My big event of the week(end) was Mom coming to visit Sunday lunch through Tuesday lunch. She spoiled us with lots of good food, including bringing homemade Chex mix and puppy chow. We also watched lots of movies together – Argo, Up and Avengers. Monday, we went thrifting while NTB changed my oil and serpentine belt. We got me five new work shirts and a new short winter jacket.  Also stopped out to Meijer for a few things, including her getting a couple photos printed. It was a very nice visit.

Still requesting prayers for my Grandpa. Waiting to hear more news, been pretty quiet since Saturday.

The store started playing Christmas music this week. They swear it’s only one of the five CDs, but it must be a really long one. One of my radio stations has also gone all-Christmas. Still not sure what our holiday plans are for either Thanksgiving or Christmas. Several options floating around, just need to make decisions. Really wish we could get All of our Nook HD reservations into the store now. I know the storm messed some of it up, but come on, one box at a time isn’t a storm problem. We’re missing sales by a lot lately, and we don’t have the devices people want to buy. Self-correcting problem, I’d think… But then it’s always like that until the flow really starts going for a new device. Still frustrating. And they are very pretty. 🙂

Finished Nicholas and Alexandra by Massie, taking a break from history to read some magazines for a couple weeks. Russian history is fairly depressing. At least now I know the trouble with the Disney version of Anastasia. Rasputin being dead before the family died, and not being vindictive towards them in the least. Though he was a rather rotten man, in any case, though not an evil sorcerer.

We had a great weekend hanging out with our friends. Lots of good food again, and much good company. We are definitely still recovering from all the energy spent. The four days straight of 7am shifts is not helping with that. Next week I’m up at 40 hours, but three of the shifts start at 9am, I think I like that better. It’s still rough being away from my computer that much, I really would love to get my home-based businesses up and running and making money. Anyone want to sponsor me while I get started? 😉  Just dreading my 11th holiday season in retail.

I’m told today is Firefly’s 10th anniversary. So that’s cool. Might have to watch some tonight. Need to see the new Dr Who episode(s), too. Rich said a new season of Sherlock is on Netflix. 🙂  Avengers comes out on DVD Tuesday, thanks big brother. And all too soon, it will be time for Halloween and on into the holiday rush.
