No regrets. Quieter and deadlier. Whereas the dog was useless.
The weekend was odd: Saturday was idiotically busy, while Sunday was so slow that we had to cut payroll. There was no Badgers game on Saturday and we were going to get hit by a storm later in the day, so that’s probably why we were slammed. Sunday was snowy and also a Packers home game, which was probably why we were so dead. Before you ask, no, the Packers didn’t win. They lost to a 2 – 9 team. Seriously. Any hopes of a Super Bowl this season are pretty much gone. Playoffs? Forget it. Here’s hoping that next year is better.
Today was quiet again. Monday was apparently a bit busier, but I was off so it didn’t matter. I’m surprised things were so slow today; we’ve got 17 days left until Christmas. I know for a fact that not everyone is done with their shopping. Or maybe they’re waiting for the Saturday before Christmas. Who knows at this point?
We’ve gotten snow, which means I can’t walk from the bus stop until next year. I don’t trust the Menards parking lot–they don’t plow it or salt it decently at all–and the sidewalk next to the Ross is under two inches of ice. That particular sidewalk is never plowed or salted by anyone and it is covered with ice until the middle of May. Again, this is not an exaggeration. It makes walking in the winter damn near impossible and extremely dangerous. So I’m stuck grabbing rides from Prime.
Don’t ask me how, but we have sold out of Christmas trees at Costco. That’s a first.
