Golf Outing

June 11th, 2014 at 02:07 pm

Yesterday I worked at the College's golf outing/dinner. Easy work, but it comes at the end of the day, so basically I worked from 7AM to 8:25PM yesterday.

I got a free meal, which included pulled pork, baked chicken, ribs -- oh yes, there was stuff that wasn't meat, too! I took a salad and fruit for side dishes. I was going to pass on dessert, but a colleague brought me a brownie. I also got two drink coupons so I used them for glasses of wine.

I spent $5 on raffle tickets, but didn't win anything.

At noon I mailed my DIL's birthday package -- it was $10.

I really, really wanted to go get a muffin at the station this morning, but I resisted. Part of that was that I was already carrying an umbrella as well as my train bag and I knew it would be hard to handle anything extra. I'm going to have oatmeal (which I keep in my desk) instead.

I just realized I will have an early payday this month -- the 15th is on a Sunday, so we will get paid on the 13th instead. Yikes, it's Friday the 13th! So glad I'm not superstitious!

    I do. It's such a pick-me-up in the morning!

    If getting a muffin on your way to the train is such a joy, why not include it in your food budget? If it's just a joy because it's not part of the plan...keep your thrill!

    I admire your willingness and co operation to regularly volunteer 4-5 hours at least once a month for employer after hour programs. Most employees expect time and a half, double time off in lieu or at minimum an honorarium. You are so kind to consider some food acceptable. I hope you get to box up leftovers to extend meals and save you time from kitchen duties.

    The occasional muffin is on my internal list of acceptable things to do! But since it is high in price and calories, I try to keep it occasional.

    Volunteering at events is part of the job in development, and everyone understands that. I'm a salaried employee, so I don't get overtime, or anything like that, but I do get comp time. I took off a couple of hours earlier yesterday. And I do love the little goodies! Actually, our whole department benefits from the food left over from events -- our break room is always full of treats.
