I survived the three days from hell.
You know that monthly big meeting I have? Usually, it’s 3-woman team running the show.Â Last month, we lost Eva so it was a 2-woman team.Â This time, Celeste is off in Amsterdam/Germany, so guess who ran the show…on top of everything that needs to be done for the gala 2 weeks away?
I did it. With the help of my colleagues at work.Â Everyone pitched in.Â Everyone handed in his/her stuff as requested.Â People were doubling up duties left and right and at some point I just held the helm and enjoyed the ride.
Oh, and I ran back to throw an office birthday party after that (thanks to another colleague who picked up the cookie-cake for me).Â Then, after all the early start, I stopped for a meeting at the brand new hotel down the street to get another donation for my silent auction.
So, what did this girl do to celebrate her achievement?
I got a pedicure.Â And would’ve gone for a chair massage too but the day spa I used to go to doesn’t have that any more.Â Then I made Penne with beef and arugula pasta salad with parmesan biscuits (cheated with Pillsbury dough plus fresh parm-reg grated on top) and settled in for a few hours of Top Gear and Anthony Bourdain’s No Reservation in San Paolo.Â Topped it all off with 3 shots of Limoncello and wanting more.
Pallini Limoncello.Â It’s worth every penny.
And tomorrow, back to the long day schedule.
Did I mention that I am starting to go to work 1-1.5 hour earlier everyday until the event is over?
Oh yes, babies.Â Bring on more Limoncello!
