So thanks to everyone who’s stuck around; I know I haven’t been here lately. Sorry! 😦 Life gets chaotic this time of year as any of you who have stuck around since I began this blog back in August of 2011 (I think).
I survived my Black Friday shift; it wasn’t bad in the sense of chaos or hectic/frantic rushes. In fact this year’s Black Friday was actually slow and very boring in comparison to other past Black Fridays. It sort of reminded me of a typical Saturday shift.
This Christmas is going to be a relatively calm and easy one; we aren’t putting our Christmas tree up this year as my wrists have mostly given up all hope of ever supporting things like our huge crates that we haul down from the attic every year and I never finished cleaning our Family/Recreation Room where we normally put the tree. I am still hoping to get a Christmas wreath this year and/or one of Daddy’s angels (I am going to try to get a photo of it up here some time) down from the attic. We have 3 angels, one for each of us remaining here on Earth.
I am happy to report I only need to buy 3 more gifts or for 3 more people and I’m done with Christmas shopping. I know it’s early, but as always I try to get done as soon as I can since I work in the mall.
This weekend begins Advent (I know I was wrong, Thayne! Sorry misremembered). I think we’re also beginning my favorite liturgical cycle: Cycle B or the Gospels will all be from Mark or John.
Well, guess I’d better sign off as I still have more to do and need to get some sleep (somehow) tonight!
Love and prayers, as always! ❤
