Today is my office annual holiday party!
Every year I take my staff out to lunch, we see a fun movie, and I give presents.
OK, it sounds more impressive than it really is. I have a staff of one, LOL!
My assistant, Miss Melanie, has been with me for years and makes me look good. She puts my name on all my Tupperware stuff, handles my mailings, helps me get things ready for sales, returns calls and confirms appointments, she even wraps my Christmas presents!
I truly wish EVERY woman had an assistant — it’s AMAZING how much more you can accomplish when you have 2 more hands around once in a while!
I remember the year we saw Enchanted at the theater. There were a handful of moms there with a bunch of kidddos. If you don’t recall the movie, it starts out animated and flips to “live” when the princess is cast out to present day New York City. The best part? I had the eye candy Doctor from Grey’s Anatomy in it, LOL!
The movie was soooo well done and we found ourselves laughing hysterically, even more so when we realized we were the only two in the theater laughing!
We all have people in our lives that act as “support staff” in one way or another:
It could be the Karate teacher who helps teach your child to NOT run away from you in stores…it could be the school teacher who catches the fact that your child may need glasses and all of a sudden, the grades go up. It could be the lady who answers the phone at the Doctor’s office and makes sure you get in quickly for that migraine shot…or the friend who picks your children up at school for you when you are sick or someone who stepped in to watch the kiddos so you could take a much needed sanity break (it happens to us all once in a while).
I’m not saying you have to take them all out to lunch — but this is the time of year to remember them and let the know what they mean to you. It can be kinds words in a holiday card, a plate of cookies, or a batch of the fun candy recipes I have been sharing with you this month.
Who has helped make YOUR life easier this year?
