I can feel it. My stomach is tight, and I have been grinding my teeth during
the night again. I can tell because my jaw aches. Best get a mouthgard.
When you are in retail, December is always full of anxiousness. More so
this year, with retail sales still gloomy. While everyone else is attending
holiday parties, cheerfully hanging tinsel on their tree, and wrapping gifts
while they listen to classic Christmas songs, I am monitoring our TV
commercial schedule, filling out gift card orders that I scoot to the airport
post office before last pick-up at 7 pm, and wishing I had time to make
I guess I could have done that in July. It's not like I don't know that
December is coming.
And I don't mean to grumble-it's just that Christmas loses some of it's glow
when you rely on it to keep you afloat.
But we may receive some good news this December, and if we do it will be a
very merry Christmas indeed. Send some positive retail thoughts our way
this month, won't you?
