I’ve always had a thing for silence

Woohoo! I’m working on Thanksgiving, the day after and that Saturday. And….I’m getting paid!!!! I was going to work at least that Friday for free. I’m only working half days. I don’t like work or money that much. I can’t remember the last time I got paid for overtime. Has it been a year? Maybe. Yes, that is why I’m so excited. 🙂 Like Ellie Goulding says, “Bitches gotta eat”.

My Thanksgiving plans consist of working and an epic cheat day. lol. Since I’m working, I’m not going to the movies. Going to the gym might still be on. The cheat day won’t be great unless I can find an open McDonalds. I haven’t had McDonalds since I started Nutrisystem in May. I hope I can find an open one. I’m willing to drive 10 minutes to find one. That’s my limit. I should be able to find at least 4 in 10 minutes.  The company claims some will be open for limited hours, but I have no idea what the limited hours are or which ones will be open.

I’m way too excited about a cheat day. I know. Hopefully, I’m having McDonalds breakfast w/coffee, pizza, and red velvet cake. That’s not everything, but that’s the cheating part. 😉

I know people say let people stay home on Thanksgiving. But some people need the money or some people don’t really celebrate. I fall into both. I don’t go to a family gathering on T-giving. Never have. And I write down what I’m grateful for daily weekly. .I don’t need a special holiday for this shit. Don’t get me started on Xmas. I won’t go there…As long as what people do doesn’t affect me then it isn’t my concern. I just hope everybody stays safe. Have a good time. etc. Some things still annoy me, though. Not going to lie.

Btw, I didn’t even know stores were open on Thanksgiving until recently when some stores were announcing that they were closed. I thought everything was closed that day. News to me. No stores for me…just McDonalds. Please. I need my fix.

In the meantime, I will be working like crazy during these next two weeks. I already put in my extra hours tonight (for free per usual).

Time to read and then watching college basketball. My kind of  evening.
