Firmiversary

Yesterday was F&C's 5 year Firmiversary.  Well, maybe not yesterday exactly.  The only way we really keep up with it is that 5 years ago, on what would have been our first day "open for business", it was MLK day and we decided to take a holiday!  We're real motivated like that!  So every year, on MLK day we say it is our firmiversary.

Probably much like a marriage anniversary, it seems like it happened yesterday in some ways and also a lifetime ago in other ways.  You probably recall this, but most of the work takes place in my home office.  We have another office, but only really go there to meet with clients.  We like to really bare bones our expenses and pocket money we save on fancier office expenses. 

Since yesterday was a holiday, we celebrated big time today.  What did we do?  We did a MAJOR cleanout of the office.  We were highly productive all day (which is so unusual) and only stopped to make chicken salad sandwiches and when I made a run to the office to meet a client and swing by the post office.  I know, quite a way to celebrate 5 years in business!  Party animals, right?  It's a pretty pathetic celebration.

We trashed so much stuff that I had to move the dumpsters closer to the office.  The recycle one even came inside the front door!  Man, did we fill those babies up!

Oh, and we have to go to Staples tomorrow because we burned out our shredder.  As usual, Lola didn't do too much to help (pardon the phone photo). 


Oh, well.  She's not much help, but I think I'll keep her anyway.
I love those ears!
