Christmas Cheer

This holiday season hasn’t seemed much like christmas. Everyone I know is tight on money and worried about keeping a roof over their heads. Buying a lot of Christmas presents just isn’t the smartest thing to do these days. But then again, families need to do something for their kids. So in my family we gave amnesty to all the adults and said that we would just focus on the kids under 19 years old. That seems fair – Christmas is for kids, anyways.

So us adults are celebrating in a different way. We are doing nice things for each other and making a point of being cheerful and happy over the holidays.

I hope you enjoy your own Christmas and that Santa finds his way to your house OK.

Knick Knacks and More!

Our house seems to have accumulated an overly large number of nick knacks. Many of these items are gifts that we have received over the years and others are ones we admittedly purchased for ourselves when the urge and need hit. No matter how they came, they are here in spades! Everywhere I look the shelves are full to the hilt with all manner of treasures. We have nearly everything one could think of.

The biggest problem we have with all of these things is the ability to dust them off. They seem to attract a great deal of dirt and grime and are in constant need of being cleaned. I’ll be glad when the time comes that we will be able to rid ourselves of some of these space taker uppers and free up our shelves!

We will have our selves one heck of a yard sale. Feelings will be hurt and relationships will be strained, but for goodness sake, it’s only stuff and you can’t take it all with you when you go. I still have stuff from when I was 12 and 13 that I can’t even image letting go of, but at some point it will, when the time is right.

 

 

The Outing

Our company recently sent many of us on an outing. It seems that a lot of our top employees were sent on a scouting trip to one of our offices in a whole different country. We looked into the situation and decided that bus rentals in New Jersey were the best option to get us to the airport. As we knew it would be a long trip, we decided to offer a first class method of travel. Instead of everyone trying to fend for themselves to find transportation to our destination, we thought it would be better to stay as a group.

Since our business relies on our employees, we knew that it was imperative to keep everyone fresh. There is no gain in sending a bunch of people out to a meeting if they are all dead tired. This way, we could all enjoy the best method of arriving at our meeting. We did some research and found a site called indonesia.travel/en. They were able to render the services we desired for the much anticipated trip to seminyak.

The best part of the whole deal was the reliability that we felt we had gained. It was important that we arrive on time and we thought this company could provide that. Of course, there were other benefits as well. The whole trip was amazing. The seats were comfortable. We arrived on time and were all relaxed and ready to enjoy our meeting. I guess we all owe a debt of gratitude to this fine company.

Coming Along Nicely

There was an email in my email inbox confirming that order for the Agogo Bells was indeed processed and ready to head out my way this morning. I am not the most patient person in the world so I do appreciate all that the Internet brings to us almost instantly. I can’t image ordering anything that I couldn’t check up and/or track online. We are the generation of instant gratification indeed!

I’ll feel a lot better once it is here and I know that it has arrived in time for the party next week! There are going to be a good amount of friends and family there that I haven’t seen since last Christmas. I sure hope everyone is on their best behavior and that no drama starts up between anyone, but that hasn’t always been the case these past couple of years. But that is a whole other can of worms that I don’t want to open up right now.

I won the office pool!

It’s finally happened! I won the office pool for the monster truck tickets for the show next week. That’s right, four tickets to the show. I plan to treat my family to the event, but it seems I’ll have to buy one more ticket so we all can go. Anyway, playing the office pool has finally paid off. I’ve been playing for years with no results, so it’s nice to finally have something to show for it!
