Tuesdays are typically pretty crazy around here- there is a pick-up from Wal-Mart immediately followed by a lunch delivery that each week has me running around like crazy trying to get everything done. I think today takes the cake. I received a call this morning from Wal-Mart asking me to bring a truck- a sure sign we’d have lots of eggs to sort. And we did- 300 pounds worth. With the help of our all-star volunteer Lauren I was able to get done in time for the lunch shift.
I packed everything up and headed to Buena Vista. Much to my surprise, upon arriving at our delivery site I saw staff only in a CPR training session. They apologized profusely for not calling to cancel the shift. I didn’t want our delicious sloppy joes to go to waste, so I called over to another partner agency located in Buena Vista- the Magnolia Center- to see if they would accept a spur of the moment lunch offer. They did and volunteers Amy, Patty and I headed their direction to serve some of my favorite clients a bonus meal (we’ll be back Friday).
Back to the kitchen for clean-up, and low and behold the faucet comes off our three compartment sink, soaking the surrounding area and my shirt. Luckily I have extra CKP shirts at the kitchen!!! I put in a quick call to Kenny (the plumbing supervisor for W&L Facilities Management) and he has already come by to fix it.
So quite the chaotic day, but all’s well that ends well.
