The count down!

Well here it is the third very long weekend at work. It seems like I have been living here every weekend for the last 3 weekends. The hours are good, and I really can’t complain since Mr. Visa seems to be staying silent, but I really am looking forward to tomorrow when I don’t have to work period! I do have some major housework to contend with, but hey, maybe the dust bunnies, cobwebs and anything else that’s lurking around can join me in a self proclaimed “I’m tired of working” holiday.

The count down is now officially on, at least for me. There are only 18 more days (not including today), until a brand New Year is upon us. I’m not one for making New Years Resolutions since I’m never able to keep them, so I have struck that off my to do list as I prepare for the hectic weeks ahead. I’m not the Betty Crocker type either. In fact I am the kind of woman on the T.V. commercial where she sprinkles water and flour on her face to make it look like she’s been baking up a storm when her hubby comes in. So for me, it will be off to the different Deli’s to order the odd desert platter and or fruit platter and who doesn’t just love M&M Meats?

The programs have ended at the centre so my days will be free. Well that’s not entirely true. There is the day that I have to go for training so that I can learn how to run a machine I have no desire to use. The senior management have all decided that the low ones on the so called corporate totem pole should have janitorial skills along with office skills. Well I say bull pucky to that, but then again I am one of the low ones on this pole, therefore I have no voice or opinion. One just has to love their job in today’s economic crisis!....NOT. The night time rentals are still on a steady roll so that will keep my evenings still fairly busy. I’m going for the “awwww” factor here my fellow bloggers. I’m doing my rendition of Scarlet O’Hara. The back of my hand is pressed against my forehead and I’m about to pass out! Now do you feel sorry for me????? I didn’t think so. Typing actions are never very convincing.

It seems we’ll have the usual Christmas visitors this year plus a few new friends that will be stopping by throughout the holiday season. We have a small poker night planned for New Years Eve, and if all goes right I just might end up betting my other half. Who knows I just might lose, Oh no that would just be so dang awful! With plenty to eat and drink, and more than our fair share of laughter, I’m sure everyone will have a wonderful time. This year the digital camera will certainly get a lot of use. Well until next time my fellow bloggers............................

Once again, we come to the Holiday Season, a deeply religious time that each of us observes, in his own way, by going to the mall of his choice.
