So usually by this time in the year I have finished one weekend of Christmas installs and am gearing up for a whole week and weekend of late nights, exhausting work and torn up hands. I also get to spend the time with one of my favorite people making it all worth it. This year however I was unable to do any of my installs. Even though we had moved I had intended to fly back for the week but a 14 lb person made this impossible. With Hailey not taking a bottle, my leaving was not an option. I made the call to tell Kayla and apologized profusely. She understood (or at least pretended to) and I promised to be there next year. Then it started to set in. I didn't have to work this year! It is my first year off in 14 years. I could sleep in the weekend after Thanksgiving instead of leaving at first light. I could go and do fun things with my family instead of missing out. As much as I have enjoyed doing installs over the years I am going to take this break and enjoy every minute of it. Until next year Kayla!
