I think the first thing on my Santa's wish list this year is a few extra days between now and the 25th. Do you think Santa can deliver that ?? Not likely I suppose. My tree has been up since Saturday and still has not been decorated. I plan (hope) to start that tomorrow in between baking cookies.
It is definately time to put myself into 2nd gear and push forward. I have tomorrow off and have a list of to - do's
The rest of the weekend is jammed packed with 3 parties. Our staff party is tomorrow evening - a local dinner theatre production with a hip of beef buffet. Then two back to back events Saturday. I am looking forward to a little fun.
It has been a week that has dampened our Christmas spirit at work. Earlier this week we lost a long time employee suddenly. Such a tragedy at any time yet it seems so much worse this time of year. The funeral service is tomorrow afternoon. Not exactly a good lead in to a holiday party. The mood will certainly be more subdued than in the past.
So that is what is happening around here. Wish me luck with my cookies tomorrow.
P.S. Santa, it would be great if you sent an elf to decorate my tree while I sleep tonight. Just thought I'd throw that out there. Isn't there a saying that "ask and you shall receive"? Just testing, in case Michael was wrong and you ARE real . . . . . . .
