    A Look Back.

Working for the Weekend.

I made it through our first day of service, and it really wasn’t that bad.  They kind of give us a break on the first day because the service was a buffet!  We only had to deal with drink orders, serving bread, and serving the first appetizer course.  I just tried to relax and not take it so seriously – I think it worked.

We set the dining room up with four long tables of ten and twelve.

And of course we had perfect, complete place settings.  I never notice any of this stuff when I go out to eat!  There are SO many different forks and spoons in this dining room class – it is absurd.IMG_2483 (640x480)

The buffet was along the front wall, and it was served by the class that made the food, so we were off the hook.

Ready for our diners!

Sadly I have ZERO food pictures for you today :(  Sounds silly, but I can’t put my camera in the pocket of my dining room pants the way I could with my gigantic chef pants.  So it has to stay in my bag, which means sometimes I miss the really good photo opportunities.  I am going to try stashing it in the hutch tomorrow during service, shhhhh.

I am still SO TIRED and drained from Sunday night’s all-nighter.  It’s amazing how much sleep can affect you for days and days.  My entire week has been thrown off!  I feel like I am running around like a madwoman this week, and the craziness just keeps going!  Tomorrow morning I have to turn in my final application for my big internship this summer, and then tomorrow night I have to serve wine at an evening event at school (hopefully fun pics from that!).  Then Friday I have make-up classes instead of the day off, and first thing Saturday morning I am hitting the road for a 6-hour drive to Jacksonville, Florida!  WHEW!

Sunday morning, I am running 26.2 with Donna – The National Breast Cancer Marathon – (but I am running the HALF marathon) with one of my most fabulous friends, Mary Ann!


It is her FIRST half-marathon, and I promised her many months ago that if she decided to train for a race, I would drive wherever and run it with her.  I don’t know if she thought I was serious or not, but either way – I’m headed to Florida on Saturday to run a half-marathon on the BEACH!  I am so excited!! 

Mary Ann’s mother, coincidentally also named Donna, is currently in remission from her own courageous battle with breast cancer.  Donna is one of the best moms I know, and she was nice enough to let us visit for many spring break trips in college – it pays to have friends who live in Florida! :)

I am so excited to run with Mary Ann, who I haven’t seen since her wedding back in November, and to do it all in honor of her amazing and courageous mom!  I am considering running with my camera so that I can take lots of fun pictures to show you guys. 

Tonight my plan is to finish up my work and be in bed by NO later than 9pm!  I need to catch up on some serious zzzzz’s…
