busy season starts

Do you guys remember this store? I have never shopped here but I remember the good old days when I would go hangout at the mall and passed by this crazy place. Lucky for Brandon he got to spend the night here for his first inventory. From 5:00pm Monday night to 9:00am Tuesday morning Brandon was at the Olympia Hot Topic counting studded dog collars and Twilight paraphernalia! Talk about a good time. Poor guy was so tired by the time he got home he crashed until later that afternoon then woke up and started working again. I think this has been the worst part of busy season so far. Other than that I can't really complain. He has been home by 9:00pm everynight and hasn't had to work on weekends...I have been the one working Saturdays :( But now watch...I probably just jinxed myself and he won't come home until 11:00pm.

Gotta love busy season--we feel the pain. Good luck!

I guess auditors are learning from medical interns about the joys of saying up all night. Good luck to Brandon during these busy times.

Karen, what does Brandon do? I mean, what is his job? That sounds interesting to have to spend the night in hot topic!

My husband recently did a rotation in the ER and one night he was supposed to come home at 11 PM, but a trauma case came in and he got busy stitching up someone's face, so he didn't come home till 1 AM that night! :( Hang in there with those long hours!
