I currently don't have a working vacuum and the weather this week has kept me from getting to the repair shop...No vacuum during the holidays.....Uggh. I resorted to using the shop vacuum. I was not totally effective.
We will be doing Thanksgiving with DD2 on Wednesday since it is her day off and she is working Thanksgiving. She works and I worked in an environment where we had to work many holidays. I never really minded as we could usually choose the hours we wanted and got really good holiday pay for the time. As a mom with grown kids and her as a single it seemed worth it. I am not really sure what the fuss is. In many careers folks often have to work the holidays, there is usually a trade off of some kind. We were still able to have the family time. Post like this are all over my Facebook. I think these folks might be a little sanctimonious!
I wanted to post this in answer. I wish we were able to just say thank you. Why can't we celebrate the way we want to and respond positively to make others feelings appreciated and well wished as well without making a fuss.
