A Quick Christmas Recap

Well, Christmas has come and gone for another year. It makes me sad and relieved at the same time. The fact is, Christmas is stressful no matter what you do for a living, or how your family acts during the festivities, or what kind of presents you receive from loved ones. I'm pretty sure retail ranks up there in the challenging holiday jobs department, but I still love it for some reason. I think it's because I see so many good people rise to the occasion, and get to laugh at those who make the holidays a million times worse by being jerks--or that try to anyway. And I love my work friends during the weeks leading up to Christmas, as we all humorously lose our minds together. Group delirium and the subsequent laughter at work? Priceless.
As per usual, there was drama in my family during Christmas Eve AND Day, but I will still--as always--take away only fond memories from it all. It's what I do--it's what a lot of people do--and it was mostly great anyway. Of course, it doesn't hurt that I RACKED UP during Christmas. Gift cards galore, adorable (and much needed) new clothes and shoes...and a brand spankin' new 32" flat screen, no glare TV. I'm in love with it! The multitude of DVDs I also received are being enjoyed a million times more by me due, in large part, to this new TV.

Anyway, I'll write a longer post later to share some of the funny stories from the Christmas season, but for now, I've got lots to do on my day off. Can't wait for CHATTA NEW YEARS!!
