Maternity nurse, 12 hour shifts. I haven't worked Christmas for several years, it's my turn this year. But if it's slow, I may get out early as I do have really high seniority. Not counting on it tho.

Good luck getting out tomarrow!

Yeah, but our chimney is damaged. My dad doesn't want to pay the $3k to fix it, but still wants to burn fires. I'm dreading what might happen.

I'll look, but I'm not sure if I want to go anywhere tomorrow, lol.

I'm off tomorrow. It's my first day off since last Wednesday. I plan on doing NOTHING. I also have to work on Sunday And Christmas Eve. The store's closed Christmas Day, thankfully.

It does, but it's like 4 or 6 hours a day, six days a week. And then I wind up staying longer because he expects me to get 8 hours worth of work done in that short time frame.

I'm likely going to wind up running to another Hallmark store tomorrow, just to see if I can find it. I want that ornament

I can sure see why.


I hope you're being paid for the time that you're at work; not just the allocated shift hours.

I'm an hourly employee. It's illegal for them to not pay me for hours worked.

I never said I was in a MALL!!!!! It was a stand alone Sears store. Turns out I wasted my time. I think actually they gave me extra stuff that I already picked up a week ago, but they were out of one item probably because I already picked it up!

WalMart wasn't that bad. I was amazed. Finally we're back home and I can start on all the other stuff I have to do!

We're driving halfway up California tomorrow. Mom is making us Dungeness Crabs. Sunday we are going to the Walt Disney Museum and for Sushi for dinner. No plans for Monday other than Chicken Marsala.

At least you are getting some more hours. Stay safe on the chimney, that's dangerous. I hope you have a calm Christmas Day.

I never ever underestimate the need for the male species to demonstrate their stupidity. If it is broke, it needs to be fixed!

Next project: turn three two-bone prime rib roasts into six one-bone roasts. Can you believe that I found two two-bone roasts from last year in my freezer as well as one one-bone, and this is in addition to the the one two-bone o knew I had and planned for Christmas dinner! What a surprise coming home with four new roasts. In addition, I still had three hams left and just bought three more. I think we'll be doing a lot of neat eating in the next month!

Should I stick a frozen one in my luggage for the trip to WDW and cook it in the room at Kidani?
