gathering 'round the conference table

I woke up just before 6:00 this morning knowing it was nearing 9:00 on the East Coast. Somewhere I imagine a conference room filling up with people milling around the coffee, bagels, and fruit plates before settling into their seats around a big table. File folders, legal pads, pens, laptops, one of those big phones for conference calls. Banter, pleasantries, water-cooler chat. Then down to business.

Today's the day the board meets to decide on assignments for Mike's job. We suspect we'll be discussed today. We have no way of knowing at this time. Even if they do discuss Mike's placement today we might not find out until next week. But it's nice to know they've been thinking about planning the discussions.

For the last few days I've had sort of a Christmas Eve feeling about this approaching meeting date. I don't know how long I can sustain this under the guise of excitement before it becomes anxiety or full-on panic attack.
