It’s only Tuesday, this week or few days rather feel like they have been going on and on. Like it should at least be Thursday. But alas, it’s Tuesday and Tuesday it shall be until Tuesday ends and Wednesday begins.
Caterers are weird. Not a single one I contacted today would talk to be beyond the basic basics without a “confirmed” Date and Location. Frustrating when I am just trying to make a budget right now.
So, I have switched from contacting caterers to contacting locations, all of them seem to big or way too formal for what I am looking for, either way too expensive. My friend Brenna said she knew a place in Windsor Heights, or the American Legion in Urbandale. She has yet to provide me with phone numbers though. I supposed I could google the American Legion in Urbandale. Fatigue has set in now though, it may well be nap time.
All the places I have contacted so far are set to do weddings. Um, don’t need another wedding, how about a big open area for dancing and hanging out? I got a DJ and a dance floor, so that is no big deal.
I may be over-estimating by saying 75 people are gonna show, but would rather over shoot the undershoot. And its 6 months for people to figure out how to get here. If I end up hosting this in a hotel, I will arrange with that hotel to give a discount to rooms. I am sure they will be willing.
I had 50+ people comment positively on Facebook in the matter of hours. I guess people want to meet me now that I am dying. A Hello Goodbye thing.
So, tomorrow I should have more places to contact. And then a list of caterers who snubbed me nicely today. Then I will have prices of the big things. I forgot to ask the DJ how much she’s gonna charge, but she’ll be gentle, she’s a friend.
We have a D&D Mumble test set up on the 25th. That way we can troubleshoot everyone’s mumble issues before the game on the 2nd. Mumble is braindead to set up, so nobody should have a problem. But better safe than sorry.
Fatigue still has a good grip on me. Tired but not sleepy. Well sometimes sleepy. Dr. Alkhateeb’s nurse Teresa said the fatigue can last a year. Yo, that would suck.
I hope Teresa got more Gatoraide from Walmart. I’m gagging and vomiting back water again. I’m getting sick, GvHD coming off these immune-suppressants. At least nothing horrible has hit yet. But Gatoraide is the only thing we found that stops the gagging and vomiting.
Well, I am tired, and Teresa is about to be home. So, I’ll let you all go. Here’s some music
