I'm not quite understanding why we have to have a Christmas tree in our department. And there just isn't any room. File cabinets have filled the space from last year. I'm not going to lie, part of my scroogosity is due to the fact that I will have to put it up. I'll have to list "put up Christmas tree and accompanying decorations" on my weekly report. And then it will be obvious that I really don't have much to do.
Jessica's baby, Eliza, died yesterday. It has been so long since I've talked to her but she wrote us a month ago and seemed hopeful. I never got the chance to meet Eliza but I know she was brave and strong. And now she's at peace.
