I have been trying to shake off the cranky all day and it hasn’t been easy. The snow started yesterday and the roads were starting to get slippery when I got home at 1:30pm. No plow or salt touched my road until after I went to work today. The roads were horrible this morning! I know I say this every year but why do I live here? Let’s be honest…I say that more than just about the snow. I have lived in other places in Ohio, where they actually take care of the roads. I know I am wasting precious energy but damn if it doesn’t trip my trigger every time!
It took most of the morning to shake off that irritation, luckily work was actually okay today. I think the snow kept a lot of people away which worked in my favor because I caught up on some paperwork.
Last night I finished making the work peep’s presents. I made the sugar scrubs last weekend and the bath salts a little bit ago, they just needed labels and gift bags. I also delivered them today. It’s nice to have things out of here. I’ve already decided to take the tree down the 26th or 27th. The only reason I have been leaving it up longer the last couple of years was because of Hogmanay and I’m not having that party this year.
It’s the glow of the lights that I miss the most and now that I have that strand of mini lights over the big doorway into the living room…I have that glow year round.
The family history project shipped and I’m supposed to have them tomorrow. The status update says Urbancrest Ohio on December 16th…this is the kiss of death to a package. I don’t know where this is but it’s like the Bermuda triangle for packages. My Doterra package never left there…from the 10th. I really need this package before Christmas but past experience has suggests that this might be impossible. I’m trying to not freak out about it but it’s just one more thing that isn’t right. The Post Office is really dropping the ball this year!!!
These are things I can’t control and I try to shake it off but sometimes it’s just not that easy….Zia
