Administrative Assistant has always cut her hours in the summer. Of course, this year, she wasn't able to cut them until July, when I was out of town. Today we were in the office together again for the first time since my vacation. She didn't leave at 1:00 today, as she did last month. In fact, she didn't leave at 3:00, which is her normal winter quitting time. It was 4:00 before she got away. It was another crazy day in the office, with lots of phone calls. The bulletin for the memorial service tomorrow is done, and I wrote some more newsletter articles. We'd like to have the newsletter out on Thursday. We're both grateful that we're having worship in the park this Sunday. I don't have to preach, and she doesn't have to worry about doing a bulletin.
August is always a busy month. There is just so much to do as we get ready for the fall program to start in September. Since we're starting a number of new programs this fall, it is especially crazy. I don't think AA will be leaving at 1:00 this month.
