Happy 2011

I am sitting on my couch gazing at the fireplace. The house looks like elves came and trashed. Fun was had. The munchkin had fun and crashed about an hour ago. We 'counted down' and had 'champagne'.
The entertainment of the evening was a few Batman movies. Once the little crashed, we out on Eureka, am working my way through season 1.
We had hors d'vores for noms and cake to celebrate the end of the year.

Hoping that 2011 will be a good year all the way around.

Happy New Year to all my friends and family, love you all!

2011 goals

Every year I make a few resolutions (diet, debt) and each year they fall by the wayside.

I am telling the world that in 2011 I want to explore the corporate side of my company. I love the department I am in, but things have changed a lot this year; not just in my department. I think it is time to expand my horizons. There are fewer postings than there used to be, but I am going to look around.

I am going to start moving around more and eat healthier. Note, I am not saying the evil 4 letter word that starts with a D. One of the easier places to change is what I eat at work. Cafeteria eating is NOT the healthiest.

I want to put myself in a better spot finiancially in the upcoming year.

What kind of things do you want to accomplish next year?

Have a great New Year celebration, no matter what your plans.

Snow Globe effect

Did you know there is a phenomena when it snows? It is the snow globe effect. The snow blankets all sound and looks like a mad elf is shaking globe for all its worth. Right now the driveway and courtyard are a pristine blanket of white. You can just hear the howl of the wind through the windows.

It is so beautiful, I am the first to admit that I want to be curled up in the living room in front of the fire & either watching the snow or movies!

The weathermen have predicted 10-20 inches of snow state wide and have the potential to be in the top 10 storms in the state's history. I am very glad that Christmas & Christmas Eve were snow free as the 2 locations were not snow friendly to drive in.

Chatted with a friend who lives a few hours away who is also enjoying the relaxation of the snow (I hope). I hope it stays nice & quiet for her for the next few days.

Time to grab a snack- cheese ball from yesterday & homemade cookies may do the trick. Only made 1 kind this year - peanut butter blossoms.

Go. Enjoy the peaceful world that comes only when it snows. Maybe even say a little prayer that you get one more day for your holiday weekend. Eh, can't hurt, right?

Santa was here!

I have to admit, as we get older, the feeling of being amazed by Santa diminishes.

I had a wonderful surprise today, Santa came to the office!!!!!

I came into work same as always, logged on, went through my email and went to grab some breakfast.

I came back to my desk, and in front of me was a huge beautiful white poinsettia and a bag of gourmet chocolates with a card. I felt like a little kid on Christmas morning. I had the biggest smile on my face and felt a little giddy at the unexpected gift.

The gift was from a boss of mine that I am working on an internship with. I didn't even know that she was going to be in the office today.

Thank you again B, you made my day!
