November Twenty Eight...


We just finished watching The Grinch and having turkey again... One more day of work and this holiday shopping weekend will be done... Wednesday worked til 11pm getting everything ready for the day after... Friday got to work at 3:45am, opened at 4am, small rush but nothing like we have seen before, by 6am there was finally a good busy crowd, by 8am I was at lunch and we were starting to get tore up, by 11am the store was at 56% of our goal for the day, 12pm the morning specials ended and 12:30pm I was on my way home... I only had four hours of sleep the night before so spent the day vegging on the laptop... the store did not make it's goal, so we didn't do our million but the shoe department made it's goal for the day and then some... Today got to work at 6am, the closers were not able to finish cleaning so we were quite shocked by the mess, so I put up the couple of signs for this morning doorbusters and started cleaning men's and athletic shoes, stocked the work boot tables and came home at 10:45am... Hubby made me go to Target today, I don't go shopping on holiday weekends, too crowded... Target wasn't too bad and we even found a few more Christmas presents plus got a couple on after Thanksgiving specials that we wouldn't have got another time... Then we came home and had another lazy day... Hubby did get the lights on the Christmas tree yesterday... We had the best Thanksgiving! wonderful company and good food... still eating turkey leftovers, hubby's putting them away now... had to make more potatoes and stuffing though... but boy am I tired this weekend... I have Monday off and the boys are back in school, so I can regroup... gotta go help hubby clean up the kitchen and get the boys off to bed so I can sleep...
Happy Journaling...

Sounds busy, busy, busy - but good! I'm not ready to go back to work tomorrow. I need a repeat of the long Thanksgiving weekend!

I am glad you had a really good Thanksgiving and that you have Monday off to relax.

With so much work, and so little sleep, it is funny to me that you call time to rest a "lazy day." You do need to rest sometimes! I don't think that is being lazy :)
