Holiday Parties

My company’s holiday party is tonight … and where am I?

At home, in bed, watching TV and typing this blog entry. And for once, it’s not because I’m feeling anxious about showing up … I pretty much just flat-out do not want to go.

Tomorrow is the day that we find out what our annual raises are, and I’m not feeling very optimistic, since I’m already pretty much at the top of the payscale for someone in my position.

So, I’m not feeling very celebratory, and that’s okay. Who knows, maybe tomorrow I’ll feel differently … I could be pleasantly surprised, but for once I think my pessimism is justified.
