12 hour day

November 6, 2013

While I am incredibly lucky to work in a job where the balance between work and life is valued and I am only expected to put my 40 hours in every week (and paid overtime when I overshoot)*, today was a 12 hour day.

But on the plus side I did get to watch the Governor of the great state of Washington face off against a popular radio newscaster in 1 on 1 basketball. Oh and people at the event totally surprised us and donated enough food to fill over 20 food drive boxes (60-70 pounds each) and donated several hundred dollars. Not bad for a last minute event, which we had no idea what to expect. In the end people are pretty great.

*Which is actually pretty rare in the nonprofit world
