Christmas shopping...

Yesterday, I knocked a couple more things off my giving list for the season. I'll wrap the gifts later on today, and this afternoon I'll do a bit more shopping, as I managed to score 4 "buy 50.00 worth of merchandise, take 25.00 off the total cards". I ended up giving 2 cards to my sister, 1 to my mother and kept 1 for myself. we had fun shopping this afternoon, and I ended up with a pair of beige skinny cords ( size 11), a purple blouse ( size L) and a beautiful long teal coloured sweater. We also attended the Autism fundraiser, my mom won three times, my sister once and me, well I ended with 20.00 less in my pocket. I had a quick visit with a friend and we're making plans to do something grown up in December.

I worked last night and we stayed steady until midnight. I ended up leaving work with 115.00 in my pocket. Score one for the middle aged waitress. ( OMG, I'm technically middle aged now... YIKES) Normally, when I'm managing the restaurant, I stop taking tables around 9:00, but last night it was after 11:00 when I stopped taking tables. And yes, I was tired last night. Being on my feet for 7.5 hours is long some nights.

Money spent this week-end, 53.00 for gas, 9.00 for breakfast this morning, 49.00 for new clothes, 26.25 for my nasty habit and 20.00 for Autism.

I'm having a short week at work this week, I'll be home again Tuesday night, and I'm excited to being home for more than 2 days!

Wow, great night for you and lots of cash to show for all your hard work.
Short week is right I'm only working 3 days and them I'm off for 4 days YA HOOO!!!
I'm sure you feel the same way.
Seems like you are really getting a head start on the Christmas shopping.
I'm almost finished and will start wrapping after Remembrance Day.
Then I will start my Christmas baking, and decorating.
I think I will really get into Christmas this year because I will have almost 12 days off.
Did you book time off also?

I can imagine how your feet felt after such a long shift, I seem to have spent all my working life standing up.

Well done on your spends you are doing so well.

Lol! Is your nasty habit smoking? That's what I immediately think because that's mine. I'm trying to quit and I only smoke about a pack a week but still.
its me, sam said…
Yep, smoking is my bad habit!

I'll be working from home for around 3 weeks or so! I'm getting pretty excited, as DD is done the 10th and I'm going to pick her up that day!

I don't know how you do it - waitressing has got to be one of the toughest jobs going AND you have another job as well? Guess I shouldn't complain...Sounds like you've got Christmas under control, wish I could say the same...
