Amazingly, I managed to make the lasagna and it turned out excellent.

I was so rattled that I kept working, and now the kitchen is clean, everything put away, and the floor done too! I've been on such a roll that I've started another turkey neck stew! LOL

Guess I've got a lot of adrenaline to burn off.
The next time you have a lot of work to do, send a note to management asking them to set the alarms off. It seems you have found a new way to get things done.

! Thanks anyway, I'd rather find a way to spend the day somewhere else. Unfortunately, the notice they gave us said they would be doing this Tuesday through Thursday.

I'm just glad it's over for another year. I probably would have done all that cooking and cleaning anyway, but with all that adrenaline, and alarms blaring, I got it done in record time.

I'm debating making some fudge that I got the ingredients for today... Nah, I'll do that tommorrow.

I don't know why I've been in such a cooking mode lately. I'm still managing to find room in the freezer and fridge.

Maybe I'll finally try to see how long I can go without having to shop.

I've had that idea in mind for awhile, but never actually tried it.

Great! I hope you get things cleared up and nice for everyone! Already know you will do a good job!

I'm recuperating from the marathon bookkeeping session. I took a three hour nap. I still feel like a wet dish rag, but at least my brain is working again.

I have emailed PDFs of all the reports to the other members of the executive. When they have had a look, they will go to our auditor. That's not for a formal audit. It's just for club purposes. Our auditor is a club member who has stepped up to the plate at the last minute. I think he has an accounting background.

Yeah, I will probably wind up being the treasurer next year.

And thanks everyone for all the encouragement. It helped me get through this mess to know that you guys were rooting for me.
