At my job we don't do the whole holiday party thing but they still make us feel appreciated. Last Thursday there was a holiday reception for the whole district with some really good food. Our holiday gift this year was an awesome canvas black fold up outdoor chair. The kind that folds up into a little bag and has a cup holder in it. Our boss gave each of us a gift too. Today was our department holiday luncheon at the Prado in Balboa Park. We had a little banquet room all to ourselves and the food was really good.
I'm picking up my younger sister who is coming in from San Francisco tonight. Tomorrow we will spend the day and night up at my older sister's house. I'm so looking forward to spending time with them. We are going to do fun stuff that sisters do like shop, eat, talk, hang out and watch teen vampire movies. Yep, we're finally going to go see Breaking Dawn. Tomorrow also marks the official start of my holiday vacation. I don't go back to work until Jan 3rd. For the next 13 days I will be a Lady of Leisure. My job totally shuts down for the holidays and we don't even have to use vacation time. My time will be all my own to do with whatever I please. I've felt so tired and ragged like I always do towards the end of a long year so I really, really REALLY need this right about now. I am free!! And it feels great.
