It's here at last. The tour begins in 3 hours and I am ready and waiting. Nancy Thompson has set up her work in my family room, and Meredith Arnold should be setting up in an hour or so. Meredith had a family emergency and couldn't get here to set up yesterday. We are crossing our fingers that she will be able to make it today. However, if her family needs her, than that is the way it will be. We will miss her if she cannot make it.
I handled preparations for the tour a lot better this year than I have the past three years. I did a little each day, slowly moving toward the tour. By the time it came, I was all ready, with no stress. What a concept!
