One More Week... Maybe...

I know we haven't posted much while here in Kansas.  Working at just doesn't seem to lend itself to blogging... at least for me.  Our weeks have consisted of work, chores, sleep...  Repeat.  Oh, and then we've both been sick, so on days off we haven't been out and about much.  Besides, since we were both here last year I think we exhausted the somewhat limited possibilities of the area.  lol

Late Friday we got an email telling us that while our original release date from is December 23rd we are being released on December 22nd without penalty.  That means we will finish our scheduled overtime shift on December 20 -- well actually at 3:30 am on December 21st -- and be done.  Maybe...  The maybe is that Amazon is considering having some workampers stay on after the season.  Kevin is consideing it if they continue to pay the lot rent.  Me?  Not so much.  If they do keep Kevin on I think I will stay in and get things organized and caught up from our months here.  We've been talking about a lot of things and need to make some arrangements.

We're planning to head to Maryville, MO to have Christmas with Kevin's kids and grandson the weekend before Christmas.  Then head back here for Christmas.  If Kevin is still working he will likely have to work on December 23rd.  If he's not working, we'll pack up and head out after Christmas.  

We still having shopping left to do, so we best get to it!

Hope your holidays are filled with love and laughter... oh, and lots of GREAT food!  lol

p.s.  Almost forgot the "important" news.  North Dakota State University will be playing for their 2nd Division I NCAA football championship in Frisco, Texas on January 5th.  Pretty sure we can't afford tickets and will be looking for an alumni group whereever we are to watch with...
