Getting ready for . . . X-mass?


Already? Yeah, well that's what happens when you are in retail. The shops are all getting ready for X-mass before Halloween is even over... I mean, Santa is already interviewing children in our Mall!!!! Crazy! It seems that every year he comes earlier and earlier.


Well, my boss came up to me, asking; "How would you like to pick up a few hours at Sears Optical?" Well, I'm already working two days a week at SGH (Sunglass Hut) and then another three at LensCrafters, why not add another location to my list of places to be? Not to mention that Boders across the street could use a little help. (I would love to work there full time . . . but they can only offer part.) Needless to say, I didn't accept. It's bad enough trying to get Thanksgiving off with two locations wanting you to work for them that day.


Uh . . . ok, so that's my little story. Matt is lucky to only work at one location! *I turn green with envy at anyone who has a one-location job! Anyway, have fun getting ready for X-mass - oh! And everyone! Have a great HALLOWEEN!

Welcome welcome! I like your picture, very nice!

Just remember...once your book hits stores, you can just quit all your jobs because you'll be making millions by then! Well, at least I hope that's how it works out for you! Very exciting! :)

Yeah... I noticed Christmas decorations out before I even started thinking about Halloween. It's pretty redonkerous! Yesterday I was at a craft store and they were PLAYING Christmas music! I thought that was taking it a little too far.

And that's one of the worst things about working in retail, let alone more than one location! Hope you can get some good time off! Matthew has already nominated you to bake a pumpkin pie. Well, okay, that was partly my idea... :)

Are we organizing Christmas gifts this year or are we doing what we did last year?

Cute picture, Christy. We ought to make you our offical in-residence artist! Oh, that's right: we already have! Semi-offical, anyway.
I'm with Carrie: This will all change soon, and you will be able to write and draw all day long. A-a-a- what a way to live!
