That’s what I’m doing today, and I hope I get it because the boss here is a fruitcake and stickler for making deadlines. She’s so freaking organized and driven to make some deadline 14 months from now that she’s making me work the day after Thanksgiving. But I suppose she’s right. If I had today off, I’d simply waste it by NOT going to the mall, and the deadline she’s working on isn’t the only one she has in the next 14 months. I’d much rather have a day off next month when I can go visit with family. (grin) And why am I speaking of myself in this way? Must be too many cranberries.
Wow–I ate too much, baked too much, and enjoyed having both my boys and Guy with me. All. Day. Long. 😉
So enjoy your shopping. Bring the retailers into the black. Think about the people you love as you shop for them. And smile! It’s contagious. I’ll be writing Rachel sitting in Junior’s with an unexpected guest having a grand latte, double espresso, Italian blend, made with whole milk, heavy on the cinnamon, light on the froth . . . and a shot of raspberry in it.
