I realized that I haven't done a proper update type post in a while. Silly me.


I would like to begin this post with an apology. My Frithmas gift list is a short one this year. It's a bit longer than it has been in a couple of years but there are still not many people on it. I am hoping that next year, I will be able to give gifts to more people. That being said, there are a couple of you who will be getting their gifts a little late. I know what I want to inflict on give you but I need to wait until the next paycheck to send it out. I know that this is lame but I hope to make it up to y'all.

Frithmas Eve:

I do have to work tomorrow but have been told that we will be far fewer trucks in than normal. Hooray for short work days!

Actually, I'm not sure how to take this news. Having spent the last several years in retail hell, Christmas Eve is usually a nightmare. I wonder what it will be like to not have to spend the day getting cursed and screamed at becuase we are out of the most popular item in that store that we had been advertising for a month. I wonder what it will be like getting off of work tomorrow and not need to spend the rest of the night staring off into space while twitching uncontrolably.

The Loot:

Yesterday we got a big box in the mail from my parents full of Frithmas stuff. Along with some brightly wrapped presents, they included our stockings as well as one for the cats. I've had the same stocking hanging up at my parents house every holliday for years. Frank's was added a few years back. It's nice to have them but I would rather that they were still at my parent's and that I could go home for the holliday. Life has greatly improved for my husband and I by moving to the Midwest but oh, do I miss my family.

When I opened up the box, it had quite a bit of news paper and tissue keeping the contents safe. Both cats watched the unpacking with extreme interest. When the box was emptied, I turned it on its' side and stuffed the paper back inside it. Within seconds, they cats were burrowing into the paper and generaly having a grand time. I think I will leave the box out for afew days. Frank said that the cats had a bit of a turf war over it today.

This last bit sort of rambles a bit but bear with me. )

And now I'm off to bed. Just because I get to drive a forklift instead of spending a day in retail hell doesn't mean that I don't have to get up before the ass crack of dawn.

Lazy day

Today was my first day off which made me happy because it gives me the chance to get my legs back in working order from all the walking I’ve been doing. This week has shown me just how out of shape I have become. I slept in until about 8AM this morning. If you consider the fact that I’ve been getting up at 3AM, then I really overslept.

I woke up to a nice, misty, rainy day. Call me strange but I have always liked rain. I got up and spent some time doing absolutely nothing. It was great. My husband who went to bed much later than I did was still asleep. My cat Squee, who has a fondness for getting into places he shouldn’t, found a cupboard that caught his fancy and tried to claw it open. When he couldn’t, he meowed at me to get my attention and tried to get me to open it for him.

When I repeatedly shooed him away from the cupboard, Squee went and annoyed my hubby awake. The cat then proceeded to lead him to the cupboard in hopes that dad would do for him what mom wouldn’t. I tell you, who needs kids when I have cats like these.

I’ve had a nice, lazy day of it. Tomorrow, I have errands to run and laundry to do. I also need to go on a very long walk. I work three days a week in eleven-hour shifts and I am kept constantly on the move the whole time working. I don’t want to return to work after four days of total inactivity. I think my legs would go in strike.
