Christmas parties coming up

My parents have invited us to the company Christmas party being held at the Country Club they belong to. I haven't worked for them since Oct 2004 - that's when I left and went straight into the hospital until I had the babies. I never returned except to do a few little things for the company here & there.
Anyway, I'm very excited about going. I cannot wait to see everyone - I haven't seen most of them since the 4th of July picnic. I have lost 30 lbs since they last saw me so I'm also excited about that too. I actually have a black dress (size 5/6) that I can squeeze into. I bought from Express about 4 years ago and I think I did wear it to the Christmas party but I doubt they will remember - heck, I never remember what people wear. I just need to get some shoes since most o fmy dressy shoes don't fit me anymore. My shoe size went from a size 6 to a size 7 after I had the kids. Weird!
I also have the Twins Club Holiday dinner on the 13th. Need to figure out what I'm wearing to that. Then on the 16th I am going to our girls annual Holiday party but that is a pamper theme so we are going in our pj's. That'll be a ton of fun. Since the theme is pampering, my pollyanna will be all Mary Kay products (I'll dip into my inventory). I'm looking forward to seeing my friends for that. I haven't seen them for about 6 months!!! Where does the time go? But it's so sweet they are always thinking of me and we stay in touch by email or by phone.
Fun times coming up! December is always a very busy time of year for me. Even though we are financially strapped beyond words, I don't have to put out that much money for these events and I can enjoy myself! YAY!!! I need something happy in my life right now (besides my two great kids).
Hoping this job interview works out and I can be happy that I'll be bringing in a nice pay check to get caught up on things. Deep down I am very nervous and worried how it'll all be. Like putting the kids in daycare and me working full time. But some how, some way things will work out. I just don't like major changes and this is one huge change in my life. It is for the better though and it doesn't mean it has to be forever, right?
