No turkey, lotsa trees
Thursday was of course Thanksgiving, which fortunately was not a workday thanks to the Major Home Improvement Retailer’s distinctly civilized decision to remain closed. Thanksgiving dinner went well, even though we eschewed the traditional turkey in favor of roast leg of lamb. A much better choice, if I may say so. Friday was mostly a goof off day. Needless to say I had zero desire to participate in Black Friday shopping sprees. I was going to go to the gym but figured I’d go instead after work on Saturday. Big mistake.
As for Saturday and Sunday, they’re kind of a blur. I spent eight hours each day in the Christmas tree lot at the MHIR. Eight extremely busy hours, as there was a nearly non stop flow of tree buyers. Between the trimming and the wrapping, and especially tying the trees onto cars, it was exhausting and surprisingly dirty work (washing tree sap off one’s hands is no easy feat). It goes without saying that I had zero energy for the gym.
