It`s better to remain silent and be thought a fool|
than to open one`s mouth and remove all doubt.
The truth is, everyone is going to hurt you.
You just got to find the ones worth suffering for.
It`s not the thoughts I have it`s the thoughts I act on
that makes me who I am.
| I'm choosing to be alone this Thanksgiving - Mood:Good|

|I work tonight and tomorrow and I get off at 7am Thanksgiving morning. My mom, her husband, and my sister are driving 5 hours north to my other sister's place at 8 am that day. I told them I'd think about it and I decided that I would rather be alone on Thursday so I can see my kids on Friday.|
Also, they are not starting back until 8 or 9 am Saturday and I have to be to work at 7 pm Saturday night. I don't want to take the chance that I'll have to call in to work, especially since David just got off medical leave. I don't want him to re-injure himself.
One more thing- They say I could sleep on the way up there but I wouldn't. The back seat of a Jeep with two women chatting away- not gonna happen.
In car news- I replaced the headlight switch and posted a video on Youtube and my blog. If you've got 42 minutes you need to kill click the link.

|I'm eating Tostitos original chips with Tostitos salsa con queso and even if you grab the biggest chip in the bag it will dip into the jar with 1 millimeter of clearance: no interruption in snacking pleasure.|
I bought two window control switches from ebay on a whim because they were only $10. I hoped I would get lucky and it would fix the driver's window. Well, they weren't compatible so I contacted the seller. They refunded my money and told me to keep the switches. Not every supplier from China is out to screw you I've learned.
I'm still pleased I got a 15% raise even though I think they owe me 20 because they only had to give me 5. My boss thinks it's because 15% puts me at the top of my pay grade but he's going to find out for sure.
Meeting me half way still counts as doing the right thing, right?

|because sleepy's book was really good. My favorite story was "Don't bring us back" That was the only one that gave me chills. The other 14 are all really good but that story rings true to me so I guess that's why it got to me.|
I took about a week to read the whole book because when I read short storys I like to let them sink in rather than go through them like popcorn.
I'm off tomorrow night. I didn't think I'd be off until Tuesday but I had emailed Jerry and told him I didn't need Saturday but if he wanted the overtime he could have it. He said "I guess I need to take it when I can get it."
So now I'm off 1 day, work 2 days, off two days, work 2 days then off for 3. It's going to feel like a vacation after 3 1/2 months of six 12 hour days a week.
