    I hope you all are staying sane.  Thanks for all the hard work you do.  Sleep is the best antidote for stress.

    Thanks, Kuan!  Sanity.. what is this sanity you speak of? /img/vbsmilies/smilies/lol.gif   Christmas is very soon and then things will die down in January when everyone is paying off their Christmas bills.

    Happy Holidays!

    As our luck has it someone is always under the weather at this time of year and...

    apparently it is MY turn'

    I  went to  work today and was sent off the line and then home PDQ.  I felt OK here but the heat of the line just knocked me over.

    I'm alive but miserable... I still feel like a big pile of poop and I need a nap///

    Whine over... I am sick......(

    sleep? my internal clock is so askew, i'm not sure it will ever be right again...not to mention the loss of brain cells from sleep deprivation...some days i work the breakfast/lunch shift, some days the lunch/dinner/closing shift...tough nut is the lunch/dinner/closing shift, then back again for the 6 a.m. breakfast shift. with each passing day of insufficient sleep, i find myself in the walk in alot asking 'now what am i in here for?' i know, waah, waah, waah....i shoulda' been a starlet...january soon come mon, then in the arms of orpheus i'll be!

    Yep... I survived.  The worst of it is over and today is back to normal for another year.

    Yep, and the seriously reduced hours that come with this time of year. I'm already bored.
