We had a power outage the morning this all went up--and while everyone else was standing in the only light in the office and freaking out, my HR buddy and I lit up our cell phones and headed off to the storeroom to find the tree.
Guess who's idea it was for the fireplace?? Go ahead and guess. If you click on the photo, you may be able to see the napping kitty on the rug. We're all about ambiance at the workplace, people.
Now the problem isn't getting UP the decorations (okay, it is)....it's finding the time to take them DOWN. So, in between spreadsheets, conference calls, and three six-inch binders of 401(k) enrollments to process, I'm grabbing some garland here, taking down the stockings there, and hoping that somehow the tree just sort of disappears before I get there the next day.
Of course this is all to the tune of "When is somebody gonna take all of this Christmas stuff down?" Ugh.
