Lunchlady 2
March 05
I am now a widow, having laid my last kiss on my husbands brow after he died to say goodbye. Since then I have found an old note he wrote me apologizing for his meanness laying on my floor and two gold coins under my blankets, his way of saying he was sorry and goodbye. I have buried my ex husband, my baby son, my grown son, my mom and now my husband and I wish to bury no more, but life does not work that way. I have birthed 3 children and have 3 more wonderful children from my last marriage. I have 4 living children and a granddaughter I adore and I am in the process of finding me. I have no idea who I am but I have discovered I am loved and I never knew that before and it makes me smile...

Another Check off my Stress List

Rate: 28 Flag

This week is my CRE review you ask what is that?

It is where the state comes out and reviews my menu's, my production sheets which are my everyday how much do I need to cook, what and when was it's temperature, and how much was leftover paperwork. They will also review my spending, how I use, track and keep safe my commodities.

She will watch a breakfast and lunch service to make sure we are serving and counting each child's meal as a real reimbursable meal, which as a school who offers 4 items for breakfast and needs the student to pick 3 and 5 for lunch needing them to choose 4, we could get docked for not complying with these rules. Since I offer so many more choices than required I don't have to many fears but there is always in the back of one's mind what have I forgotten.

Being self taught yet sponge like I hope I have taught myself well and since I also belong to a group of school food service professionals I hope again that I have learned everything right that they have shared with me through the years.

She will also be looking at parts I don't control but have been guiding others in pointing out what she will be looking at and they have done incredible work in getting everything ready for her 3 day visit.

I will be back by the weekend I hope with a smile on my face and a song in my heart and one more mark off of my things that cause me stress list.

If you have any pull with the MAN above or Mother Earth, or just can send a little hell yes you can do it my way it would be very much appreciated.

If they give you a hard time, just tell them you'll bad-mouth them in your internationally read blog. That should make them think twice.
I know how compliance reviews can be (a tad ridiculous sometimes). Even when you are sure you are doing things according to the rules it is nerve wracking. I'll be sending positive vibes your way.
You deserve a bit A plus!!!
i know the professional you are. You will do wonderful.r
Thanks all, I try to not worry and I have been talking to the lady coming out and she seems very nice but back there hiding in my mind is will it be enough, have you done everything you are supposed to. I just hope I do not somehow cause the school to lose any money. I need to keep in mind I have done all that I could in the time given me to do it that I could... Internationally read blog....yea that will scare her :)
No pull that I am aware of, but you have my hopes and crossed fingers!
I have a sense you will do just fine!
Yeah, hell yes! Tell 'em Cranky and I will track them down and taz the daylights out of them. Zzzzzzzzappp.
The Accrediting Board is coming to our school a week from Monday - I feel your pain! You can do it - yes, you can and will! Just as an aside, it has been my experience that sometimes those doing reviews feel they MUST find fault with something, even if it is minuscule, to make it look as though they were through and in recognition of the fact that no one is perfect. If nits are picked, bear that in mind. Good luck!
Hell can do it!!!!!
You'll do great! I just know it! xox
I am sure you will do fine. If it makes you feel better, just give them hell any way!
You all make me smile and I need that so badly in my life right now. Thank you :) Don't worry as long as I don't cost the school any money I can take all the criticism they may want to dish out. I can only learn more and get better!
Pullin' for you, LL2!!!
You're gonna ROCK!!!
I'm sure you'll do great.
i am sure you will handle it with all professionalism you already have. but, good luck, too!
I am sending a message right now. Best of luck to you.
Yea!! What Cranky said! Add, "This cat I know, will piddle on your roses and swipe at your ankles with his claws!!!" YEA!! YEA!! :D

You'll do fine!!

Tell them, "The meat loaf is ground up children who failed testings...." that'll get ya something!! :D ~huge hug~
Hell, yes--you can DO it!!
You've got the OS army behind you, LL2, and we're all putting our faith in you. Now just to wait for your return with the good news.
By the time I am reading this, it is over. I look forward to a wonderful report!
