Monday Means I Have Lots To Say. Sorry.

Here is that Saturday Mother's Day program in progress...

Saturday turned out fine.  My program was well attended, but not too crazy for the smaller room.  And a good time was had by all.  I will admit, though, that the best part of that day was probably going home to DR.  

Sunday turned out to be lots of fun.  I hosted the Mother's Day luncheon and the whole family was there, minus Secret Agent Man.  His job in the deli at Albertsons pretty much requires him to work every Sunday, which tends to be a very busy deli day.  Still, that made it 14, counting me.  I wasn't feeling too daring, so I just made spaghetti.  Easy to make for a crowd and everyone likes it.  We ate and visited and it was really a good time.  After everyone went home, Girlie Girl, Handsome Lad and I rested up for awhile, then we went over to Kick Back Dude's house for our dinner.  So, I got lots of time in with the babies, which was very sweet.  I really couldn't have asked for a better Mother's Day.  

Today begins the first day of volunteer interviews for this summer's reading program.  We have 50 applicants and can probably not take more than 35 volunteers.  It is always hard when we can't take everyone who wants to help out, but believe me, you don't want to have too many teenagers hanging about with not enough work...not fun for anyone.  I still feel like I am picking up a lot of the slack in preparing for this summer, but it is just because the two people in the dept. who get paid more than me are too new to know all that needs to be done.  Don't worry, I am teaching them :-)  I'm more than happy to be the #3 in the dept., as long as I am not doing #1 and #2's work.  I'm sure by next summer it will be better.  

I hope you all had a good weekend and are looking towards a good week.  I also hope my daily poems aren't too distracting.  I have to say, I am really enjoying doing them.  Stop in tomorrow for Talk Talk Tuesday and please make sure to Choose and Defend on Wednesday!

It sounds great. I'd wish you a happy Mother's Day, but it looks like you already had one.

The luncheon sounds great! Glad you got to spend it with so much of your family!

Tara said...

A party of 14 sounds pretty family-oriented! Spaghetti is always a great choice!

I'm glad you enjoyed Mother's Day!

Secret: Thanks. And yeah! My second oldest son is Secret Agent Man...he has been the guy doing his thing since he was 2.

Churlita: Thank you, it was really nice.

MrManuel: It gets harder and harder to get everyone together at once, so I really do enjoy it.

Tara: Spaghetti, lasagna, and chili are my go-to foods for more than a couple of people :-)

NoRegrets: Thank you so much. I really appreciate that.

hey chica! Sounds like work is keeping you busy, like always! better to have too many volunteers than too few I suppose ;)

Sebastien: Yes, busy busy worky time. And you're right, I'd take some questionable help rather than not enough help.
