It’s the end of November

30 Nov

Whew, where did the month go?  When I was little Christmas seemed to take forever to arrive, but now I’m starting to feel like there’s not enough time for me to get everything done – the baking, the shopping, the forty some odd Christmas cards I’m planning on mailing this year.

Thanksgiving came and went since I last updated and we had it at Chris’s grandfather’s and step-grandmother’s home.  They live in a tiny little place and there were seventeen people crammed in it.  I brought the stuffing, which everyone seemed to like, but how could they not when I used the family recipe?  We’ll be doing Christmas Eve/Day with my family, then swapping next year.

Black Friday came and went, too.  I didn’t shop, oh no way, but I did have to work the afternoon and evening shift.  We were pretty busy, busted goal out of the water, and there were several crazy customers I had to deal with, including a shoplifter.  I was so relieved when that day was over, but it’s still been busy.

Actually, after work I headed over to Target.  It was 9:30pm at night and I was able to find everything I wanted, still on sale, with none of the crowd.  I saw a story on the news about a man who was trampled at a different Target when they opened in the morning.  It’s just disgusting.  Is it really worth it to people to save an extra fifteen bucks on a digital camera to step on a fellow human beings head?  It’s just disgusting.

We put up the Christmas tree over the weekend and I finished decorating it yesterday.  I’m planning on taking some pictures/video of it when I find a camera that works and can upload to my computer.  Oh technology.  Anyway, I’ll post those when I get a chance.

Tomorrow is December!  That means NaNoWriMo is officially over at midnight tonight.  The first two days I thought I was going to win hardcore, way over the suggested word count.  Boy was I wrong!  Work got busy, life got busy, and I don’t remember when I actually stopped, but I did stop around 9,000 words.  That’s 41,000 words short of the goal.  Oops.  I still like my story though, so I’m going to keep it on the back burner and finish it… someday… after the holidays… after I finish these Christmas cards.
