There's a shrub in my living room

and it has 480 lights on it.  I need to tweak them to get them evened out, but it's a good start.  We should have gotten the tree up yesterday, but Charlotte let us sleep in so we took advantage of it and the day got away from us.  Tomorrow the ornaments will go on, and we have to make a decision about a tree top - crystal vs. electric.  I think we put the lit star up last year, but we don't need to decide immediately.  This year is already a departure, as we picked a balsam instead of a frasier fir.  It's been a long time since I've had a balsam.  I like the frasiers, but they're fluffier and therefore harder to hang ornaments on.

Tomorrow I'll also start picking up the ingredients for this year's boar's head.  I think this year I'll try to photo-document the process and not just the finished product.

Very apprehensive about going back to work on Monday.  I've got this irrational fear that either I won't be up to doing the job any more or that they won't be happy with my work any more.  Stupid of me, I know.  But it kind of feels like starting a new job, and I've always hated that.  Hopefully by the end of the week I'll be settled back in and be back to terrorizing the other assistants.

I also need to track down a sitter for a few hours sometime in the next few weeks.  I want to see the new Bond movie.  I'm sure there are a couple of people I can hit up.
