Friday Mission Center Conference

Today Leslie and I are leaving for Springfield Missouri for our Mission Center Conference. We will be back tomorrow afternoon. I am all packed and ready to go. Missy, my cat, sees the suitcase and is suspicious. She hates it when I go off and leave her even for a day. I will ask Bob to check on her. She likes him as much as she likes anyone. She really doesn't like anyone but me and she doesn't like me much but I am her staff.

If she hates the trip today just wait until I leave for a week to go to Hawaii. She will really be unhappy then.

I will leave in about 30 minutes for my hair appointment in Independence. I will be back by 8:00. We have exercises from 9:00 until 10:00.

I didn't sleep too well last night. I awoke at 2:00 AM and it was off and on from then on.

I am hoping to recruit staff for the next summer's camp this weekend while a lot of people are at the conference. I would really like to combine the two camps and have it in June. June is when the short camp is held. It is cooler. I think we only need one camp. When I attempted to recruit staff for the camp I directed last year which is held in July, I found many people had gone to the short June camp and were not going to attend the July one. July is very hot in Missouri. I am taking my material to this conference in hopes I can begin getting staff early. I got staff early last year but unfortunately four people had to back out...some of them at almost the last minute. It was very difficult to get replacements at that time. I was stressed over it.

Have a safe trip, Margie. I hope you get your camp staff. It's so hard now days to get people to help. Everyone is so busy.
Poor Missy doesn't know what's coming.

No she doesn't. :)

She'll survive thought. :)

You're right about that though. Everyone wants a camp and they want their children to be there but most don't want to have to help.
