Happy Friday, all! Be sure to check out our hostess Viklit for the full list of celebrators!
My celebrations this week:
It's Official I got my official offer letter, signed about a billion different forms for HR, scheduled trainings and put in my letter of resignation at my current job. My co-workers are sad but happy for me and I think it worked out really nicely that I'll be able to celebrate the holidays with them, finish the year and then move on. I will always be grateful for my time here- it's the best group of co-workers I've ever had and I'm going to enjoy my remaining time with them as much as humanly possible.
It's Beginning to Look A Lot Like Christmas Monday night I put on The Muppet Christmas Carol (which is, in case you didn't know, the best version of The Christmas Carol that was ever made), pulled out boxes from the basement and decorated the house. My tree is brightening up the living room, I've got a wreath on my front door and the stockings are, in fact, hung by the chimney with care. I've also got Christmas lights and garland up on my office walls at work and I've been listening to Christmas music on Pandora while writing up all my notes. I think I needed to have everything settled with the job before really getting into the swing of things but I'm happy to be merry and festive now.
Snow! Here in PA we got hit by two consecutive snowstorms followed by highs in the 20s for several days so the snow is sticking around and making me very happy when all those snow-themed Christmas songs play on the radio. Last year we had no snow to speak of and for a person who loves snow that’s a sad state of affairs. Granted, by the time we get hit with the next major storm they’re predicting I may be getting irked by sore shoulders while clearing off my car and shoveling- but for now I’m happy to see the winter wonderland everywhere I look.
Thank god for Amazon Christmas shopping = done! I don’t know why anyone goes to the mall. Seriously.
