Day 441

Well, if you're friends with me on FB you might already know what the big news from yesterday is.

Truthfully, it probably wasn't a wise idea to make this goal.  If you look up the official rules on being a collegiate advisor, it says you have to be an alumna for 5 years.  I'll hit the 5th anniversary of my college graduation on day 991 of this 1001 day trek.  But many pre-requisite rules can be bent with approval from the Province Presidents when the right person for a job is found.

So you can imagine how thrilled I was on Friday when the general advisor for our local collegiate ZTA chapter emailed me to say that she'd talked to the Province President, and they felt I would be a great fit as the ritual advisor!

80. Hold a regional position/advisor position.

Clearly, I accepted. :)  I am sooo excited about this and cannot wait to get started!

Day 440

I know this is kind of one of those "So why did you post?" situations.

I've completed a goal but until it's publicly announced I can't really say anything.

So stay tuned :-)

Day 436

Wow, we're able to cross off a goal... one that I was beginning to think would never come off.

65. Trevor and Darcy let a “stranger” come into our house, sans barking and jumping.

We had my brother and my parents over for dinner since we were having pot roast for dinner.  (BTW, I thought I had perfection on Christmas, but it was even BETTER today).  Christian came over first and the dogs barked at him, but when my parents showed up a few minutes later, they didn't bark at all!  There was also no jumping at all at my dad.  They admittedly did jump at my mom, but she was holding dog treats.  That does not count.

"Stranger" was always in quotes because to my dogs, anyone who does not live in our home/does not come over at least once a week for months is a stranger.  They're pretty protective of our home.

On a not quite so bright note, my progress on 'book 7 weddings in a year' went back 2 weddings.  I booked Tori's and Tracy's weddings at the beginning of November 2010, so those have expired.  Oh well, I'll book more :)  And on a bright wedding note, Tori gets married on Friday, so I have a wedding coming right up!  So excited!
