We’re going to the awkward turtle christmas party this coming Friday. Oh wait, “end of the year party” since we have to be all politically correct. Last year I showed up in a simple black dress and got gawked at awkwardly. Apparently ti’s a dress shirt+dress pants kind of event. Friday will be the first time everyoen actually meets my husband. It will be weird.

“Awkward Turtle”?  I feel like I need to know more 🙂

Ugh, our company Christmas party is so lame.  They hold it every year at this restaurant that serves nothing but mushy, underseasoned food.  Everyone gets really drunk, and last year I got comments ranging from, “All the men are staring at your cleavage in that dress” to “You’re hot.  I mean, you look hot.  I mean…”  Plus, the general manager’s wife took my husband out for a spin on the dance floor and called him a “cutie”.   Awkward!

A lot of people only go every other year or every few years, so we thought we’d be able to skip out pretty often.  Unfortunately, my husband was pulled aside this week by his manager and told that he needs to be more involved in office extracurriculars if he wants to move up to management anytime soon.  🙁  We were able to get out of this year because I’m pregnant and I still puke after every meal, but I think we’ll be expected to go next year.  Sigh.

I sometimes dread the holidays jsut because I need to figure out and coordinate how we spend it and with who so that no one gets hurt and no one gets offended.
