"Each day I arise torn between the desire to improve the World & the desire to enjoy the world. This makes it difficult to plan the day." -EB White.

I have always loved doing things with the kids' school, being daisy leader, room mother, etc., but I started on a new endeavor recently. When we came back home after Katrina, I vowed to do something more. First, with the kids all tossed around and enrolled at different schools with platooning, etc. I was unable to do ANYTHING but play taxi driver. Now that things have settled down, I began volunteering with the New Orleans Area Habitat for Humanity. Although my first wish was to work on site, that's not where they needed me most. So, although I don't drive nails, I have been doing something that is even MORE challenging to me. Yesterday, I was given a list of things they really need to have donated....BIG things...forklifts, skid loaders, heavy duty trailers, utility carts, etc. Eeeeek! I think I bit off more than I can chew! I have a hard time asking someone to buy RAFFLE TICKETS and now I have to respectfully ask these big companies for THIS! Ooops.
