Merry Christmas!

I'd like to wish everyone, everywhere a very Merry Christmas! I can't believe Christmas is already here. This year's a bit different, another year without my grandfather, and a year of not being with my aunts, uncles, cousins and other family. I definitely miss not opening the presents at midnight with all of them. But it's all good, we should be all together tomorrow. Anyway, it's one more week and it's gonna be the start of another year! Merry Christmas!

Busy December

It certainly has been a busy, hectic month for me. Just work, work and more work. I'm in the middle of working seven days in a row. I've been pooped but it's all good, it's keeping me busy. Anyway, I should have a few more posts by the end of the month and then off to a new start in 2010! Can't believe another year has passed!

Annual Helping Hands

On Saturday, I accompanied my mom at the annual Helping Hands event where we worked with Applied Materials, who my mom used to work for before she got laid off, and Second Harvest Food Bank to help pack food boxes for those who need it. We've done this for about 5 years or so and always love to do so. It is a great chance to help people. I also get to see how other people work and how they work with others. Some are great to work with and others not so much.
My experience at this one was a bit different, usually I was the one packing the cans of food into the boxes, but this year I stepped away from that, and I guess one reason was because of those who I was working around. Anyway, I volunteered to shrink wrap the pallets of boxes that came to the back area. I did get a good high from going 'round and 'round the pallets. It was certainly a great time and look forward to it next year.
