work and Santa

Work has been slow lately, filled with lots of "busy work" (hole punching papers, alphabetizing folders, stuffing envelopes, etc.). It's exactly this type of work that I hate - because it makes me lazy, my mind wanders and I don't focus. We've been gearing up for our busiest time of year, trying to get everything ready in advance so we dont have to worry about it during tax season. I'm glad I know what to expect this year with tax season, but worried because I'll have to work more hours this year - full time work and almost full time school. . .

I am such a big whimp!!

Anyway. The holiday season was lovely, the best part of course was the holiday parties. At the Jensen party I sat on Santa's lap - he groped and grilled me! J/K about the groping part, but it was a tad uncomfortable with his hand on my hip. But seriously, he asked what I wanted and I said "maybe a camera." Santa: "Well, what kind of camera?" Me:"I don't really know, just a camera." Santa: "What, a Nikon 1723987?" Me: "Sure, if that's a good kind??" Then he asked me what else I wanted - Uhh... Umm.... ?????? Whew, sitting on Santa's lap sure freezes your mind! I knew exactly how Ralphy felt in "A Christmas Story." I just wanted to tell Santa I wanted a football and run away!

Here's the evidence.
