Registration Day Replacement Santa 🎁

  1. β€’
    It looked like this outside today.
    The federal government had a 3 hour delay. Schools in my county were closed.
  2. β€’
    But I had to think about summer camp!!!
  3. β€’
    Camp registration day!!! 🎢It's the most horrible day of the year 🎢
  4. β€’
    This was actually day 2 of 3.
    The second day of opening 2 of 4 sleep away camps at 10am for online registration. The other one is day camps.
  5. β€’
    But today the camp I'm the registrar for opened.
    It sucks.
  6. β€’
    We bring in snacks and wear sweatpants.
    To get through it.
  7. β€’
    At 10:00am there were 1,500 people on the website trying to sign their daughters up for camp.
  8. β€’
    At 10:05 people start calling and emailing to complain and get help.
  9. β€’
    These moms take camp SO SERIOUSLY.
  10. β€’
    People lose their minds and perspective.
    If my daughter can't go to camp with her three cousins in one program during a certain week and you swear on your life they're in the same cabin or they're not going to camp and you ruined our summer, she needs this or she'll die.
  11. β€’
    I got yelled at over the phone.
    Every year. And you have to be polite even though she's being mean and unreasonable over a one week program getting filled and not listening to me trying to help.
  12. β€’
    It's chaos and reminds me of a digital and phone version of Black Friday.
  13. β€’
    I got home late and I'm so tired.
  14. β€’
    But wait... what's that?
  15. β€’
    The first day since I signed up for Secret I didn't look for my gift. Because I was so dead I forgot.
  16. β€’
    Cards from Etsy with compliments Leslie gave Anne on Parks & Rec!
    Wait, I JUST wrote about how Galentine's Leslie I am in the TV characters list!!
  17. β€’
    Camp life πŸ‘ ayooooo
  18. β€’
    And there was another big envelope! Air mail!!!
  19. β€’
    With a littler envelope inside with my name and you can see I was so excited I didn't take my hat or scarf or jacket off before opening it all...
  20. β€’
    Omg it's me.
  21. β€’
    And so many sweet words!
  22. β€’
    From my Registration Day Angel πŸ‘Ό
  23. β€’
    Like actually, cleaning my specs from tearing on up.
    You really read all about me and made me feel cared for! Which is not how I feel at all on registration day, so thank you.
  24. β€’
    Someday, when I'm not laying around crying about things, I'll try to do some of these!
  25. β€’
    Also, it's very important I mention Judy was VERY impressed by the gifts.
  26. β€’
    "Where are those places?"
  27. β€’
    "Okay stop looking at all the thoughtful presents already and pet me!"
  28. β€’
    .... THANK YOU SO MUCH, @estherlimtf !!!!!!!!!!
