his way! I’m sure the guy didn’t even know what was going on. Hey, we do what we can to help out! And he got a “shout-out” on 620 CKRM!
I belong to the Downtowners Optimist Club and the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 001.
Often times you work yourself into a position you really can’t do justice to. You might be an idea person, but you just don’t have the time or perhaps the complete set of tools to get the job done! Right now, I consider myself in that line.
Our Optimist club just completed a satisfying fundraiser for Camp Circle of Friends. We had hoped to sell 125 tickets. We came in under that total, but it seems we did alright with our fundraising dollars.
There is always room for improvement – it was the first time for the Wigs and Wine Charity Event. (Donations are still accepted!)
And now the Legion! Well, there is a re-building of some social media. It is a small way to bring the Legion into the “now” world of communication. But it is a rather large working piece, that I’m not sure if I have the time for. You cannot recreate the wheel.
The Legion is steeped in tradition and there is a correct way to go about these things. Slowly and methodical.
This afternoon one of the final stops for the HMCS Regina will be at Royal Canadian Legion Branch 001. Pictures and stories to follow on their website, Facebook and Twitter Accounts.
The Legion is looking forward to meeting the crew of the ship and I’m sure they may receive a sneak peek of the new museum (still under “construction”).
I hate rushing the year, but I think October might be a bit more sane!
