I've had enough depressing posts to last me a while...  
...so I decided to post about something much happier. :) On Friday I felt MUCH better so I dragged my sorry butt to work and actually made it to my work's holiday party! :) (People at work were telling me to go home, but I had that Mom-ism stuck in my brain - "If you're too sick to go to school, you're too sick to go out and play.") ;) So even though my voice was still shot, I made sure I went to work... ;)

The holiday party was SO much fun! Up until I moved to the back office, I always hated our company parties. I never felt like I fit in with any of the Reps - they were a little boisterous and rowdy and I'd ALWAYS wind up sitting on a table in the back with several others who didn't quite fit in as well and we'd quietly talk and watch the others get drunk and noisey... Well, not anymore...

Since joining the back office staff, I've finally found a group of people where I really fit in! Last year was the first year that we all sat together and WE were the loudest table at the party and for once, people were looking over at us to find out what we were talking about. This year was no different - we had a blast! Although I didn't drink, everyone on our table enjoyed the warm sake that my BIG boss bought and passed around and they were all getting a little silly. And once again, we were the last table to leave and the most rowdy of the party. :) It was SO much fun!

After the party, the back office was given rooms at the hotel (courtesy of the department - yay for the BIG boss!) so Mark & I spent the evening in a luxurious room at the Hawaii Prince. :) We enjoyed the comfy down pillows and the air-conditioning!! I enjoyed the nice HUGE bathtub, and soaked for about an hour this morning (with bath salts that the hotel provided) while Mark was sleeping off his sake. :) It was VERY nice. Then, after we checked out, we went downstairs to eat at the breakfast buffet in the hotel and had THE best banana bread and miso soup ever. :)

We had such a nice time! It was nice to get away for a bit and just relax and get my mind off some things.

On a completely different note, as a reminder - I'm going to be emailing the Happy Birthday Thread to Kevin tomorrow. If you haven't yet, but would like to, please stop by and leave him a short message. I'm sure he'll really appreciate it (and so will I!) :)

Hope you all have a nice evening! :)

"If you're too sick to go to school, you're too sick to go out and play."

Yes, I know that too. So I also had went to work. :)

I'm happy that you had such a great time with wonderful persons, Sheri. And a huge bathtub really is nice, isn't it? I only had it once in a hotel and since then I wished I had one at home. :)

Hope you have a nice day.

Big *hugs* to you. And please give Sydney also a hug for me - but only if she is in the mood to get a hug. :)

I think that I could almost hear my Mom saying that on Friday morning to me as I debated about dragging myself to work. ;) Luckily I felt SO much better (though I still have no voice...)

I loved the bathtub at the hotel! I really loved everything about the hotel! I'm really not used to staying at such nice places, so this was really nice!

Thank you for the hugs - Sydney really enjoyed them! (And so did I!) :) Please give some to Micki and Garry for me, too! Big *HUGS* to you!

I'm so glad you had some fun. I bet it was a blast. :) Wow what a nice room to go to at the end of the night. A long bath sounds good right now.

HUGS!

Awww, thanks Karen - it was just so great to spend an evening with my co-workers outside of work. :) They really are a great group of people and I'm so lucky to work with them. :)
