Swept Under the Rug is a topic that covers things we don’t want to deal with, but know that we need to.
My thing that I need to deal with is my annual charity event, Spa Boutique for a Cure. It was originally set for March 2, 2008, but because that was the day of the LA Marathon we pushed it back to the end of April. Now the hotel has hit me with a bunch of hidden fees that they didn’t mention before and it looks like I’m back to square one all over again – ugh
I find myself toggling with whether or not I should still push forward. I have a TON on my plate. My Little Pretty has taken a huge turn with lots of changes involved. It is taking a lot more of my energy to find a place of balance, to figure out what needs to be done to make the turn be successful the quickest, etc. Do I really have the energy left to put into Spa Boutique for a Cure? I don’t know. I sat on the bathroom floor with my husband Ron the other night and cried – tears of being overwhelmed. On one hand, I love the event and believe that everyone has to do “something”. In fact, last year there was a documentary filmed at the event and I believe they have me saying that very same thing on tape. That something for ME has been to raise money for breast and ovarian cancer research – to be able to help in even a tiny way helps me not feel helpless.
I have my list of pro’s … we have a sponsor already lined up, we have a lot of vendors who would surely like to be involved again, we have press connections, we have a red carpet and press wall. The con’s … we don’t have a venue, I don’t have a lot of cash to front this year, we don’t have a celebrity wrangler connection at the current time.
What to do … what to do. I know I need to make a decision and just move on it, but so far, I haven’t been able to.
:: looks at list :: …. maybe by Monday I will make up my mind …
