When I found out from my store manager, who was an usher at my wedding, I was just as unprofessional as she was, I got hired at my current job and basically told them I would work the last few days of my schedule, no two week notice, for that week and leave them. Which were their busiest days of the year. So I got the last laugh against her, she was very angry with me, she confronted me. Asked me if I had anything to say to her, and my response was: "Not to you." I turned my back and walked away. That was the first, last, and only time I acted that unprofessional at a job.

I am very sad for the current employees there, losing their jobs right before the holidays.

I hope you all have had a great Friday thus far.
Glad you will be able to go back tomorrow. Just take it easy, as you know!

So sad these people will be losing their jobs, as you said, before the holidays. I feel for them greatly. That has to be so hard.

All I needed to know about Christmas
I learned on MMC:

Celebrate all year long
Sing a Christmas song at least once a day
Play games with others
Laugh together
Pray for each other
Cry when your heart aches
Bake often and share the recipes and pictures
Watch Christmas movies, even in the summer
Take lots of pictures of your furbabies to share
It is ok to say Merry Christmas, happy holidays or Xmas
Say thank you often
Say hello to newcomers
Believe in Santa…and
Never, ever, loose the wonder of everything Christmas


Christmas is coming again, as it does faithfully every year.
It will come no matter what is going on in the world and in our lives.

We together have faced a year of great joys, welcoming new lives into the world and great sorrows in saying goodbye to friends, family members and beloved pets.
Praying, laughing and crying together as we shared those moments in our lives that we just knew others here would understand.

From daily conversations, to those special times of community chats, Christmas in July and greetings on the podcasts. With the ornament exchange and the mailing of Christmas cards, we bring Christmas into each others homes from around the world. Our very own Kringle radio keeps us dancing to Christmas tunes all year long. Of course we cannot forget the main event party of the year, “The Worlds Largest Christmas party”!!! The only one you can attend without the worry of what to wear.

So celebrate the birth of Jesus and the miracle of His coming. Get together with family and friends. Believe in Santa Claus and his magic. Give to those who are not as blessed as you are. Brighten those dark nights with bright lights and beautiful decorations.
Be excited, the Christmas season is about to begin!
Thank you sharing this Christmasstar. This is such a beautiful post, I love it

Good morning!
It is going to be sunny today with a high of 55 degrees.
Not too much going on for me today. Unfortunately the girls all have to work again today. And my husband has a few things to do around the house. So I am going to head over to my parents house by myself to have lunch with them. My brother will also be there with his wife so it will be nice to visit all of them. I will meet up with my hubby and kids later today for dinner. I hope everyone is well and has a very happy Sunday!!!

I don't really rearrange my room, but I do have to carry a few pieces of small furniture to my basement to store, until the tree comes down, to make room.

She said she was glad to come home and rest in her own bed....

I tucked her in, kissed her forehead, pulled the blinds closed and shut her door, just like I used to when she was still a little girl (made me feel good)!

So, I,m sitting here listening to Kringle Radio, writing some checks and getting ready to go downstairs and watch the kick-off of Battlestar Galacatica at 9 pm on the BBC channel!

It's me, the TV and some Hickory Farms smoked gouda cheese tonight~
That's so sweet! She must have been really tired. I hope you still enjoyed your night. Sounds like you did!
