Thursday at work was packed with people filing by my desk telling me all the things that didn't get done while I was gone. All the things the custodians missed or just didn't bother doing.
I forgot to order dinner napkins before I left and we just about ran out! Thankfully there was a case reserved for our Thanksgiving event so we used those this weekend and I'll be able to order more tomorrow.
Our main coffee maker broke Thursday night and we came to work to find the floor flooded. I called the company and the repair guy didn't see the request so he showed up on Friday, just 3 hours before a huge event!
Thankfully he was able to fix it. Or so we thought. We were able to use the coffee maker Friday night but the floor was flooded again when we came in Saturday morning.
Saturday afternoon we had a large memorial.
Sunday morning we had a huge Missions Lunch.
We spent this weekend making coffee downstairs, putting the large cambros on carts, wheeling them into the elevator and bringing them into the Commons. (That's the room where we have our biggest events. The broken coffee maker is just feet from the Commons.)
And there were a hundred other little things that happened that could turn into major issues if not taken care of. Sigh.
Also on Friday Chuck had an endoscopy. He was put completely out and they put a probe down his throat to check his esophagus, stomach and small intestine. I can't remember if I've mentioned it on here but he's preparing to have weight loss surgery. We've spent the last 3-4 months seeing surgeons and nutritionists and fitness experts... We'll find out the results of the endoscopy on Monday.
Surprising Sharaya in San Diego
The girl cousins
Today the 5 of us (Me, Chuck, Beth, Sharaya and Allie) went out to The Olive Garden for lunch and we gave them both a small gift. Beth is now 35 and Sharaya is 33. Oh my word.
I suddenly feel very old.
