Administrative Professionals Day

Wednesday, April l 25th was Administrative Professionals Day. I never remember that it is coming up, so I'm always surprised.

Last year, when I went to get the mail Pastor Phil sent me to his house before I came back to the office. When I got there the kids had prepared a treasure hunt for me using Bible references. It was so much fun and the "treasure" was a 12 pack of Diet Coke that was in the bottom of their little pond (it was wrapped very well with duct tape). I didn't realize until the end of that whole search that is was Administrative Professionals Day. (I was wondering why they decided to do this for me; I'm slow sometimes.)

When I got back, I went through my apartment to go up to the office and found that the guys had hidden Diet Coke all over my apartment. It was over 100 cans. I think that there is still some hiding because I found a couple cans a few weeks ago. I deserve it after all the April Fool's jokes.

I was pleasantly surprised this year to find such a wonderful present.

Once again after I came back from getting the mail, I found this beautiful wind chime hanging from the ceiling fan. I love wind chimes and had just told my mom that I wanted to get a big one to hang outside my door and join my two little ones.

For now, it is still hanging in the office. Partly because I can't get it down, and I also think that everyone likes to walk by and make beautiful music.

Thanks guys!

My sister is a secretary now so the pastors sent her and the other church secretaries (4 of them, I think) out to Olive Garden for lunch. That's the only reason I knew about Admin Prof Day. Enjoy your windchimes! What fun!

I took it so easy on my bosses by being on vacation during Administrative Professionals Day. I'm going to have to bring it up to them...Anyway, the chimes are beautiful & I can't wait to hear them in person (sometime I'll drive out...could it be that I need to get away only 4 days after returning from Hawaii?)
