Three More Sleeps....

.... so recently we're counting in sleeps how long before things will happen. Last Friday, I spent a fitful night of sleep in Griffin's bed, because I promised (does anyone else do this with their kids?). In the week leading up to it, Griffin pouted every night that I wasn't going to be in his bed that night. So I tried to console him with counting down the sleeps until it would be Friday. It worked. So now we do it for everything. This weekend is my work holiday party. And the kids are going to spend the night with Aaron's parents and niece. So of course, now we're counting down the sleeps until we can spend the night at Grandma's. The kids LOVE spending the night at Grandma's, and even pretend that their animals/Spiderman/dolls are "going to spend the night at Grandma's." It's way cute.

...So, three more sleeps until my work holiday party. Which I planned. Am very nervous about things that I cannot control. Like the fact that I know I've told the caterer that there should be no pork in any preparation of the meal. Yeah, I did that last year, and there still managed to be bacon bits in the salad. That, and I'm relying on others to help with things like ordering tables and decorating and such. This makes me nervous. I am going up on Friday to help out with the decorations and such, but it still makes me nervous. We shall see.

Anyone else going to any work parties this year?

Scott's company, for unknown reasons (though I suspect the person in charge of money s a tightass) is having a company pitch in for the Holiday. At 3:30 in the afternoon. Who the bloody hell needs a meal at 3:30?! I won't be bothering to show up.

Greg's work party is next Wednesday. Yes Wednesday like as in the middle of the freaking week. He thinks he needs to "show up" for a little while so I'm trying to get a babysitter for like 6 to 9pm. I think it lasts until 11pm but who's going to babysit that late on a school night?
