Goodbye (for December)

Hello everyone.

Just so everyone knows, I will not be able to update this blog next month, or the rest of this month. I work retail and this is our busy season. Tomorrow starts a 5 day work week where I have 37 hours. It's quite a step up since the previous weeks I was just working 4 days averaging 25 hours a week. We're quite short staffed at the moment with only having two new seasonal people (one I don't have much hope lasting much longer) and still being down people since they fired 4 people several months back. At least I'm lucky, right now all our full time people are working 6 days with 50+ hours. I don't think I could do that. 

Right now I'm focusing on surviving the holiday season. I haven't been sharing much with you, but I have been getting new dolls (including a Titan Ponytail), working on E-bay (I did 10 listings today!), and sewing. The past few weeks I've actually made a pair of underwear, a pair of socks, a shirt for Joe, a pair of pants, a shirt, a skirt, an underskirt, and two dresses. It doesn't sound like much but when I was working at that new place I wasn't sewing anything. This is actually quite a step up from then.

I'll see everyone in January. I hope everyone has a safe and happy Holiday season. And please, be nice to retail associates, they're trying to do their job as best as they can and are pretty powerless.


  1. Enjoy your holidays. I guess I can wait until January to see who the blurred face belongs to. Retail work is stressful. I worked retail a few years ago and the holidays can be brutal. Don't let yourself get stressed.

  2. Happy Holidays to you and your loved ones.
