Sometimes I find myself doing the most interesting things. This evening I was a caterer. After work I went to my church. There was a staff party and they had hired a caterer and she needed volunteers to help and so I went down to help. I helped make eggplant parmesan, and make bread look pretty, I even put brown sugar on creme brulle and then used a torch to burn it. Though of course highlights. I also made coffee, bussed tables, did dishes, dried dishes, cleaned up after everyone left. She needed the help, no question. But it is a little weird to go and do that. I don't really cook and hate to clean and yet here I am volunteering to do these things.
One my favorite parts is how I can't touch anything hot. I don't really understand how people hold things that are burning hot. I can't do it. So I would be doing something the hard way, as not to get burned, and then someone would come up and help do it the easy way and tell me "its not that hot." That is fine. I don't mind that I have feeling in fingers.
The evening went well. I did my best not to come home with leftovers, because as you know I hate leftovers. So all I came home with was half a bag of marshmallows and a large container of hot chocolate. The fun part is I am only 95% sure it was made with water and not milk. So I should be able to drink it but the milk in the chocolate my give me trouble. (Being lactose intolerant is totally fun.)
Ok right now i am so frustrated. There is a house, not right across the street but next to the house across the street. Anyways they have loud Christmas music playing. It is so loud I can hear it in my house. Now let me clarify. I don't think there is anyone home, there car is not in the drive. Also it is 11:45 at night. I kind of want to go bang on their door and ask them to turn it off or just go try to turn it off myself. But I don't know how they are sleeping through it. Or for that fact any of my other neighbors. I mean it is really very loud I am sure that many houses can hear it. Bleh... I kind of want to be a chicken and call the non-emergency police line to report a noise disturbance. Make someone else go to the door because I don't want to. But that would be so chicken of me. So instead I whine to you about it. Sorry :(
Work went good. We had about ten kids absent which made a big difference. Thirty-five instead of forty-five kids makes a huge difference. I also had lots of helpers so that was great. Plus the kindergarten class had a birthday party so most of those kids went home early. Really it went amazingly. God really took care of everything, there was nothing to worry about.
Alright I need to go to sleep. Or at least try with this background music. Tomorrow I need to clean the fridge and I babysit tomorrow night which should be good. I hate missing Saturday night service at my church but Sat. are such big babysitting nights. Did I mention this week I got three new babysitting jobs for the month. So instead of two I have five. I will miss both tomorrow's sat service and the one next week. But such is life. I will listen to the podcast afterwards.
