Yep, no party for me, I had to work New Year's Eve. Six Days-in-a-row due to last week's different days off schedule.
I did at least stop working for a minute at midnight to text "Happy New Year" to a few folks. Usually I can't get ahold of anyone that late because they're all sleeping... A few even texted back- but I had to keep working n phones aren't allowed on the production floor.
I celebrated today by sleeping late, n making Ghirardelli double chocolate brownies for a treat. They came out great- I'm waiting on errands another day.
I've decided I could never do my boss' job this week. All the local employers are laying off holiday help left n right before the New Year for the lowest business season here. Some PT folks were laid off until springtime at my job, n hours were all cut back a few for everyone. The atmosphere at work has been very oppressive all week.
A large snowstorm is forecast for Thursday n Friday here, so I'm betting there may be more missed hours as management rushes out orders for earlier delivery to go around it. If it's as bad as the news said, I might not go in for Friday. I'm in the 10 to 14 inches snow-zone it now says. Oy!
I'll just be really happy if the power stays on for the heat this time. Last year I went without heat two separate weeks, so I'm prepared n paranoid! The temps are diving to singles as this system exits. It'll make this December ice into a cake-walk...
I'm hoping the predictions are over-done. I'm due for a better year - We all are!
