i'm never one to turn down a free lunch.
yesterday was our work xmas party at some fancyshmancy downtown italian restaurant. free drinks and free dinner. needless to say, i took full advantage. the meal was fancy and i chose the chicken entree which turned out to be half a chicken but i was amazed that there were only 2 bones in the entire dish...and the chicken cut like butter. how fancy!! several martinis and amaretto sours and red wines later, i managed to say goodbye to my much-more wasted co-workers and get back home to my safe, warm apartment. today at 8:50 am, i was the first one to arrive at work. the second person arrived 5 minutes later and so on and so on. someone bought me a pumpkin spice latte from starbucks and then we had a group office lunch that was paid for by the company. i love free food!!
this week is going to be crazy. we've got to get our house all clean and tidy as kyla and sergio will be coming from portland on friday to stay with us for the weekend. hooray!! tonight i sent c out to the laundry mat to drop off the laundry....normally, he goes to the sketchiest laundry on hastings cuz it's cheap. but we've got lots going on, so he dropped off the laundry at a slightly better laundry mat (ie. there is an attendant present and all of the dryers work) on hastings and *surprise* it will only cost one dollar per load for them to transfer our laundry into the dryer! hooray for cheapness! tommorrow morning, he'll drop off another 3 loads! we are also hoping to borrow c's parents car tommorrow night so that we can go to ikea and get a christmas tree! i also want to buy new bed linens...actually, it's more of a need than a want. ooh, i can't wait! tonight, i've got to make my xmas cards....it's shocking that i still haven't done them yet. but once that is done, i will definitely start feeling better about things.
it's going to be a busy week!
