I’ve got the eclectic calendar almost finished, but if there are any last minute suggestions, just shoot them over to me! We still have a few more days left.
It’s the last week of the year, and I’m back at work. It’s quiet and we’re pretty relaxed. Yesterday I reminded the receptionist that, if they let us go early, to please let me know because I feel isolated back in my little office. So about a quarter till 5pm yesterday, I got a call from her saying that a few people are making the rounds, turning off lights and checking offices. One of my coworkers came in and he said he was from the “No Coworker Left Behind Program”. Hehe.
The small group of us left work and spent a good 5, 10 minutes brushing the snow off of our cars from the “lake effect” storm we had the night before and during that entire day. “Lake effect” sounds scary. When we hear that on the news, we roll our eyes and know that some of it is bound to hit us.
During the past month, I kept thinking I was getting a cold. I’d wake up and have the sniffles and sneezes. Then they’d wear off during the day and I’d be fine. But now I think I have an official cold. My head is all stuffy, one ear is blocked and my throat is scratchy. I’m thinking New Year’s Eve will consist of lazing around on my comfy couch while drinking either tea, hot chocolate or coffee (or all of the above) and watching some movies. Who says we have to venture outside in the cold, into a crowded, public place just to watch the new year come in? The new year will be here no matter where we are or what we’re doing.
