Another Friday means another weekend means some people don't have to go to work but others do and THEIR weekend might be Tuesday and Wednesday or maybe Monday and Tuesday or maybe Tuesday and Thursday

which would be really messed up because I would hate not having a 2 day weekend which I normally don't have anyway because something always comes up on Saturday or Sunday requiring my attention but that's life. But the weekend is upon (some of) us and so far I don't have anything I absolutely have to do, other than the usual things, which revolve around tending to Scar's every whim and want/need. But in between I shall be here and there and maybe even there but I kinda doubt I'll go there because let's face it, going there usually leads to madness and mayhem. And I like M & M's, but not those two. Meanwhile, Thanksgiving is closing in on us...less than a week to go...and I am thankful that one of my sisters is having the family free-for-all at her house, because I don't think I could get my house straightened out enough in time to have it here. Plus Scar would probably veto that idea anyway. Thankfully.

@NJChicaa Last week they screwed us by forgetting to come by and pick up the outgoing shipments. I came in the next morning and they were still sitting on the floor at the shop waiting. Of course Boss had to create new labels for two that were supposed to ship second-day air and change them to overnight delivery. Over $100 more per package...UPS is supposed to reimburse us the difference, but it takes them forever.

I have the weekend off, if you can call it being off that is. I will be busy cooking and baking, plus doing the housework. Truly need a maid. Thanksgiving will be a day of work for me. Thankfully I only have one client for 2 hours. That will give me time to prepare our meal and enjoy the day. My daughter will be here to help prepare the meal and watch keep the overactive 2 year old out of my hair. I will let her help me with the biscuits. She does like to help cook with her grammy. Our younger cat doesn't mind having extra people in the house. More people means more chances she can finagle a treat or two out of someone.

Scar gets weird around people...he wants to check them out, but he really doesn't want them touching him until he has decided what he thinks, and of course as soon as he walks up to start checking them out they try to pet him so he jumps out of their reach and starts staring at them. My baby sister Sheri is making turkey and potatoes and dressing/stuffing, my brother Steve and his wife are bringing a ham, I've been designated to supply rolls, others will bring desserts/green bean casserole/mac & cheese/whatever...usually ends up as quite the feast.

I usually find that at weekends by the time I've done everything I have to do there is little time left for doing things I want to do. I need a 3 day weekend at least. In fact I think we should reverse the week and work for 2 days and have a 5 day weekend.
