Confessions of an Innkeeper:
My name is Michelle and I am not an organized or well-prepared holiday shopper. I try to be. Every year, I convince myself I’ll not only buy Christmas cards, but I’ll actually mail them. Get cute little gift tags and neatly address each gift. Make my lists, do my shopping, and have everything tidily wrapped under the tree – a tree that will go up the day after Thanksgiving. Yet somehow, every year, I find myself standing in line at Walmart on Christmas Eve with a headache, sore feet, and a sense of exhausted desperation. However, I still completely and utterly love Christmas morning. Every year.
Head Housekeeper at IBB Kelsi loves to play Kenny G’s “The Classic Christmas Album” over and over. And over. Starting in October. Every day. Until others on the staff (who shall remain nameless) want to put it through the wood-chipper and laugh evilly as the shattered pieces fly. Not because we hate Christmas music but because there should always be boundaries in the workplace. This year, I’m putting a Joe Diffie “Mr. Christmas” CD in the Kenny G case so that Kelsi can learn to sing “Leroy the Redneck Reindeer.”
