Fake Eyelashes and Baby Food

See this????

That little ditty of a storm will with mean a TON of rain, or a LOT of snow this weekend. Either way, and no matter who gets it…travel on the weekend before Christmas will be a bummer.

For me, it means I might get stuck working the weekend before Christmas, and the huge chunk of work that I’m already scheduled for next week too. Such is my life. When everyone else hunkers down in the storm, I drive through it to getting to work. Those are the big days in the weather world. It’s usually the same on holidays. It’s a rare holiday that I’m not working. It’s hard. Really hard, BUT, as I remind myself every year — the rest of the year, I really love my job. I can only hope my kiddos understand, or that it will just be their reality. There is guilt this time of the year though…every year. I love Christmastime, but I have grown to really appreciate January 1st. A new fresh start, and a whole year before I have to worry about working through the holidays!!

    Yep. I know. We have been living with these temps for years and years. Talk to my kneecaps about it. Our sweet niece keeps asking me about the weather. What this winter will bring. How long it will last. I told her most likely it will be awful until May. Well, she is from San Diego and LA. Moved to Chicago with a new hubby! Hopefully, she falls in love with Chicago too.

    What a cute little baker you have there. Enjoy whatever time you have. I use to work 5 am to 1 pm when my 4 kids were little. You just make the adjustments and that’s what they know. We are the ones who stress. Have a very Merry Christmas.

    My daughter who is in her mid-twenties now just related to me that she knows the value of working hard and saving up for the future because of my husband and I working hard for years. I too had to leave my two girls and husband to work weekends and holidays. It was there reality then but have gained understanding now. .
