I hope everyone is doing well. We are just trying to keep warm, it's pretty cold here. Russell found out that the gas stove in the back room was originally a wood stove and instead of keeping it as a gas one I hope we can convert it back. I'd love to burn wood in there. I love the smell of it. As I mentioned quite awhile back I tried to light the gas once in there and the flames shot out at me.
We had a pretty good Thankgiving. We ended up going to Russell's parents house and his sister and her husband was there, as well as their daughter who is going to have a baby in January. It was a nice peaceful day.
Russell sprained his ankle at work a few days back. He did go to the hospital which is unusual for him..... to make sure it was not broken. Since it was a work injury, they paid for it. He has not worked in a few days and hopefully they will wait awhile before they call him back in. He can't get his work boots on with the brace he is wearing for support.
Work for me has been way too rushed. I feel like I can never get everything done the way it should be done because they keep giving me more and more to do. I feel like I have to rush through everything and do a half a$$ job instead of doing it right. Maybe I'm too much of a perfectionist. The last three days I was at work I felt sick probably due to stress to the point where I had to go home 2 hours early yesterday. I don't need that added stress in my life. If I just had the extra help I need I wouldn't have these problems.
Christmas seems to have gotten too out of control. I don't feel the need to celebrate this holiday of greed any more. I look around me at all the madness and the people who spend months preparing for this one day or some who even prepare for it the entire year. Why not spread some of this throughout the year?
I have two interesting stories I heard at work. One woman who works there told about how she went out to her car and noticed that the door was unlocked even though she'd locked it. Then she noticed that there was all kind of trash in her car. She thought someone had a party in her car. The way she told it, you had to laugh. Then she got one of the security guys at work to call the police. The police came and she went in the car and started looking through the papers for her insurance stuff but it could not be found. It was then, that she realized it was not her car. This one was parked right next to hers! She told the police who were understanding. Boy was she embarrased!
Another woman at work told me about how a homeless guy once came to her house looking for food. She made him breakfast and told him to wait there and she quickly went back in to get him some coffee. When she got back out after a very short time, we was nowhere in sight. He could not have disappeared that quickly. Later she talked to a neighbor that told her the same man came to her door and she told him to get lost. What we both think was that this was an Angel in human form. This happens quite often.
Well, that's it for now. I hope y'all are enjoying your week! Blessings.
