At Last


I got the best Christmas gift ever today. After four years of waiting and waiting and waiting, my labor certification has finally been approved. I wanted to cry and laugh at the same time, and I even told the paralegal that gave me the good news, "If you were here, I would kiss you right now!" I've told five people so far, and one person here at work kind of figured it out when she heard me blubbering on the phone. It seems like lately everything has just been working out for me. Life is good!

Holiday Spirit

The Christmas spirit has been a little slow in coming this year, but I'm finally caught up in it. I have Christmas songs playing in my car (thank God I finally have a car that has a working audio system - reason enough to be joyful), my cubicle at work is decorated with blinking Christmas lights, a reindeer stocking, all sorts of trinkets from co-workers, wrapping paper, Christmas cards, gold bells and garlands. I have a million different kinds of sweets on my desk (by the way, as I was writing this, I received a box of dark chocolates, my favorite kind of chocolate - yummy! God, I'm going to get fat this season, aren't I?).

So no matter how bare the apartment is (we only have one Christmas-y piece), there's a lot of things around here at work to remind me that it's the peppermint season. :) If I don't get to write again until after the holidays, Merry Christmas, everyone! :)
