Day 31: Work treated us to dinner today for Christmas. It was actually pretty good, better than their Thanksgiving meal.

Day 364: I found the perfect ugly sweater for my ex-farmer husband

Day 365: This is the way the service desk is supposed to look every night. The only thing missing is the person who is supposed to be working here. Not sure what happened to her, but at least the desk looks good.

Day 354: Time for new nails again

Day 355: One of my co-workers bought lotion for all of us to use, since we’re getting into hand-sanitizer season and our hands are always dry. “Stress relief”. Maybe to relieve stress, we all just quit?

Day 356: Blizzard is back home with us for a while. I brought a treat home for him.

Day 357: The rain has turned into snow.

Day 358: Janelle gave me a hair cut and a new dye job. She chose the color. I suggested reddish brown. She chose red. I love it.

Day 348: I think somebody wants to play ball

Day 349: I don’t usually post any type of profanity or such, but this time I couldn’t help myself. This is what I found on the bathroom wall at work. Why do people find it necessary to do this? Regardless of your political views, this is not right and not the right way to get your message across.

Day 350: I got a new hoodie, in honor of the Brewers excellent season this year. Didn’t make the World Series, but they had a great year.
