Work Christmas Party

This will be brief, because I am already kind of over last weekend. šŸ™‚ No living in the past for me! But I figured I should write it down so that I can come back and read about it.

The work party Saturday was surprisingly fun! We got dressed and ready, took the kids to K’s sister’s house (his mom was there too to help) and headed downtown. We stood in the square at the Pioneer Museum for about 20 minutes listening to them making speeches and then reading name after name after name. And we got cold. So we finally decided to go inside and wait until the rest of the people came in for the party. I sat us in a corner away from the door but kind of facing most of the room – knowing I wasn’t getting up again to do any ‘mingling’. Ended up that during appetizers, another 2 couples sat at our table that were super-fun to talk to! Especially one couple – this guy that works in mapping at my office and his wife. She is in nursing school, so that kept K and I making conversation with her for quite a while since K is considering doing that. We laughed a lot with them and had a good time through appetizers and dinner. Then the door prizes were given out. I won a wine bag, but since everyone knows we don’t drink, they switched it so I got one of the food baskets and the next person got the wine. It had some excellent chocolates in it that didn’t last long, and the crackers and stuff are still in the cupboard. They’ll get used eventually.

The white elephant exchange was probably the funniest part of the evening. The people at my office are very amusing and quite jovial, especially when drinking. K and I laughed a lot and had a great time. I think we were both pleasantly surprised by how much fun we had.

Anyway, I know that’s not a very exciting recount. But there you have it. Farah – here’s so you can remember when next year’s work party comes around.
