If you've been around here for any length of time you know that I LOVE Christmas... It is absolutely the best time of the year!!! I mean - hell - I have already put my lights up outside and turned them on..... I have almost finished my Christmas shopping and am chomping at the bit to get the decorations up inside...........
So why you ask have I put that picture on my blog???
Do you remember all the problems I had with my staff in September/October???
Well on Thursday one of my dear loving/caring staff members turned to me and out of the blue asked me when I was gonna organize the Christmas dinner party..... I was gob smacked.... why I ask you.. WHY in god's name would I want to plan any party with these women who have done everything in their power to bring me down????
Unfortunately I don't think very fast on my feet......... 'cause if I had I would have answered her question by saying "I am not planning any Christmas dinner party - you can do it." But I didn't. I mumbled some stupid answer and then proceeded to stress about having to find a restaurant.. count heads.. make reservations .. etc etc etc.
Then I had a brain wave..... a brilliant inspirational idea.
Yesterday at the daily noon meeting.. I announced that I would not be planning ANY Christmas dinner party. ........ that I had more than enough items on my "to do list" and so if they wanted a Christmas party they had better put their heads together and organize it!!!
HA ! the looks on all their faces was worth it...... totally worth it. BAH HUMBUG.
Now that is taken care of... I can get on with MY Christmas decorating, wrapping, baking and celebrating.
