Holiday Plans

This year I’ll be spending Christmas in Berlin, NH.

My daughter and her two children want to spend the day at home.

My daughter works for the Salvation Army in Berlin. She is busy delivering Christmas presents to the needy this season. By Christmas she usually is tired.

Me too. The holiday season can be grueling. Today I traveled along the Forbes Holiday House Tour, enjoying the season and thinking about how amazing the mansions look in their Christmas wrappings.

This week I have two important holiday parties. Our staff party is Friday at the home of Judy McDonough. We close the office from 1 to 2 p.m. every Friday for our weekly staff meeting. This week, we will be closed until 2:30 (or so).  I’m still trying to figure out what I can bring for the gift swap.

The other party happens Tuesday with the women of the Board Forum. We haven’t been meeting regularly this year. But last month we had dinner and there is a possibility we may be dinnering more often.
