Ho ho ho
Wednesday was a day off for me, but that doesn’t mean it was an easy day. I had to do a fair amount of last-minute stuff for Christmas, which normally would have been fine except for the fact that traffic was absolute miserable. Trips that normally would have taken 20 minutes were taking an hour. I don’t know, the last few days before Christmas usually are a busy time on the roads, but this year seemed much worse. It could have been the freakishly warm weather, or maybe just my perception. One thing that’s clear is that my tolerance for heavy traffic is sinking like a stone. And it never was particularly high to begin with. On a better note, I went to the gym in the evening and had a decent session, cable rows and other back work.
Thursday, Christmas Eve, wasn’t completely a day off for me. I had a four-hour shift at the Major Home Improvement Retailer, 11 to 3, and it was much busier than I ever would have expected. There was quite a last-minute rush of customers, and there also was a huge freight shipment to be packed out. I spent almost the entire shift rushing around like crazy. This caused it to zip by in no time flat, in fact time was so accelerated I was sorry it hadn’t been an 8-hour shift. As for the rest of Christmas Eve, we had a nice fish dinner (though not the traditional seven fishes) after some delays.
There’s not much to say about Christmas Day, other than the typical stuff: exchanging gifts, having a big dinner, and just enjoying a day off. Merry Christmas.
