Then again so are a lot of people at this time of year.
I made the mistake of taking a position on the condominium board where I live. I have three condo related events after work this week. I dislike meetings so I try to get items addressed and taken care of in a timely manner. One of the events was a meet and greet with our new property management firm. I believe in creating and maintaining a good relationship with organizations and companies. I attend long enough to be polite.
I got my one Christmas gift done. The family are all adults and we stopped buying gifts for each other. I just get a gift for my special needs nephew. He is hard to buy for so he gets cash. I prefer not giving cash because I like to put thought into actually buying a gift. He is incredibly hard to buy for and he likes video games, of which I know nothing about, so he gets cash.
Christmas will be spent with the family. We are a small group and I volunteered to provide wine for Christmas Day. I bought enough that there should be a bottle or two left over. If they need anything else I have no problem contributing.
My office is moving and they want to see if they can do this before the end of the year. It is a small office with four employees. We are one of two small branch offices. There is not a lot of time left before the end of the year so this might be interesting. This time of year always seems to be a bit rushed.
