I'd Rather Be......

This is the time of year that business is really slow where I work. Most people are not building a house in the middle of winter or shopping for a new toilet as a Christmas present for Aunt Sarah. So, while I'm doing "busy" work or waiting for a customer to come in, I spend way too much time thinking of all the other things I could be doing if I weren't at work. Thirteen of them follow. The first ten I could really be doing. The last three, while not realistic, are fun to dream about.
  1. Playing with my granddaughter.
  2. Finishing the Christmas decorating.
  3. Wrapping Christmas presents.
  4. Addressing Christmas cards.
  5. Shoveling the snow off the sidewalk.
  6. Taking a hot bubble bath.
  7. Building a fire in the fireplace.
  8. Reading a book by the toasty warm fire.
  9. Toasting marshmallows in the fire.
  10. Making Christmas candy.
  11. Catching a plane to New York to see the Christmas tree in Rockefeller Center.

  12. 12. Catching a plane to Hawaii for a Mele Kalikimaka

  13. Catching a plane to visit Bethlehem at Christmas time.

Oh man, it's driving me nuts now- what movie had the song " Mele Kalikimaka is the thing to say" in (I think) Bing Crosby's voice? I miss snow, at least new snow on days that you don't have to go anywhere and can curl up in your pajamas and drink cocoa and read, wrapped up in a blanket....ahhh, kind of what you would do if you weren't at work. What is it that you do? Sounds sort of home improvement-y...

Hi Johanna, I am a kitchen and bath designer/salesperson. Granite tops and cabinets to toilets and water heaters and everything in between.

I can't remember which movie that is from but now it's driving me nuts too!

I'm impressed you knew that Hawaiian phrase. I just heard where that phrase is sung the day before yesterday ... can't remember. I would like to see Bethlehem, too. PS: Don't you love Johanna. (Pssst: she has chickens!)
