5:45am --showered, did hair and just a touch of makeup. Looked for something to wear.
6:30 a.m. -- all dressed for work in a wrinkle-free jacket. Grabbed a bagel and headed out the door.
Construction all the way...O.K. I don't drive that far, but it's annoying nonetheless.
This is where I pull into the driveway at work. I am lucky that I didn't get hit by that big yellow thing.
Once I was safely at my desk, the day flew by with activities like these:
I did contracts for a few group room bookings and a cancellation, I met with a bride/groom to get their final wedding set up and menu details, I spent over 30 minutes on the phone with one client that I've spent three weeks explaining why food prices had to increase and why it was still a bargain (today he finally agreed and faxed over a signed contract for the remainder of the year). I always spend a lot of time on the telephone at work, (which is why I hate to talk on the phone when I get home). I did the daily deposit and the daily labor, I input a couple of new employees into the payroll system and terminated a few, and I made a report for the Big K to show how much the increase in the minimum wage would affect us for the remainder of '08 and for 2009.
It seemed like I barely looked up and it was 3:30 p.m. I like days like today. Busy with no major problems.
Dinner was grilled chicken breasts with a skewer of red peppers and Vidalia onions.
Vidalia onion season is nearly over. We hate to see them go, so I decided to chop up a few and freeze them.
I filled a Folger's coffee can. They will taste great in November on a grilled steak.
And here it is 7:00 p.m. and I am winding down with this post while watching a parody of Bill Gates last day at Microsoft.
It's been a good day.
