P-Mag is back! Finding out I would be the first post of the new year felt like kind of an honor. Our winter break felt longer than it was. I think this perception is due to my work being overloaded during the holiday season. Working in the retail business is no cakewalk during the holiday season. I spent most of my work days up and down ladders, putting red signs everywhere, moving lights around, and telling customers, “Sorry we don’t have any more tree stands.” Seriously, my work got shorted on tree stands this year and everyone was sad. That was the not fun part.
The fun part included buying lots of presents for my wife. Her birthday is December 19th. So between that and Christmas, I overspent on her. I know I hit my 30s when picking out and giving the best gifts is a ton more fun than receiving. Truly, the best part though was having a holiday season where my presents I got were actually awesome. Being able to finish 2013 as myself really itself is an amazing gift.
How did you out there in P-Mag land spend your holiday break? Did you eat a lot of awesome food? Did you drink eggnog like it was going out of style? I hope none of our dear readers were taken away by the Krampus. That would give me a sad.
Happy New Year everyone!Related
