I have this thing about company holiday party's. That thing is that I love them. It's a fabulous night out that doesn't cost me anything so what's not to love? At my job we just got a holiday luncheon during the work day. Mj's isn't until January this year but my friend B invited me to hers. I met her at Hotel La Jolla right after work on Friday, got myself all dolled up and then it was time to party. This company went all out. Cocktail hour with appetizers at a swanky hotel to start. Filet Mignon for dinner. Dessert bar and a DJ next door. Oh, and just in case you overdo it on the all night open bar they throw in a hotel room for the night. I've spent 6 months and then 5 months apart from Mj back to back so it felt kind of silly that I was going to miss him even thought it was just one night. I felt sad for some reason that he was going to be home without me but not sad enough to stop me from going. We each do our own thing and we don't have to be together all the time; nor should we.
The cool thing about going to someone else's holiday party is that you can act a fool and you don't have to see those people on Monday morning at work. When you are the friend your husband doesn't have to see those people at work either. You can dance like nobody is watching even though the room is full. You can drink too much and laugh way too loud. Not that I did any of that of course, but I will say that open bars tend to have quite an effect on me. We both had a really fun time. Maybe too much fun. The next morning we stayed in the room right until the very last minute for check out recovering and then I felt sluggish for the rest of the day. I definitely don't bounce back like I used to so it's a good thing I don't do this all the time. Every now and then it's fun to really let loose like that though so it was worth it.
