MIA, again

Yes, I just realized that I haven't posted much lately. I tent to go through spurts. Oh well. I'm back now (let's see how long I can keep it going this time!).

How's life been for you? It's been very cold, snowy, and stressful here. The lowest we got down to was -31, and it only lasted a day, thank goodness. It's been around -20 for the last few weeks, and unfortunately, we still get snow when it's that cold. It's amazing how much we've already gotten! And the stressful, that's about work. Inventory went off without a hitch, but now I'm working on records maintenance. Basically, I have to touch every single piece of paper that we have in the branch and re-file it all. And, I'm behind. It all has to be done by next Monday, and I'm pretty sure I'm not going to be done without a lot of overtime, which I am not looking forward to. Looks like I'll be working from 7-5 at least this week, and maybe the weekend too. Lame.

But, I am getting excited for Christmas. I was planning on putting up my Christmas tree yesterday, but it just didn't happen. Maybe one night this week. I'm not doing a huge amount of decorating since we're not even going to be here, but a tree is a must. I want to wrap all of my presents, but I feel weird doing it without the tree being up. So, the tree must go up! It doesn't take me much time to decorate it anyways.

But, now I should get ready for work. My hair is so long now that it takes forever to dry and straighten, I better get my ass in gear if I want to make it to work on time!

Work Update

Wow! It's been a while since I've done an update from work! I guess I must have been busy the last little while! Not so much now. With the crappy prices of natural gas, a lot of projects have been cancelled in our area, and it's taking a toll. The projects aren't cancelled forever; they're just being mothballed, but it could be a couple of months or a couple of years before they get started up again. Not the best time to be in the north, but we're going to have to stick it out!

I'm right into planning for Christmas right now. I keep thinking that we don't need to spend a lot of money, but then I keep thinking about what I can buy for people. Gotta stop myself! We're going to be doing a lot of travelling, so I will be gracing lots of family and friends with my presence! And John's too, of course! Molly is going to stay at Gramma and Grampa's to keep them company for Christmas, so it'll be lonely in our truck, but it's ok! The longest journey is from FSJ to Edmonton, then Golden to home. Every other leg should be ok because they are all short jaunts. I can't wait to spend the night with my sis in Edmonton, my good friends in a town just outside of Calgary, and with lots of family in Golden. We're contemplating going through PG to see John's family too. Anything is possible with us!

I've also been crocheting a lot. I mean, a lot. I have lots of finished projects! Maybe tomorrow I'll do a photo bomb! I've been working on lots of fun things!  Other than that, not much is going on. Winter is well upon us, and it won't be going away for a long time. April at least. Oh well.

Time to go to work! Well, to get to work, I guess is the right way of putting it! Have a good day one and all!
