Burger Burns Make a Girl Tired

So, Hubs's squadron is having a picnic in 2 weeks. So they need to do fundraisers...right? RIGHT! THEY being the key word there. But it has definitely turned into a ME type of effort. Like I don't have my hands full already.

In the past 3 days I have been to Wal Mart 4 times....it's back to school time....that is the LAST place I want to be!

I got enough hamburgers, chips, plates, drinks, napkins, and buns to feed 200 people. And I spent 16 hours yesterday baking cookies...peanut butter, chocolate chip, sugar, and white chocolate macadamia nut to be exact. 600 cookies! I am flipping TIRED! But I am not done yet.....I still have to get everything for the grill to get it up there.

But I guess that's what I get for being a super awesome person who can't say no! Or maybe I'm using it as an excuse to not clean for my in laws...either way I am flat out worn out.

Do any of you help your husbands with stuff for their jobs? Or am I just completely crazy?!?!?

Hi there! I normally just lurk, but I figured I could actually answer today! :) I am in a very similar boat. The hubby says that his shop wants to do a fundraiser/bake sale to get a gazebo and can I make 10 cakes, a few hundred cookies, and a couple dozen pans of brownies. Why do they even need a gazebo! This is ALASKA! Sorry, you touched a nerve there. :) Love the blog by the way!

At times. It comes and goes in spurts. We have had the squadron picnic at our house for the last 2 years. We were stationed in NM from '04-'06 :) Loved the hiking and hot air ballooning there!
