Quite the day!

February 21st, 2009 at 05:38 am

I made a date with my mom (nana) tonight. SHe has been housebound most of the last several weeks because she broke her foot in a fall...She got the foot "boot" off recently and is more I thought it would be fun to take her to dinner. She INSISTED on paying because I have been her 'taxi' for several weeks.

We went to a small neighborhood Italian place that is quite quaint. Loved it. A couple of employees from my job came in...and so I secretly asked the waitress to let me pay their tab...both are struggling financiallly right now, so it was the right thing to do.... we left before their food arrived, so I am sure it was a surprise when there was no bill at the end of their meal.

It always makes me feel good to do something nice like that. Definately a 'funk' lifter!!!

I had an opportunity to peomote my assistant recently, which leaves that position open again. I will be interviewing several candidates next week. Thankfully, we have lots of great talent on staff!! Hopefully I can get her replacement up and running quickly. The best part is that my assistant was promoted to another position on my team, so she can help train our newbie..which will be very nice!

I am watching one of those cheap 'previously viewed' movies that I bought last week....I know the ones I picked out will pay for themselves because they are movies I can watch again and again...I just finished watching Sense and Sensability tonight...such a good one! Now I am watching 'No Reservations'...I tell u....guys dont know what they're missing with chick

Tomorrow is my home alone day...although I doubt I will stay home all day. I do have a chore list...but I plan to have some "me" time in there too to go do something adventurous and fun....we'll see. Well, back to the movie....

    What a great day! That was so nice of you to pay for the employees' dinners.

    They must not be SA-ers, though, or they probably wouldn't be out to dinner if they are struggling financially! LOL. That was my first thought, but maybe it was their one-and-only pre-budgeted entertainment for the month so they wouldn't feel deprived. There, that sounds better.

    Hey I like a lot of chick flicks. There goes whats left of my manhood. LOL. Never heard of the 2 you mentioned though. I'll have to check if I can get them from the library.

    Very nice of you about paying at the restaurant.
