Having more than a little trouble getting motivated today. I’m a girl that likes a plan, and I don’t have one yet. ThatManILove and I are still way undecided about how to handle Christmas, all based on when his rig is getting to location. It wouldn’t be so bad, but other people are being affected, as well…the flowback guys have been on location on the mountain in the PA since Sept. 15th. When they go home to Louisiana, they don’t want to come back until the next job. They’re great guys, and I can see their point. They’ve not seen their family in all that time, and one of them has a brand new granddaughter as of last month. At least I’ve been able to visit ThatManILove, though our sons haven’t seen him in over three months. Anyway, enough whining about that.
I’ve over 200 corporate Christmas gifts to deliver on Monday and Tuesday, which will keep me hopping. I have to go into the office today and do some paperwork, and then I’ll take the ZZ crew to the doggy park. The trainer’s not been here in two days, and there’s enough fodder in that for two posts – but I have to wait until I cool down. Hint: my dogs were stupidly exposed to an infected with parvo pup who subsequently died, and I’m not a happy camper. At least my dogs have been vaccinated.
I went and picked up the main gifts for the boys. I can’t post about them (Hey, Booth, love ya) yet, but after Christmas, I’ll post pictures. Amazing, amazing, amazing. I have to take pix of them today before they are wrapped so y’all can see.
I also helped some parents find a new shotgun way below cost (one of my customers won it!) for their young shotgunner son Nate, so I’ll be delivering that today. It’s exciting to help a young one grow, and he’s one I’ve taken under my wing. Last week, I went to borrow Nate’s gun for a friend to try – she’s going to start shooting and needed to check gun fit. When I picked it up from Nate, something had drastically changed. Somehow, someway, Nate has grown taller than me…so his present shotgun (one of my old ones) won’t fit him for long. I did some calling around, and found this gun, and then called his parents and offered to sponsor part of the cost. They agreed to allow ThatManILove and I to do so, and I bet you there will be one happy young man in our town come Christmas day! I'm so excited for him!
The Trav has his interview questions posted. Go check them out! I think I’ve sent out questions to all of you who offered to suffer through an interview – if I missed you, please let me know!
Have a Happy Saturday before Christmas!
