2 More Days!!
Its hard to believe that there is only 2 more days until the wedding! Boy did that time ever go fast! I'm excited for it to get here but then again it will be all over....sort of like Christmas Day in a kids mind.
We gave the final count for the rehearsal dinner today...19 Prime Rib and 18 Chicken Parmesan...plus one Chicken Tenders (for Grande's girlfriend who requested that!)...and 2 kids meals. We made the decision to not have an open bar. I know Venti isn't going to be too happy about this, but we talked about it and decided that we are having a nice dinner for everyone and its not a night to be drinking and possibly drinking too much and then having a hangover the morning of the wedding! Our thoughts are that if they want a drink (other then soda, tea, coffee), then they can get it themselves...besides the fact of the cost involved! We are already racking that bill up at $25 a plate + tax and tip! What do you guys think about that? Should we have an open bar...or no?
Joe is taking the boys tomorrow to pick up the tuxes...I have to work and so I can't go....:(
That's another $500+! I just hope everyone's fit and I'll be anxious to see them!
Speaking of work...well you know about how my boss quit last Friday....Well yesterday the boss of the boss called me and offered me a promotion! Well sort of a promotion...she offered me a $1.00 an hour raise (woot!) and the opportunity for advancement....in 90 days. She is giving me a Mentor that will show me the ins and outs of the "manager's" job and then in 90 days if all goes well I will be the Assistant Manager....then after another 6 months if all goes well I'll be offered the Manager's position....the store will not have a manager until I become the manager....but hummmm....I was just wondering how can I be an Assistant Manager if there is no Manager?? I am running the store now and doing everything the manager did....for a lot less money.....but I'm looking at the future and hoping that I'll be reciprocated for all my efforts. I guess time will tell! One more day of work and them I am off on Friday!!
Can anyone tell me what one gets their child for a wedding present?? I am at a loss...do I get a gift.....gift cards....money....and if I give money...how much? I really have no idea!! If anyone has any suggestions I would greatly appreciate it!
