The big event preparation appears to be on track. We are expecting a large audience.  I’m hoping to top last’s year’s affair.

I and S attended an event that would tie up efforts on our new roadshow.  I am seeing a pool of experts we can rely on in future briefings.

The network I’ve linked with has proved effective in resource generation and publicity for our events.  Even S feels comfortable within that network.

Very clean slate.

Meeting up with like-minded people and the interaction with my team was pleasant.   Some co-assessors from past applications  were there and we seemed to be more attuned to each other verging on fondness because of the experience we shared.  Many assessors including my friend C begged off from serving this year.

MD and OS started their vacation.  Home seems brighter with these two around.  In the weekend, ED came and went.  

More early than late since I’m on training for three days.

Things falling into place.  We are getting support even if we don’t have enough funds.  I I believe we will be able to hit our targets at a steal. 

Travel planning gives me the high.  A cost-efficient and satisfying itinerary is more of less firm.  We’re skipping the mountain because ED wants something techie.  They win.  ED purchased our theme park passes and rebooked MD’s ticket.  MD will leave ahead of us since their orientation for internship will start before we are back home.  I’m still ambivalent on the accommodation for the first leg of the trip.

After the drought comes the rains.  The windfall tided me through.

I finished my pre-work and it is ready for submission subject to one quick pass to the Quality Awarding Body. 

We got our visas.  ED got multiple entry while MD, OS and I got single entry visas.  We’re good to go.  Except for one, I have booked accommodation in places along our itinerary.  This is one trip I am looking forward to.

A number of activities happening simultaneous.  I’m overwhelmed at times but we can get through these.  Everything seems to be set for the upcoming event.

After a few misses and hitches, I was able to file our application for visa.  Even on the day I filed it, there was one hitch I had to deal with.  MD had to go home on a weekend she wasn’t supposed to because she missed signing her passport.

I am glad to see a change in S’s dealing with us.  I truly hope that she prove herself to be an asset and that I was right choosing her over other equally qualified applicants.

The second of our major event is turning out to be another blockbuster.  We hit almost 97% of target attendees and we’re two weeks away.  The only concern is if the over target attendance to our activities won’t eat up our entire budget.  We’re not even halfway through the year. 

K is back.  No more dishwashing for moi, H and OS.  Our grocer who missed supplying our food provision was ecstatic because our marketer is back.  

I’ve prepared all the documents needed for our travel.  I’ve filed the request for the needed certificates which is the only thing lacking.  In time, I’ll complete all pre-travel requisites. 

Totally clean slate.

The first of our major event was a success based on the turnout.  What was supposed to be a 75 pax event ballooned to 100 pax.  The speakers delivered and we had an engaged audience.

With an out of town activity, I was more prompt than late this week.

My dogs got their anti-rabies shots for free courtesy of the local veterinarian of our city and his staff who went to our home to administer the shot.  What more, I will be accommodated in the same way next year and hopefully in the next years.
