I've been working at a resale shop for the local Humane Society. It's volunteer, so I only get paid in store points, snacks and the occasional dog visit. But it's fun, rewarding and the staff are quite amusing.
(If you live in Chicagoland, stop by and do some shopping. [link] I work Saturday afternoons. )
As a consequence of working there, I've been surrounded by Christmas decor since a little before Halloween. I officially got sick of Xmas in mid-November.
And since we've put up the tree, I'm officially sick of pulling Reece out of its branches. We had to leave up undecorated for a little while to gauge their reaction, during which Digby attempted to climb up and dumped it over. (A 14 lb. kitty cannot perch on a wobbly plastic plant.) Nevermind that I keep finding bits of garland in the kitchen...
Anywhooo... How have you been?
