Fast Lane

So, tomorrow is Thanksgiving! Somehow, this year, it doesn't have the appeal that it has had in the past. I am trying to figure out why. I know the food will definitely be as good as it ever was. I will still be with my family although my grandparents are celebrating together in heaven. Perhaps it is because it seems to have come up so quickly.
This week has been unusually hectic. I recently hired 4 more people to work at the jail and of course, for some reason I decided to start training 2 of them the week of Thanksgiving. Smart! Not to mention we are re-opening the booking area in the jail as it was just recently renovated so we are extremely busy buying/setting up/programming all new equipment for that area. Pretty much everything that could go wrong has gone wrong. Two of the people I hired started this Monday and I have been training them only to find out that the Department of Corrections won't even inspect the new area until December. Yikes! So I am scrambling to find places for these 4 new people to "hang" until their places are ready in the newly renovated area.
To top it all off, Jay has to work tomorrow. I am hoping most people forget to put out their trash before they leave for their Thanksgiving day trip. That way he can get back to our house and cleaned up so we can get together with family before the afternoon is totally gone. Unlike years past, I am working the day following Thanksgiving. I am not a shopper so all the sales usually don't entice me but of course this year, I wouldn't mind going with my sister, but I volunteered to work since I knew Jay was working. Sigh!
