C IS FOR CASH, COOKIES, CHOIR & CHRISTMAS
After 6 weeks on the job, I just had a salary discussion with my boss and will be getting an additional small monthly raise, plus a mobile phone. My boss is very pleased with what I've accomplished so far, and I left the meeting with a good feeling. :)

I can feel the acceleration at work. It feels fast. And it feels good.

We had a super turnout last night at the AWC monthly meeting, due in large part to the annual Christmas cookie exchange. We had 16 participants, and each of us baked 6 cookies for EACH of the people who participated...a total of 90 cookies. Although, in my case, it was Simone who did the baking, for which I thank her immensely. I did at least package them and make tags and tie ribbons. :) And now I have 90 Christmas cookies, 6 each of all different kinds to use throughout the holiday season! *insert cookie monster noises here*

Tonight is choir practice, I hope the director is there, since without her it feels very disorganized and she's been busy the last 3 weeks with other commitments. We have 3 concerts coming up on Sunday, and then 5 more right in a row in the next 2 weeks.

We are putting up a little Christmas tree in the office today, everything smells like fresh pine. Yummmmmmm! Must remember to bring some ornaments from home as it's potluck-decorating around here.

I'm so happy that your new job is working out so well for you -- AND that they're appreciating all of your great work! Go you! :)

The Christmas cookie exchange sounds like a fun idea ... I may have to try to set up something like that one of these days.

Thank you :) It's a lot of fun, that cookie exchange, but a lot of work too when you get so many participants! But you can freeze the cookies and they'll last ALL MONTH! (unless you have a houseful of cookie monsters, like me, in which case they'll last ALL WEEK!) hahahaha!

if you need help inhaling the cookies, I can tell you that I am SPECTACULAR in that department. Truly. And unlike the Cookie Monster, I won't litter the place with crumbs. Nope. Not me. Too wasteful that. I mean, have you seen the size of some of those crumbs he leaves behind? They could crush cars, single story buildings and fleeing Japanese citizens like in those old Godzilla flicks.

I'm so pleased that everything is going well at work. Good on you, Liz, spreading the sunshine every where you go, making the hay !!!

adoringly, wee xoxoxo

I definitely need help inhaling the cookies but thankfully I have a house full of cookie monsters. That said, it would be SO COOL if you came and ate cookies with me or at least hoovered up the crumbs. :D

O... and about Patience Brewster's Hair! I KNOW!!!!! Talk about monster movie proportions! I fear for her, I truly do. One of these days, that mop is going to completely engulf her and swallow her whole! I mean, I'm all for a signature look, but come on now!!!

xo still Wee

Yay, for little raises and acceleration at work!!! We still are waiting for my husband to get his pay raise. It would be nice if people got payed what they're worth. :D

And now I have 90 Christmas cookies, 6 each of all different kinds to use throughout the holiday season!

What a great idea!!! I will try to do that next year. :-P

And Natural Highs by gnostraeh are great! I love them all too!

gratis for you raise! that is great. very nice to hear that your job is moving quickly in a direction you like!

that is a lot of concerts! what kind of choir do you sing in?

cookies! yumm! maybe i do have to get in to this awc thing! is it okay if i email you some questions and whatnot?

Of course it's okay. :) If you'd rather I can call you, or you can call me: 046-64333. I'm home a bit late tomorrow because the kids have Xmas parties all evening, but I'm home Friday night and Saturday afternoon. :)

The choir is a women's group, it was originally the Malmo hospital choir, but is now open to anyone. It's a lot of fun. We sing a very mixed repetoire, and lots of languages as well, which is cool. I love it!

great. i will give you a call. would love to hear your choir sometime as well...

We're having a free Christmas concert on Wednesday, December 15th, at Malmo Hospital, entrance 44, I think it's at 7 p.m. but I need to doublecheck the time.

Congratulations on the salary increase and the good six week report. Woot!

Thank you! :D

Congrats on the pay rise!!! Fantastic to hear things are going well....

I'm so happy for you and your new job. It's nice to see that they appreciate you and you get some extra dough to boot!

Congrats about the job & getting more on the paycheck :)
