...and I'm exhausted. I know I disappeared again. I'm sorry. I have no excuse for the beginning of the month, but for the past couple of weeks, I've actually been working. Ok, ok, don't get too excited. My sister was able to get me some seasonal work with her company. You may remember I worked with her a while back as a Perfume Ninja. I actually worked another day with her last month at the Bloomingdale's on Michigan Avenue. Now, she was able to get me a few weeks worth of work for Christmas. Believe me, I'm very grateful. But, I'm just not used to being on my feet that long anymore. Plus, the store I've been working at is not that close to my house (Bolingbrook, for my local friends) so it's making for long days.
Today was probably the last day I'll be off until after Christmas, so I used it to do some baking and treat making. I had intended to start yesterday, but just as I was getting started, I got the call I wish for every day. Monkey Day!!! How can you resist this face?!?!
I made about 36 dozen cookies. No, I'm NOT exaggerating. This is just a small sample of what I made:
I will share one more thing, though. Stud has been working like a dog over at the Golden Arches. That's a post for another day, so I'll complain later. But, today, he was supposed to work until 4pm. After he clocked out for the day, he was sitting in the break room, eating the lunch he never got to eat during his 8-hour shift, when his manager came and asked him if he'd be willing to clock back in, and do them a favor. Look!
Ok, I just signed off with Brian, and I must sign off from here, too. Long day tomorrow. If any of my local Bloggy Buddies are near The Promenade of Bolingbrook tomorrow, stop in at Macy's and say hi!
