I smell Christmas already!

What does Christmas smell like, for you? When I was still working, I know that Christmas is near when I can smell my 13th month bonus in the air. The smell of new money inside that envelope handed almost always late. Mmmmm. It's one of the most anticipated times in an employee's life, to be given that lovely bonus during this time of the year. But I don't smell it now. Poor me. Literally.

I should have mentioned this in my earlier post regarding disadvantages of working at home. WAHMs (or WAHDs, for that matter), DO NOT HAVE CHRISTMAS BONUS. Sad? Yeah. Am I regretting my decision to be a WAHM now? Nope. Not ever. As much as I would love to be given that, I'd pass the chance up for what I have now. Which made me realize, I'm not as money hungry as I think I am. I mean, come on. I would not trade measly cash that only comes once in a year for the opportunity to spend all the time that I want with this piglet.




Before I end up, noticed the cute banner on the upper right hand corner of my blog? Makes me feel the Christmas spirit even here in my blog, courtesy of the great Amanda Fazani who writes Blogger Buster, my blog bible. Hey, spread the spirit. Grab your own now :)
