An exhausting but happy day...  
Every year the bank I work for hosts a HUGE Christmas party for all of its employees. It's usually held at a fancy hotel and hundreds of our workers (throughout all the branches on the island) show up for free drinks, free food and lots of fun. I usually don't go to these parties because they're restricted to employees only (no family allowed) and they're usually really crowded. I wasn't going to go this year either... until niwrad2180 and one of my other co-workers insisted that I join them since they've never seen me at a bank function before.

Well, how could I say no to Darwin? ;) So I ended up going and actually had a really good time. :) The food was fantastic and it was nice to sit with everyone outside of the work environment and talk about things that weren't bank related. A really nice surprise tonight was also the announcement of our operation manager's officer appointment before the evening began (I think he was even more shocked and surprised than we all were!) :) It was just a wonderful night all around.

AND to make this day even more special, I got home to find a wonderful box sitting on my dining room table! :) It was a package from irisheyes77 and orion74! They gave me a toy for Sydney! :) It was SO sweet of them to think about her - I was truly touched when I received it. Thanks so much, Amanda & Tom! Sydney loves the toy and has been carrying it around the house with her all evening! :) Big *HUGS* to you both! :)

I started out the day extremely tired and exhausted from the lack of sleep the past few nights and I was determined to be grouchy today... but it's amazing what a few kind gestures from friends can do - it turned out to be such a wonderful day after all. :) Have a great evening everyone! :)

I'm glad the night ended up being wonderful. :) Amanda and Tom are such great friends. :) Sydney should feel very special. :) I hope you get some sleep tonight. Take care. *hugs*

Thanks Carrie! :) And they are such wonderful friends! :) Sydney was so happy that one of the packages that we opened actually had something in it for her! She was thrilled! :) And I didn't get as much sleep as I would've liked, but I'm hoping to catch up this weekend. :) Please take care of yourself too. *HUGS*

Awww, thanks! :)

I'm so glad that the package reached it (it's funny how we got each other's on the same day!) and that Sydney likes her new toy!

That shocked me too that we received it on the same day! What shocked me even more was after I opened it and I went to check LJ, I saw your post asking if we received it. :) What timing! :)

I'm glad the package finally made it! Read the last paragraph from this post I made on back on 11/16. I'm truly glad that you were touched by it, and I'm glad that Sydney is enjoys it so much! I still can't believe that we received each others packages on the same day! :)

That's so funny! I read that entry back then, but totally glossed over the "picked up a pet toy for a certain someone" part! :) Thanks so much again to you and Amanda! :) Sydney adores you both! :)

I deliberately put that in my entry like that. I knew that anyone who read it would probably just assume we got the pet toy for one of our assorted four-legged friends! LOL
