I did it.
I did it I did it I did it!
The theatre programs are done. I probably put in 35 - 40 hours on the stupid thing, but it's done.
The set is done (did the final touches on Tuesday).
I set up our new sound system, and built pre-show, intermission, and curtain-call music sets.
The scout videos are done. Had some rough problems getting the (stupid) software to burn the (stupid) things. Stupid it was. Finally got 'em burned, though, and check! -- they're off my list. I had to reburn one, though -- the boys supply me with the music they want for background....and one of the boys gave me one with lyrics peppered with the word "sh!t". Geez -- what was he thinking? Cursing in a Boy Scout video
(intended for family viewing) is probably not the best choice. But I cleaned up the music, and re-rendered the video, and that's another task done. I easily put in 30 hours on these -- probably more like 50. Should not
have been this big a deal, but computers are stupid.
The High Adventure invitations have been prepared and sent out. Check.
In addition to all the other tasks I (foolishly) took on and already completed, this is a huge load off my mind. Done done done.
I was thinking about it last night -- I have not had one single day -- including weekends -- in which I didn't spend several hours on this stuff since at least
late August. There has not been a single night in which I simply came home from work, had dinner, watched a little TV or read a book, in months....but tonight I'm taking the family to see our show; and tomorrow I'm seeing the show I'm reviewing. Other than that, I ain't doin' no work this here weekend.
Unless, of course, you count massive Christmas shopping as work.
