We had our local hospice dinner and auction last Saturday. Our Red Hat Ladies group was recruited to wait tables. My daughter, who is under 50 so is a pink hatter, and I were the only ones who had ever waited tables before. (She is now a dental assistant and I am an investment advisor's assistant so we aren't in the shape we once were!) DD and I were off like a shot delivering salads and the other eight ladies tried to keep up. We were serving just under 200 people. Main course and dessert followed and of course we cleaned away dishes between courses. We were there for just over 3 hours and I was so exhausted my DD drove me home, did my dishes when we got there, took my dogs out and sent them to bed, and then made sure I was comfy in my chair before she headed 45 miles to her house (she really is the most wonderful person!). When I went to bed I tossed and turned and twitched and jerked all night! Really over did it! So, even if it's for a good cause, BE CAREFUL!! Our health has to come first! Next time I will stand on the sidelines and direct traffic!! (BTW I donated a carving to the silent auction and it went for $100! My first sale!!) Hugzz Greenbean Stop and smell the puppies!
