The Light is On...

at the end of the tunnel, that is! 4AM Saturday will be my last time punch for the season. We're still waiting for Al's exit day, however...he is the last "pending" camperforce personnel waiting for for exit. They really like him here...for the third year in a row, they've asked him to if he can stay on longer! Unfortunately, we can't, again. Our jello plans are not that changeable.

There have been two very good parts to this year's Amazon season; the very good friends we've made while here this season, and the Single Toys "D" shift. Our managers up there (singles is on the second floor) were terrific, and the full time workers were the most friendly and helpful out of any department I've worked in the last three years. Guess where my request to work next season will be :-)??

We will be here in Campbellsville through the weekend. We have much to do; packing up most of our stuff into yet another u-haul, taking the truck and trailer to their storage are for the next two weeks, and getting it winterized. The trailer has a January 6 appointment at the factory for more repair work ( replacing the driver side wall that they forgot to do last spring being the main item) and I can't see driving it 700+ miles to Florida and turning around and going all the way back to Indiana. So it will wait here for us, and after our holiday with family we'll be heading back to the cold climes of Indiana for a week. I'd much rather stay where I can wear my flip flops, but you gotta do what you gotta do.

The next post will be coming to you hopefully from sunny Florida! Stay safe and have a wonderful holiday season!

Being festive in Campbellsvile!

  1. Yup, I hear you - we are READY too. We haven't gotten the phone call, so guess we have OT tomorrow, and then our last shift is Saturday. We hope to hit the road on Sunday if the weather isn't too bad.

    Love your festive lights - looking good!! :)
