Happy Boxing Day

Happy Boxing Day everyone! In case you don't know, which I didn't until Chris told me. Boxing Day is the day servants receive presents from their employers. I googled the interwebs and found out that it most likely originated in the Middle Ages when servants had to work on Christmas Day, but took the day after off. Their bosses would give them gift boxes before they left.

We just came home a couple of hours ago to a lot of phone messages from work. I'd apparently forgotten to put in my hours and my projected hours for the rest of the year so that they can calculate bonuses and whatnot. So I hurriedly did that even though I was two hours too late. I'll probably get a dock in my bonus for that, but there wasn't much I could do about it. I mean, I wasn't home to do it even if I knew about it earlier.

As for Christmas, it was mostly good, highlighted with many familial spats. No blood was drawn, so I count that was a successful family gathering. I hope you all had a wonderful holiday and if it wasn't, I hope it wasn't too horrible.

Good night and sleep well!
