Up mid-morning and walked to work again. My job today was basically to take care of the day's shipment while the owner and manager dealt with the crowds of customers. There was some drama involved in this: we had one box show up after being missing for nearly two weeks, and one of our expected boxes didn't arrive. I spent a good bit of time on the phone with our distributor dealing with this, and then I spent some more time calling people who had special orders in the box that didn't arrive to tell them that the Christmas presents that they had planned to give tomorrow wouldn't be arriving until next Tuesday. Thankfully, they were all pretty understanding. Then I finally had a chance to unpack the boxes we did get and call a lot of people about the special orders that did arrive. I was there for less than two hours (11:00 AM to 12:45 PM), but it felt like a full shift.
In any case, I walked home afterwards, and once I was home I spent some time online and the took a nice nap. I spent the early evening reading cartoon collections to unwind (it worked), and I also did some dishes just because. queenmomcat and I ended up going out to dinner, which is becoming a Christmas Eve tradition for us, and now we're back home and ready to go to bed. Tomorrow will be a very low-key Christmas, but that's kind of what we need right now. It's been quite the year.
