For those of you who don't know the restaurant business...you may not realize that Mother's Day is the busiest day of the year for restaurants. We had sat 540 guests yesterday. It was a lot of preparation, but our staff did a tremendous job. I was very proud of them. The day started out a little hectic when I called Home Depot to order a patio heater. They told me no problem and I told them one of my staff would be by to pick it up...here's my credit card info, etc....THEN the store manager told me that they would not accept payment over the phone. How was I supposed to slip away for a few minutes to buy a heater? So Lowes came through. My staff picked it up and put it together. It was a little chilly and I wanted to make the guests that had to sit on the patio warmer and this would do the trick. The assembly started around 10:30am and we didn't get it properly working until 5pm! Ohh well...we have it now and I am sure it will come in handy on cool nights in the spring and winter.
To my MOM: Happy Mother's Day!
I spent most of this cold and rainy Monday in bed...resting!
