I have a HUGE, HUGE unexpected project to tackle today. A Retirement Party feeding about 50 people!! I know, I know, a retirement is not unexpected however, I work with all men! I have been off work and assumed somebody else planned something. That has never happened before but, I was sure hoping it would happen this time.

I have several factors working against me.

1) Lack of time to plan (today only)

2) I can't depend on people to bring something ("I forgot to tell my wife" they do anything for themselves?!)

3) My daughter has 2 Dr appointments today to prepare for her surgery (how many hours are in a day?)

What did I decide to do? Well, my time is more important than money today. Did I just say that?! I went straight to a restaurant and paid a rediculous price but, it will all be ready and waiting for me when I go to work. I got table clothes and the works.

Nobody should work somewhere for 30yrs and not have an all out celebration when they finally get to retire!!

Hopefully, you are going to make all 50 men chip it for the cost!
