This week, I wind up getting snowed in thanks to Winter Storm Stella.
‘Tis the morning of Christmas and all through the web, I am here posting my latest blog. After all the aggravation I had to endure at work over the last month, it is nice to finally get a three-day Christmas weekend from work.
So far for Christmas, I got a new digital coffee maker from my sister and my brother-in-law. I’m supposed to get some more stuff from my folks when they get here. They’re supposed to be here a little earlier today because the weather is calling for sleet and freezing rain, hardly what one would call a “white Christmas.” We haven’t had a white Christmas up here in quite a while. I do remember my first Christmas in Central New York in which we had a really big blizzard.
As far as the sleet goes, it is supposed to be really bad tonight into tomorrow morning. As of right now, I am not sure if I am going down to my brother’s house tomorrow yet being that travel conditions will be extremely difficult. I was originally planning to go tomorrow, but now I am not sure. I was also hoping to get some footage from the Hudson Valley to show my peeps where I came from and how much the area has changed in the several years since I was last down there. So we’ll have to see.
Right now I am sitting here watching “A Christmas Story” on DVD. That movie never gets old. With all the 24/7 showings that movie gets every year on cable, no wonder that movie was named the greatest Christmas movie of all time. And with that, I guess I better get back to celebrating the holidays. If I get any more updates, I am sure that I will be posting them on here.
Until then… Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night.
It is absolutely amazing. This year went by so fast. I can’t believe that New Year’s is only three days away. I’m sorry that I haven’t been here so much the last couple of weeks. It’s just that I have been really busy with things, both online as well as at work, especially with the Christmas shoppers at work. And over the holiday, I ended up with a three-day weekend off from the ‘Net. I spent Christmas Eve sleeping and Christmas Day working on my book until it was time to go to work. Yes, I did work on Christmas night, but the store didn’t open until the following morning.
Last weekend was Christmas for my brother-in-law’s kids in which I gave them all gift cards. This weekend is the grown-up’s Christmas. Anyway, I ended up doing some last-minute shopping this morning before coming in to go online. I also have another three-day weekend from the ‘Net to look forward to because of New Year’s. However, I still do have to work both days. I won’t be back online until Wednesday and by then it will be a new year: 2008.
As I have mentioned before, this year has been really crazy. It started off pretty much with me getting attacked at work by some customer with a baseball bat. That story is still not over yet, but he is still in jail, now awaiting sentencing, which won’t be until February. Then in March, I officially opened this site and ended my Yahoo site after that. I also created my “Cat A Day” site back in August. And if that isn’t the icing on the cake, I found that my online popularity had been increasing significantly. Just think, pretty soon I’ll be another Internet success story and who knows where that will lead.
I also have a book that I am working on, which is still not completed yet although it is pretty close. I started it last December, but was preempted because of the Valentine’s Day blizzard and then my assault at work. I didn’t get back on track with that until the summer. Now I am pretty close to the end. Hopefully within the next month or so, I will be ready to submit it to a publisher.
And so I must close the first year of this site by thanking those of you who have supported me throughout the course of this site and hopefully you will continue to stick around because hopefully, the best is yet to come.
