The Minions are at it again!
The first thing we do on Monday morning is now check the toilet paper roll in the bathroom to see what our humorous Elders A & W have left, and we weren't disappointed today. Just in case you can't read it, this is what it says. "The Olsens" Wish we could hold on to Y'all but this will help wipe away the tears. Pretty cute!
We went into the office at 7:30 this morning because I had some things to get done before the phone started ringing and our Monday meeting started. My intention was to put away the commissary items we'd purchased last week. They were still on the counter in the back room. I never even made it to the back. Fortunately, Sister O put things away and finished filling the orders so we'd almost be ready for Wednesday. I say almost because one zone still hasn't sent in their order. I'm not sure what they'll get once they do. Up front I was prepping for the meeting--new calendars, birthday cards to sign, itineraries for the Wall's (2 visa waiters leaving today, 10 coming from the Provo & Mexico MTC's on Wednesday and 9 leaving on Thursday), updated arrival and departure list (we've already started receiving notification of incoming missionaries for August), getting the folders ready for the Wall's including mail, certificates to sign, and a variety of other things. AND the referrals just keep coming in! I'm just wondering how this is all going to come together after the O's leave.
This is a follow-up on Elder Fontenot's sausage and the YW fundraiser. I don't know how many po' boys you can get from a pound of sausage, but they made them on the hoagie rolls from Sam's Club, so my guess it 2-3. They sold completely out of them, making the Young Women happy because they surpassed their goal. It was a tax-free weekend, so the store where they set up their project was very busy. While there was a little bit of slow time the girls rotated so they could eat their lunch. One of the girls took a bite out of her po' boy then put it back in the wrapper and put it down so she could do something else. When she turned around one of the other girls had sold it!
