the stockings are actually not hung by the chimney with care
the shopping is all done (aside from maybe an eyeliner or two i should buy the girlchild), cookies and festive breads have been baked, all our plans for the next few days have been made and confirmed, and now it's just all about trying to show up on time and vacuuming the living room. i got a four day weekend, which is exciting, and i spent yesterday napping and goofing off, which felt amazing. for whatever reason i got a lot of medicare calls this week, and medicare is kind of confusing to everybody. it's a subject that definitely taxes my brain.
work is going well, though. i feel like i'm getting to a point now where i'm not so overwhelmed that i come home and go to bed early. i feel more confident about what i'm doing, and have gotten some positive feedback from my bosses. i had a QC call last week (where they listen to a recording of a call a few times and take notes to give you) that went very well, and the monitor actually told me that she liked how comfortable i sounded on the phone. "you sound like you've been doing this for a lot longer than you have been." i always want to reply like jon lovitz on snl, "acting!" honestly, i figure it can't hurt to at least sound like i know what i'm doing, and no one needs to know how new i am. i feel good at this job; it feels like a place where you're always learning new things, like there are all sorts of opportunities, and like they honestly give a shit about their employees. it's so refreshing.
i feel like things are going well, both at work and at home. i love my little house, my little family, and am looking forward to the next few days. i hope you all have a great holiday, whatever you celebrate, and if i don't get back to you before january, happy new year!
