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

Presents:

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.
