Today, last but not least... in fact probally at the TOP of my list.
I am SO THANKFUL not to work RETAIL - ESPECIALLY TODAY!
My heart really goes out to all of those underpaid, retail managers, and employees who have to deal with crazy people at midnight, and can't even enjoy their wine at Thanksgiving any more because they have to go to WORK!
I remember having to work from 4am to 11pm ( or later ) many times in studios, labs and retail photography stores, salaried so no overtime, being the person everyone yelled at when something wasn't right, and oh yea lets not forget mandatory 7 day work weeks...
I learned a lot then.
Mostly, I learned that I don't care how good the deal is, how much I want something, or how much my family is driving me crazy, there is absolutely no reason to go out Thanksgiving Day, or Black Friday for ANYTHING... EVER.
Except maybe more wine.
So I am super thankful that I get to sleep in.
I get to spend time with my family.
I get to have thanksgiving leftovers and not cold pizza for lunch (if I got lunch)
and I am REALLY thankful that my business gives me the ability to unplug, and enjoy.
