I wish everyone a very happy, safe and love-filled Thanksgiving today. Safe travels for those on the road, and a snow storm for those waiting outside retail establishments for sales. 😉 (No, I’m not looking forward to working this weekend, but at least the time will go by fast.)

This past weekend was pet-sitting while folks went out east, this weekend is pet sitting while folks go to Indiana. Poor Ralphie’s back in his cone, though. Dusty is ignoring me so far today though I imagine he’ll come out when I start eating dinner.

In the oven so far: Cornish hen and homemade stuffing. In an hour, I’ll switch the stuffing for the yams, and check on the hen. Tuesday I had an excellent Thanksgiving feast with my gaming friends, last night the folks I pet-sit for made me another excellent feast, today is with the pup and cat, and tomorrow, I imagine there will be all sorts of food at work. 🙂 Quite a good Thanksgiving week.

School-wise, I’ve got an annotated bibliography and summary to do this weekend, and one post to reply to sometime before Sunday. Next week is my last week for the semester. Hurray, a break so I can catch up on Dr Who and Bones. 😉

All in all, a good start to the holiday season.

Two More Shopping Days Left December 22, 2011

And it’s raining. So much rain this week. Winter has started with a week of 50+ degree weather and rain storms. Not even fun rain storms. No lightning or thunder, just wet. Not that I really want to drive in snow, but I really don’t like driving in rain either. And people are just as accident prone, either way.

Busy, busy work days. It makes the time fly by, but also makes breaks hard to come by. Lunch, no problem, but the 15s didn’t happen today. There’s just no way to have enough people working to take care of all the customers, so I just run from one to the next for 4 hours at a time. (Lunch break in the middle of the 8 hour shift.)  Only have had one really cranky customer myself so far, and as it wasn’t my fault, so I passed it off to a manager without a guilty conscience.

Got the last bit of wrapping I needed, and will probably be making more Chex Mix tonight. I wanted to make stuffing, maybe next week. I do not want to brave the stores the next couple days any more than my work schedule requires. Looking forward to Christmas dinner with my Brother and family. Also looking forward to The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo.

Everybody have a Merry Christmas this weekend. 🙂
