A different season

With Christmas two weeks away, today I want to say that I am so grateful that I do not have to spend this holiday season dealing with the complete retardation that was my former job.

It has made all the difference. I feel like I am enjoying Christmas for the first time in years.

Every day that I am following my dream instead of slaving away in that cubicle hell-hole, I thank my lucky stars for this opportunity. I don't know how I got this lucky. Sometimes I feel guilty because of it.

For a glimpse into my normal state of mind during the Christmas season, visit this link. Warning: the post is peppered with the F-word.

Things that are different this year, compared to last year: We got our tree last weekend. My adorable husband hung lights outside, for the first time. It's so beautiful. I've been listening to Frank Sinatra sing Christmas songs. I sent our Christmas cards out. I'm almost done with Christmas shopping, except for a couple of holdouts who haven't told me what they want *COUGH* SUSAN & CODY *COUGH*. And, I'm about to get all Betty Crocker up in this bitch with some cookies.

It's all because I quit my job. I still spend at least eight hours a day sitting at a computer, but I find that when I don't have to do something I detest, I retain the energy that would normally get sucked away by corporate vampires.

It's fantastic. I hope you don't hate me for it.

 I sort of love our tree this year. Although I hate our tree topper so I cropped most of it out. There are three cans of SSSCAT pointed at the tree to make sure the cats don't destroy it. :-)


  1. It makes me feel happy that you are happy. Your tree is festive and wonderful!

  2. Awesome!!! You are on it! I'm an so not! I'm not working. What's my excuse?!

  3. Hooray for leaving energy-sucking corporate vampires in the dust! Balance and happiness in life is so much better than the alternative. Feels like a Christmas Mircale!

  4. We would never, ever hate you for being happy!

    xo, Christina
