Life 101

It sucks when work gets in the way of life. Shana got a job a few months ago to help out with the fun money fund. It's a great place and they adore her and she only works on Saturdays, 10 - 3, perfect. The only problem is that it's a toy store and, of course, it's Christmas. Last week she found out that she had to go back to Tucson on 12/26 to work, no exceptions, busy day, we need you. Since I hate when life gets interrupted, I told her I would get up early and ride down with her, putz around Tucson while she works, bring her some sushi for lunch, have a fun trip back to Phoenix. Then today her attempts to get out of working this Saturday fell through. Nobody could cover. So instead of heading home Friday at 9am right after her last final, the poor kid has to wait another day to get started on her vacation. We worked through the whining. Mmmoooommmm! I want to come home! I'm losing money on this deal. It's not fair. Then she took a deep breath, accepted it and said, "see you Saturday." Ohh. Lessons. Lessons.
