It's Quiet... A Reflection on the Past Month

Tonight is the first night on the job in a while during which I haven't had to deal with an influx of visitors. We had our normal post-fundraiser levels of visitation, but everybody was gone by 6PM. This being the first night of Eastern Standard Time, it got dark early. We had a handful of technicians striking the sites and equipment from our fundraiser. I bid them goodnight, and told them that I would have the service gate unlocked for them before leaving at 8AM. Yeah, we're still understaffed, and we have one more fundraiser going on at this time. I'll be working two double shifts this week...

Before wrapping up this post, I have to make a note about our new Director of Events, who was hired at the end of July. Although she's only been with the organization for two months, I can't shake the feeling that I've been working with her for years. She was thrown into the deep end of the pool at the start of her employment here, and she made it through without losing her sense of humor... October is not an easy month for us, but I can't say that we didn't have fun, even while we were all getting our butts kicked.

Two more fund-raisers and you're done. Just in time for Egg Nog to return to the grocery store shelves! You'll be deserving a couple strong ones.

I keep a bottle of Tullamore Dew in the house for medicinal purposes.
