We had our office Christmas party last night at this fancy restaurant called Vincenzo's. We had our own private room & Mr. Vincenzo himself came to pay us a visit. It was fun to be able to dress up and hang out downtown with my friends from work. Plus I had the best looking date!
The highlight of the party was definitely our office gift to our boss, Jeremy. As in any negotiating business, there is a lot of pressure to settle files for a profit. When Jeremy is pressured by his bosses, ost naturally he passes on the stress to the rest of us. He'll frequently make trips through the office repeating, "Settle! Settle! Settle!" So what better gift could we have purchased than Squakers McCaw? We programmed it with all of Jeremy's choice "encouraging" phrases, and it now resides in his office.
As I'm sure many of you know, I am losing my dear Beth Wilson. Her husband Lee was offered a terrific job at Union University, and the Lord led them to accept it. Obviously, this means a move to the thriving metropolis of Jackson, Tennessee. It's hard to say how things will be around the office without Beth. She has been such an encouragement & rock among the crazy drama that goes on in our office. Not only will she be missed in the office, but who is going to host Texas Monday Night Dinner? Yes, it's become such a staple in our week that it's practically a proper noun & deserves capital letters. I'll certainly miss those them but Jackson is only four hours away and is a perfect stop on a trip to Tejas. So happy trails to you, Wilsons!
We're heading off to Tejas this evening. Pray for our all-night drive! Hopefully, we'll get to catch up with some of you while we're there. If not, I'm sure I'll have lots of pictures & stories once we return.
