My Busy Weekend
Well, what can I say. It was another one of those whirlwind weekends. This one started on Friday.
I was off work Friday so I could care for my grandson who has not been feeling well. Since my daughter did not have to be at work until later, my sister, who up from Florida with her husband, and I went shopping and had an early lunch before I had to rush back home. She treated me to Chinese.
Saturday I took two of the granddaughters who are performing at Disney next month to their baton practice on Saturday afternoon.
I spent the afternoon making a set of decorative bottles to donate to the silent auction at Sunday’s spaghetti dinner fundraiser.
Then on Saturday evening several family members went to my oldest daughter’s for a chili dinner and game night.
My sister fixed a large pot of chili with baked potatoes. The rest of us provided desserts. After we ate several of us played some of our favorite board games. We all had a great time.
Sunday, the girls that could needed to be at our last fundraiser early. They performed their Disney routine throughout the afternoon. When they were not performing they were waiting tables and competing for tips. The top waitress received a gift for her efforts. Which brought up some conflict for one of my granddaughters.
The younger of the 2 girls who were waiting tables was working more diligently then the older one, or so I was told. However, the older of the two, had more in tips due to the fact that her father had given her $100 to put in tip jar. That left her approximately $30 ahead of the younger one in the end. She was extremely upset. But, to put a better ending to the story, Ms. Winner, gave her cousin a gift from the bag that she received as a prize. Then to make this a frugal ending, Ms. Second Place, decided to give it to her younger cousin who is crazy about Tinkerbell. The gift was a Tinkerbell scrap booking kit. Ms. Loves Tinkerbell has a birthday coming up soon so we decided it would make a nice birthday present. Yeah!
As an final note, our fundraiser earned close to $2500 to add to total raised. It has been a great fundraising year for us.
Tell me about your weekend. What did you accomplish?
