Happy Holidays!

I hope everyone is having a great holiday season! Christmas was great here. Santa was good to all of us. He even brought presents for Bridget. It was a gloomy, rainy day and we just stayed in and snuggled up. I've been away from my family before on Christmas. It's just not possible to always get together when we all live in different places. I've come to terms with that. However, it was the first Christmas when all my siblings were separated. All four of us were in a different places so that was a bit strange. Last Christmas, I could phone my mother and hear all my siblings in the background having a great time. I talked to all of them but it was still a little sad. I think we all missed eachother.
Tomorrow, I start a new job! It's at a resort and casino and I'm working in room service. It was a very long hiring process as I had to get a gaming license even though my position has nothing to do with gaming. It involved an extensive background check and lots of paperwork and the whole process took about a month but everything cleared and I start tomorrow. I'm a little jittery and nervous about it. I always am when I'm going into a new place. I think that's normal. I just hope I can sleep tonight!
I haven't been able to be on SL for any extended period of time lately but I did pop on a few times to pick up some of the great freebies my favorite designers were giving out. It was great!
I don't seem to have much to say tonight. My mind is too full with all the things I'm supposed to memorize from my new employee handbook. I keep running over the company motto and the mission statement.
I want to let my friend Joonie know that everything is fine with me since I know she worries about me when I'm not blogging or on SL as much as usual. I'm sorry I've been so distant. My New Year's resolution is to write in this blog at least once a week! It's good for me to write here and I love the blogger community.
I wish you all the best New Year! I hope it brings blessings to everyone.
