This holiday season has been anything but, calm for me. Iâ€™ve been working, attending holiday parties, trying to decorate and holiday shop. I must confess that my decorating hasnâ€™t even begun; I am planning on doing it this evening.*turns head in shame* There will be gifts for the little ones thatâ€™s a plus! Donâ€™t worry; itâ€™ll all be done before Saturday! If you didnâ€™t know, Iâ€™m a tad bit of a procrastinator. Well maybe a bit more than a tad! One of my favorite quotes isâ€¦ â€œIâ€™m going to stop procrastinating once I get around to itâ€ ~Anonymous
Iâ€™ve been attending holiday parties since last week and will be attending different holiday events up until the eve of the New Year! Iâ€™ve actually had a really good time at these events. Last week Thursday was my annual staff holiday party where I got tipsy off of balls of bourbon and poinsettia. If you follow me on Twitter then you lived that event with me. I attended a friendâ€™s cookie exchange on Friday night where I had a chance to meet a published author and anthropologist. We talked, played games, ate cookies, washed it down with eggnog and apple martinis and had a GREAT time. Great networking!
Saturday night I was invited to friends Christmas Party and had a blast! From the exquisite food to the alcoholic pomegranate punch and the people! I love when I can have fun with a group of people outside of our professional atmospheres AND it always fun when you find out someoneâ€™s profession especially when you never would have thought that it would be what they are. Did that make sense? I walked into the party and automatically someone walk up to me and introduced him self and takes credit for the wonderful spread! NOW, I know he didnâ€™t do a thing, but he was outgoing, funny, and after a few drinks quite hysterical. Somehow we started talking about professions and I stated that I was the Marketing Coordinator for the cityâ€™s alternative weekly newspaper and that I had a Graphic Design, Marketing business and Blogged also. Well it came out that heâ€™s a Principal, and my mouth dropped! I was wrong, I shouldnâ€™t have judged this man
period while he was off the clock but, I would have never thought that he was a Principal, Middle â€“ High School Principal at that! The room was filled with Professors, Project Directors, and Graphic Designers etc. I had an awesome time networking, connecting and having fun in a laid back atmosphere. Good Times!
Iâ€™m trying to get all the kidâ€™s doctorâ€™s appointments in before they go back to school in January. Track starts as soon as they go back and my son is actively wresting. I made an appointment yesterday for my daughter to get a physical and sports clearance, (she runs track) and the exam went well, it wasnâ€™t until she needed to get three immunizations that there was a problem. Sheâ€™s about to be fifteen years old! She cried like her two year old brother. I actually laughed because I didnâ€™t expect it and she was on the phone texting the entire visit. I take her brother today for his appointment and heâ€™s fine about the shots. He actually smiled through it but decides to freak out about the flu nasal spray because he doesnâ€™t want anything up his nose! I mean goodness! I couldnâ€™t help but laugh at him too! The two younger ones will get their check ups after the New Year. All in all things are getting done, slowly but surely. Iâ€™ll be posting a giveaway, event information and my New Yearâ€™s Resolutions before the New Year so stay tunedâ€¦ Hope youâ€™re holiday is a little less chaotic than mine. Tis the seasonâ€¦
