The weekend was just absolutely amazing, two wonderful days at work lol....I mean in the country. Saturday was the annual Donor Appreciation Lunch and with over 80 guests and my "customer smile" I ended up working in the boutique before and after Lunch, even though I was a guest. I don't mind, I don't really call that work. It was nice to meet up with familiar faces and meet new donkey lovers. There were tears, as some of them heard for the first time about the loss of donkeys and some cried because it was "their" donkey that passed away. There were laughter as Adam tried to get an aging crowd into the 21 century with his jokes. There were good news about the weight management group and my Orly was announced as the "biggest loser" with having lost an tremendous amount of weight...way to go Sweetpea! (oh and I found it). There was an update on the destruction of the DSC, as our construction is called right now, and well lots of chit chat going on. The boutique was busy with sales and we took lots of donations in. Just great to see that little plan from 20 years ago grow into this operation of today.
Four o'clock came fairly quickly that day and it seemed that I had survived my first alone day without any problems or issues. It sure is great when you work in a great team and everybody is pitching in and supporting each other. Again....a foreign concept to some. lol.
