Bring on the Holidays!!! I'm ready.

So the Holidays are upon us. Whether you like it or not. Next week is Thanksgiving and soon after that Santa will be coming down the chimney. With retail being my industry of choice I know what I am doing, working!!! I will be working so that all of the other consumers can buy more for themselves and gifts for others. This year, probably more than any other of recent history, I am glad I will be working. There are so many out there without a job that I am truly thankful I have one. Retail has been hit hard lately with stores closing and layoffs. If you are working this Holidas season, be thankful. Yes, we will miss out on some of those family fun moments and those parties, but make the best of it. (i'm writing all of this for me so that in late December when I'm down, you all can remind me to be thankful). Lisa and I are kicking our season off on Sunday with our Small Group at Church. We will be sharing in a Thankgiving dinner and fun with them. Then on Thanksgiving we will be eating lunch at home together and then enjoying a fun night out at the Gaylord Texan's Ice Exhibit ( With working both the day before and after it is hard to go anywhere. We think that we have come up with a pretty good plan of celebration. Then it will be on to Christmas!! So what are your plans??

My plans are the same as yours. I can not wait to spend the day with you!! That exhibit is going to be so cool. (literally - It's like 9 degrees in there)I am so thankful for my job as well. I know I complain about being tired sometimes, but I say bring it on!!!
