This is the third office birthday this month and we only have 8 people in my office! Usually the birthday person is taken out to lunch and their lunch is paid for by the rest of us. One lady is the designated cake person who brings the cake, plates and plasticware. I really don't know if she gets reimbursed for that or not. I don't think she does. Anyway, today it was her birthday so I volunteered to buy the cake. The cake, card, morning donuts (because I wanted them) and lunch trip set me back $22. Not too bad.
I think that was the last birthday for the year. I don't buy Christmas gifts for the office so hopefully I won't have any more extra work expenses. The only other event is the Christmas party but that will only cost me in gas. It is always on the opposite side of town from me. Last year the food was really good. I ate so much I felt sick. This year, I must promise myself to take some home.
Anyway, after donuts, lunch out, and cake today, I am tired. I used to go for a walk when I got home but although the weather is much cooler, it is dark by the time I get home now. Too bad. I guess I will either do some calisthenics in my RV and try not to step on the cat or just go to bed early.
