I’m am so ready for our upcoming Christmas vacation. At work this week I’ve been berated by people who have an inflated sense of the own importance; conveniently forgetting the personal sacrifices I made over the year to help them out. I’ve learned a lesson that I already knew; so that makes them even more aggravating. I’m always glad to come home, spend some time with The Wife, and forget about work for a while. I can’t wait to be off until after the first of the year and have an extended period time away. My long scheduled time off for the holiday can’t come soon enough.
