May 1st, 2010. We are already through 4 months of the year. Where did the time go?
I work for one company of a group of companies owned by the same people. They recently bought a soccer team and in conjunction with their annual open house for customer during the day, they had a bbq for the staff last night as a sort of "welcome to the family"
I got my sister and her husband to come so I could get a ride as the place they were having this is way on the other side of the city and I would never have been able to get there on the bus.
I was told it would be hamburgers and hot dogs, so I wasn't sure what else would be there. My BIL is on a very low carb program right now (and has lost over 40 pounds so far - yea him) so he was thinking that he might not be able to eat much and might have to go the a restaurant for a steak or something after, but it turned out they had a TON of food, lots of salads, there was a ceasar, a greek, veggie tray, fruit tray and I never even went over to the dessert table. The company I work for catered the shindig and as we were leaving, BIL said that is that is a sample of the catering we do, WOW!
I will pass that comment on to those who worked the whole day long and still were cheerful (well at least to the outside world - I am sure they were dog tired but didn't let it show!
Today is an open house where my nephew works - again hamburger and hot dogs. Not sure if there will be anything else besides that, but......
After that we are hoping to get down to our church stake centre for a display they are having and sounds really wonderful. It is a pictorial of the life of Christ. Not sure if that means it is painting, from one artist, or several. I guess I have to see it to find out what it's all about.
So I guess I better get ready as I have about an hour before they come to get me. Busy day ahead! Onward ho!
