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...

November Twenty Fifth...


Doing my entry early today as I have to work tonight to set the ad for Friday... Hubby was off to work this morning and gets off a bit early and is planning on stopping at the grocery store on the way home for a couple of things... won't he be surprised... with all the last minute shoppers still getting their Thanksgiving fixings... All the boys are home today... son2 has some homework to do... I've been having a quiet morning on the laptop... had some breakfast... cleaned the boys bathroom, told them they can't use it til Friday as we have company coming tomorrow... watered the houseplants... gotta feed the pets... gonna fix the boys breakfast, son2 is the only one up so far... then have me a bit of lunch... then clean my bathroom and get ready for work... won't be back til late tonight... hopefully hubby will figure out how to tape Glee, Criminal Minds and CSI NY... Son2 just noticed the power is out... I said no it's not, I'm on the laptop, oh I see the icon shows battery and not plug... hmmm wonder why the power is out... hope it comes back on soon or whatever will the boys do... unfortunately it does not take power to clean the bathroom, so will get that done while waiting for power to come on so I can make their breakfast, or they can just have cereal...

November Twenty Third


Got hubby and son1 off to work this morning, son2 and son3 were still sleeping as they have the week out of school and I had several hours of total silence... I played on facebook, had breakfast, cleaned up the dining room getting ready for Thanksgiving... the boys got up... we discovered the tv in the family room would not work, it will play VHS and DVD but no channels... we think the digital box went out and it is not even a year old... the digital box works in my bedroom so we tried the remote from it in the family room and it would not work there... are you still even able to buy the digital boxes... got the boys breakfast... they proceeded to have second and third breakfast throughout the day... I washed three loads of laundry and put away and hung it all up including all the loads I did the other day... had some lunch... hubby came home and we went to Sears to do some more Christmas shopping... got home, had some pot pies for dinner, watched Jeff Dunham Christmas... now we are watching The Big Bang Theory and then taping Castle and going to sleep...
