In 30 minutes I am supposed to be setting up to receive 24 8 year old boys that will begin arriving in as little as 45 minutes. I am not familiar enough with the procedures of the group and have nothing prepared. I need 1 hour to buy supplies and the hardware store around the corner is now closed. I also cannot leave the house. I almost stopped at Home Depot on the way home but didn’t want to lug my dog pee smelling briefcase, calendar and bag of scout paperwork into the store and didn’t want to leave it unguarded in the Jeep. I had two weeks to prepare for this. Now I have half an hour.
Sums me up pretty good.
ps. in this same 30 minutes I have to prepare dinner for the family and we have no food in the house.
