I was reading on Hobby Lobby's facebook page last summer when they were already putting Christmas items out in late June, probably only 1 or 2 aisles then. There were so many people ranting over it and telling Hobby Lobby they will never shop in their store again. Umm... You don't HAVE to walk down those aisles!!! Hobby Lobby is a HUGE store and it's real easy to ignore the Christmas aisles if they bother you and just keep moving. Why on earth would you stop shopping at a store just because of Christmas items. You would think they were stocking the shelves with highly offensive stuff. I never realized Santa, snowmen and reindeer were so offensive!
I just don't get it!

We have some customers that shop in the store that must be offended by soap and toothpaste. I am sure they stay away from those aisles because they stink! unfortunately it really seems that way

That's right, I am still waiting, and my patience is wearing thin to the point that I am starting to think about looking for another job. I really don't want to do that, having to start all over at another job, especially at my age.
I hope things work out for you soon, you have been more than patient waiting for them to move you.

Good morning,

It is Wednesday, and it is the 27th so it is my night shift and inventory night. Don't want to go like usual.

Made my run to the Goodwill store after dropping LC off at preschool, there was a Santa Claus lamp there but I have no place for it to go so I didn't buy it. I was racking my brain trying to think of a possible place to put it during the holidays and I couldn't do it. So I will let someone else love it.

I must start getting ready.

The forecast calls for heavy snow to hit Ottawa today. We are in for about close to 20 cms of the white stuff. 8 inches. It could be worse! The good news is that our daily highs for the long range forecast are hovering right around the freezing mark. Indeed, March is nearly here.

There is not much new today. I hope everyone is enjoying their final days of February. Time to celebrate at the 'Pines!

Take care. When you are not able to be here, the light is a little dimmer!

Have a great day everyone!

That sounds like a cool lamp!! I applaud you for your restraint.

I've always wanted a full size leg lamp...someday! =]
...I compromised with a leg lamp night light!

Hope you have an unexpected & wonderful day!
