Marathon

To say that I’m tired would be an understatement; I am exhausted. I’ve been working for the last eight days straight without a break. I had no desire to get out of bed this morning and even less to go to work. When the alarm went off, my only desire was to pull the blankets over my head and go back to sleep. It took some cajoling from Prime to get me moving.

For a Wednesday, it wasn’t busy. Steady would probably be the best description. We’re still selling toys, clothes, and gift sets, among other things. Some people are now buying the ham for Christmas dinner. Others are buying the artificial Christmas trees, if they can find them. Still others are buying lights. But it almost seems that most people are done with Christmas shopping. It’s been fairly quiet now for the past week.

I’m finally off tomorrow. My plans include staying the hell in bed and playing Shining Pearl. Oh, and snuggling with Lulu and Prime. But the rest of the world can kiss my ass for a day. I’ve had enough human interaction for this month.

About Silverwynde

I'm a Transformers fan, Pokémon player, Brewers fan and all-out general nerd. I rescue abandoned Golett, collect as many Bumblebee decoys and figures as I can find and I've attended every BotCon--official and non--since 1999. I'm also happily married to a fellow Transfan named Prime and we were both owned by a very intelligent half-Siamese cat, who crossed the Rainbow Bridge on June 16, 2018. We still miss him. But we're now the acting staff of a Maine Coon kitty named Lulu, who pretty much rules the house. Not that we're complaining about that.
