|Kay behind the table looking after the money!|
We made a total of $535--down from last year but still pretty good! It was a really slow day for people and I think we should have the sale on Wednesdays--as that's pizza day in the restaurant and it brings folks in, even from surrounding businesses and offices. That's when we had it last year. A resident won the raffle food basket, and Gabie, an LPN from 6Y won $82 in the 50/50 draw. That was a really nice win, because she takes the time to talk to the residents on that unit and find out what their dreams are. She then writes up the application for them. She's the reason we have tons of dreams from that unit. I wish other staff put in even a fraction of that effort!! So I was really happy to see her get the money!!

Those of you who know me know how much I love to bake--but forced baking loses its appeal very quickly, let me tell you!! I think I will take a break for a while. Oh, wait! I have to bake more shamrock green sugar cookies for Saturday!! Acccckkkkk!!
