Planning for the New Year

Wow.  It's almost January.  I try not to plan (pun intended) too far in advance which calendars I'm going to use for the new year.  Call me superstitious, but I don't like to get ahead of myself.

And, yes, I'm a person who still uses a paper calendar.  Of course, I have Outlook on my computer and calendars on my smartphone, but nothing beats paper for my purposes.  I like to see the written word on paper to process it and take mental note so that I'm constantly aware of what is coming up.

This brings me to my latest dilemma.  With some many different options (although there are fewer companies making paper planners each coming digital year), I can never decide which color, style, make or model to buy.

So that's my project this weekend.  Finding a planner that I want to use and look at for the year.

Stay tuned.  I'll let you know what I come up with.

Can't Go Wrong With Chocolate - Holiday Gifts for the Office

Chocolates are always appropriate for your office mates and bosses.  Unless, of course, you know that they're allergic to chocolate and then maybe not.

And, what says "simply stated elegance," better than Godiva?

"Mr. Sick Stuff, Who Do You Think You Are?"

They say sharing is caring.  Except when it's a cold or flu.

Honestly, the boss might not mind because she can close her door.  But, the rest of us in the office pool, mind very much if you cough, snort, sniffle, blow your nose and generally wreak havoc and germs throughout our common areas.

You put your germs all over the copiers and surfaces and then before you know it, the entire office is falling like dominoes.

We all want to enjoy the holiday season and get through the winter months, relatively healthy.

So, if you wake up with a scratchy throat, coughing, sneezing and generally feeling bad - take two personal days and call us when you're better!

A healthy worker is a happy worker.
