We've hit the worst part of the retail year at work....the dreadful holiday set. One night, I got off work at 3am....the next, 5:30 am...and had to be back at work the next afternoon to do a regular closing shift after that. On the plus side, we're almost done. 90% of the store is set, and all that remains is one more late night on Monday to finish the music and dvd section. It's such a relief.
Yesterday (my first day off) I took the most wonderful nap. I had gotten up early to do errands: Ginger needed to go to the vet, I had to go up to the tax office and pay taxes on our truck, I had to stop by the post office, and then groceries had to be bought (our fridge was bare after a week when Gregg and I both had to work long hours). When I finished all that, it was just after lunchtime, so I took to my bed with a book. I dropped off into a deep sleep immediately and didn't wake up for three hours. I felt great when I woke up, too. It was clearly a much-needed nap!
Our house is decorated a little bit for Halloween. I have two jack'o lanterns made of plastic lit up on the front steps, there's a sparkly purple witch hat with LED lights on the living room coffee table (you can see it in my last book club party post) and our mantle has miniature pumpkins and gourds on it. I bought a big bag of candy at the grocery store yesterday in case any trick or treaters show up at the house Monday night. Gregg will have to hand it out because I'll be at work. We never get many kids so I don't buy very much. The few that do show up will probably get handfuls of treats just to get rid of them.
|I buy stuff we like, just in case of leftovers.|
This afternoon I took the dogs for a walk. Gregg is working late tonight, setting up a really big aquarium for a new client, so it's just the three of us right now (and Marco, of course).
Time for my own small supper, a mixed drink or two, and a movie on Netflix. Have a good weekend, everyone!
