Volunteers keep me from drowning

My nephew Brendan (13) helped me collect today. He looks very cheerful doing such a crazy obsessive activity with his auntie. I am feeling the weight of these 'sticks, so I had him push the cart. We are behind schedule in washing and so tomorrow morning (Saturday) I will be washing just to keep up. Yesterday, he and another volunteer, Jackson, and I washed about 10,000+ and set them out to dry. It must have been about 3.5 hours in labor. I will have an approximate count tomorrow. We are using an anti-mold spray to prevent that mold thing from happenning.

But like I said, I am feeling the weight. Indigo asked me how long I was going to keep on collecting. I just don't feel like I am done yet.
