OMG...we're so busy at work I have absolutely NO time for my personal business like online Christmas shopping or blog posting! Whoever made the schedule thought it would be fun to make us do 2 weeks worth of work in 1 week...with half the staff. Now, I wasn't very good in algebra but I think X = sucks in this case.
The net result is that the people who are off this week will have NOTHING to do when they come back on the 27th...because we will have done it all. Oh well, I just have to keep my nose to the grindstone until the 23rd and then I'm off for 11 consecutive days...come on Christmas!!!
(Hmmm...I may need to change my grown-up Christmas wish to nose reconstruction.)
