Wow, this year seems to have just flown by. I know as we age it seems that way every year, but for some reason this one really seems to have flown by. There have been some challenges to deal with this year, but not as much as we have had to in the past so all is good. As a lot of you know, I started working a seasonal job in the coat check room at our small local casino. The winter has been so mild that it has not worked out quite like I had hoped it would as there were several days when I went home early due to no work, but now it is finally getting cold enough for people to leave their coats. Part of our pay is dependent on tips. Some customers don't tip at all whereas others tip very well as it all evens out in the long run. You start to see the same people coming in several days a week and a lot of them make sure to stop & say hello even if they are not leaving their coat with me. One even gave me a hug & wished me a Merry Christmas. Plus I really like the people I work with.
I want to wish all of my QWU friends a very safe and happy New Year. We are staying home tonight. Will probably play some sort of board game with the grandsons in the hopes of making it until the ball drops at midnight.
