Merry Christmas

I'm out of the cube for a few days, and off at the farm. Completely relaxing, peaceful, quiet and wonderful for the few days I'm here (nothing longer, please). I love it for short periods, anything longer is just too much.

So happy holidays from the frozen flatland. Hope you all had a happy, healthy holiday with your family and friends, and wishing you a fantastic 2010!

Happy Holidays

Another Christmas is upon us. I'm irritating my new husband with Christmas music and far too much time spent trying to pick out just the right gift for each of my brother's kids. I figure we're even since his sisters kids spent hours irritating the...heck...out of me.

I set up and decorated both trees a couple of weeks ago and it looks pretty good around here right now. We've plans for a small New Year's Eve get together. Sadly, the way the weather's looking, people who have to travel further have opted to do something closer to home. It's the way things go, yet still irritating.

I reflect on the past year - my cube no longer has a blocked view (woo hoo, south view yet again). It's larger and feels more private, even if I know it isn't really. My new team is pretty decent to work with and pretty friendly. I've made new friends and struggled to maintain some old. Life moves on and I wonder at opportunities lost, yet feel happy with where I am.

All in all, it's been a pretty good year. I wish everyone the best, happiness, joy and prosperity in the new year. Enjoy the holiday spirit, the love, the lights and the snow. It comes but once a year. Don't waste this time with friends and family.

Peace and Love,
