How McDonald Stole Christmas

I thought we were headed to the middle school first thing this morning to scope out tomorrow’s cable run, but evidently Zach planned to do that in the afternoon. I mostly stayed low and cleaned up some old work orders before break. Several of us met up at Taco John’s for lunch, but even that was pretty quiet after the chaos from getting orders to the correct customers calmed down.

Right after lunch, we all met in the shop so Judy could train us on another new system for requesting time off. As soon as we finished with that, we all headed to the middle school to plan tomorrow’s work. It’s a big job, but hopefully it goes well with so many hands on deck.

After work, I went to Splash to check in with Summer. She had me run across the street to get some Zaxby’s for a couple of them. I guess I wasn’t paying close enough attention, because the curb reached up and grabbed the bottom of my front bumper when I parked. It was low enough that the scuffing was just on the very bottom of the car, so hopefully it won’t be visible in the daylight.

I probably stuck around longer than I should have, just because everyone was busy and I felt out of place. I ate a bunch of chicken though, and then headed home to change. The girls went bowling with their boyfriends, and then Autumn wanted to bring Adam over for a little bit afterward, so I beat them home. They watched The Santa Clause until Summer got home, and then I wound down pretty quickly from there.

I’m still stressing quite a bit about how this month’s superintendent is cracking down on holiday traditions within the school. It feels like she’s picking new and unnecessary battles with the few good staff members we have left, and I really don’t know how much fight I have in me. It may just be the bump I need to move on with my life.

Packed it up with their presents, their ribbons, their wrappings, their snoof and their fuzzles, their tringlers and trappings!
