Reader's of my other blog might remember this pretty pointsettia that Bill was given by his work. I love it and found it thoughtful, but I also worried that he might have gotten it in place of a Christmas bonus. With the uncertainty facing lots of local companies, it wouldn't have been a shock! We just hoped for the best, because we had to finish Christmas shopping and catch up the utilities.
One morning, about a week later, Bill calls to say that he'd gotten his bonus, and it's enough to cover everything.
It's amost 10:00 pm Alberta time, so I think that Bill and I are going to watch a movie. Happy New Year! May 2009 be a little kinder to all of us.
