desk + wine = job gets done!
Yesterday, I actually worked away from my home - at my desk, at the post for 4 hours - then took some of the work home to finish, because the Husband and I, share the car and he had to get to work. I ate my lunch there - had a glass of wine while I worked...I'm telling you, if every office-type job, had a bar and allowed you to have a glass of wine, 2 things would happen:
1. Some people would never get anything done
2. The others would relax and enjoy their job more.
The latter would be me. Of course I know that would never happen.
No, yesterday I went in to bail out our Treasurer and Secretary who is one person doing the 2 jobs, plus she works 2 jobs and is our volunteer bartender at the post. And her car broke down so she is behind in all of her Auxiliary work. We have these deadlines - The $30 for the Bond on the President and Treasurer needed to be paid and sent out ASAP. We also needed to get our bank situation changed over from last years officers - we almost have that done. Membership dues had to be sent out along with a newsletter. A few other smaller tasks - so I went in and it all got done! (with 1 glass of wine) GRANTED I worked on it all, till about 8pm last night. By the time I went to bed, I was exhausted. Today I just have to get stamps and mail out everything. Whew!
Now I do share a office with some other board members from the Post but they are usually not there when I am. Plus we have a computer there, with a printer - I'm like a little girl in a candy shop. Now yesterday, I was not alone. Another gal had to come in to help me but we had an enjoyable time.
Too bad I don't get paid for this- but then again, that would ruin all the fun. (no wine)
