Not from me
My life is crazy. There's way too much going on.
In the past week, I've actually had 4 different coworkers ask me if I was okay and tell me that I "just seem scattered" all the time, and then offer the sage advice that I need to drop something from my life. Three of them even had the audacity to suggest what I needed to drop so that I could become less scattered. (Keep in mind that dropping what they suggested would only serve their need for me to do more for them, not really help with my own level of sanity)
So...I did drop two things. Sending Christmas cards and making gifts for the members in my department.
I don't really feel any better or like I really have all that much more time, but I am happy that I didn't drop any of the things that were suggested to be dropped. I'm also really happy that I won't be all pissed-off on Friday when I sneak what I think is a great and thoughtful little craft into department members mailboxes and then have no one tell me thank you for my thoughtful gesture. Yeah...I'm not setting myself up for that particular disappointment this year. Besides, why do I think they want the crap I put together anyway? And yes, Chemguy, when four more people leave the department this spring, you can tell me it was because I didn't give out stupid $5-$10 crafts that I made for Christmas this year.
But Happy Christmas everyone - this is as close as you'll get to a card from me. I do hope that this year brings us more peace than what we've seen in the last while.
