Half Days

Took half days yesterday and today. Was just unfocused at work with all that was going on. Would've taken full days off, but I wanted to see a few people and had an all staff mtg (and another really boring mtg) this morning I had to at least show up for.

I'm organizing a holiday dessert hour / cookie swap (i know, i know!) for Monday and given the layoffs, I offered to take on coordinating our secret santa. (The previous organizers were both laid off as were some of the participants so we decided to re-draw and send the organizers a little gift as a thank you / we miss you to them).

I'm happy to have some holiday things to distract me though as I was worthless work-wise. Was just feeling really pissy in the mtgs I did have to go to.

And I decorated our Christmas tree finally last night. I'll post a pic later this weekend.

And I'm preparing packages of Christmas cookies this weekend to mail and for our dessert hour Monday. And the rest of our Christmas cards.

Let's just hope I don't eat too many of the cookies while I cook. The plan is to package the gifts to mail immediately to prevent that!

I've been on a tear food wise. When I stress that's what I do. Just waiting for my fill on Monday morning. Yes just before our dessert hour, so I'll be on fluids only that day and liquids and soft foods the rest of the week. Ironic the timing worked out that way! Can't decide if that's an oops or a yay!


  1. Sounds like you have a lot on your plate!! I don't know, if it were me, then I would have to say that the fill on Monday morning was a good thing so that I couldn't eat all the yummy cookies!!

    Can't wait to see the pictures of the Christmas Tree!

    Happy Holidays

  2. Looking forward to that Xmas tree pic - this blog community of ours is just amazing - getting to see little snatches of peoples life. I love it!!

  3. How unpleasant it is about loosing your co-workers in the lay offs.

    It is very French to serve radishes with salt and butter. My grandma taught me to just eat them with salt. They're yummy, especially if you get cool ones from the greenmarket! Thanks for your comments - it really does help!
