the good and the bad…
Is there any other word?
I was only home for a few minutes today in between basketball games and Saturday errands…and in phone contact all day with the team trying to deal with the freakishly overwhelming registration process this morning.
I think that the only way to explain what went wrong this morning… is to imagine me as a 9-month-pregnant woman trying to squeeze into a pair of my kindergarten daughters jewel-jeans! Just AIN’T happenin’!
I guess it comes down to taking the good with the bad..
The good thing is that we set out to create a wonderful event:
A complete overall experience…the same for everyone…
In a beautiful place, bringing people together that could enjoy and connect.
The good thing is that outstanding companies have been delighted to participate, and excited to support and sponsor our vision.
The good thing is that we learned many valuable lessons the first go-around, and we are benefiting from experience!
The good thing is that as a Creative Escape Executive Committee, we all have the same vision, goals and purpose behind creating this event… and are willing to commit the resources needed to meet and exceed our own high expectations!
The good thing is that this year, I have 7 weeks to recover from childbirth, rather than 4. (smirk)
The bad thing… is that we can’t accommodate everyone who wants to come.
Man, I wish we could. I am so sorry for the disappointment, and for the frustration!
the dust is still settling from registration- those of you on the waiting list will be accommodated as we are able… please know that we are doing everything possible to get as many in as we can!
To those of you who got in… CONGRATS!!! And we’ll see you in SEPT
(don’t worry, it’s a dry heat!)
