Black Friday Casualty

First off lets start off with a couple of definitions:

What Does Black Friday Mean?
The day after Thanksgiving in the United States. Retailers generally see an upward spike in sales and consider this to be the start of the holiday shopping season. It's common for retailers to offer special promotions and to open early to draw in customers. 

Casualty:  a person who is killed or injured in a war or disaster (or in this case Black Friday.)

Christmas Shopping Time

Well it's that time of the year again.  You know what I'm talking the turkey and try to get a little sleep before going out to be one of those crazed maniacs out there on Black Friday.   Yes I admit I am one of those people.  You'd think there would be a 10 step program for those of us but when you have 3 kids you almost have to do it just to save money.  So now it is the time to do your homework.

Hazards of the job

You may or may not know but I am a dispatcher for the local Sheriff's Department here.  I hold the coveted title of "senior dispatcher."  No there is no glory or even raise with this title it just means that I've put up with the crap longer than the other dispatchers and so I get the good shift.  We are out here in pretty rural and we have over 900 square miles of county that we cover.  In this county I not only dispatch for the deputies but for 3 small towns with their PD's, EMS & Fire Dept and 2 other even smaller fire departments.

Happy Birthday dear daughter

Well today would be my daughter's 17th birthday.  At age 36 I feel old to say that I have a 17 yr old daughter.  Jada passed away when she was 4 just three months shy of her 5th birthday.  For those who don't know let me give you a little background.

"Maintaining sanity" is something probably easier said than done, more so when you have MS. I've had it now for years and even though most days are ok there are days when you do all you can do and still don't seem to be able to maintain your sanity.
