love my days off

my ornament from Cin, an old JS friend

The tree will be coming down just after New Years, so I thought I'd post a few more pics. This is an ornament that Cin sent me, either last year or the year before. My memory is terrible! I got a chuckle out my reflection in the shiny bulb beside it. Reminded me of those people that post pics of toasters on kajiji, and it takes a few moments before you realize that the dude with the camera is nude. (I'm not nude, I am wearing PJ's)

At any rate, I'll spend the next few days enjoying the tree and some of my other decorations before having to take it down. Working at the off-price store has been both good and bad. Good, because I have lost another six pounds, making it twenty-two pounds in total. Bad, because I hate the way that I am dismissed by some customers and some managers. To be honest, I'm grateful for the chance at making an income, but after a few months I started resenting the loss of time with family.

And that is the biggest reason to go to college. Maybe I didn't know what I wanted to do in 1983, but I know now, and it's not working at an off-price store!


It wasn't my day off! I got a call and had to go in until 7 pm. Guess I should check my calender more often!


  1. I'm just catching up... I love the picture of Tokyo a few entries back.

    I hope 2010 is a better year for you! Ah, JS... I still miss it. KCL (and blogger) are ok, but JS was best!

  2. I think the whole Skype thing is going to give us a lot more "naked guy" shots than we ever need to see.
    I hope 2010 is a positive year for you and your family.
    Happy New Year.

  3. I know what I want to be now, too. It has nothing to do with what I do now, nor with the maths and sciences I took in high school. I guess I'm kinda schooling myself with the camera, but noit sure I will ever graduate :-)

    Happy New Year, Kate!
