My manager then went on to tell me that he always puts his kids first, before his wife. At that point my other coworker, who's also married, chimes in and disagrees with my manager's method of always putting his kids before his wife. He said that you shouldn't just neglect your wife just because you have kids... and I couldn't agree more. The parents are the foundation of the family, the stronger your relationship with your spouse, the stronger your family will be. Without happy parents, how can you create a positive and happy home? It's always disheartening to hear about couples neglecting each other after they get married or after they have a family. It really shouldn't be that way, and it needn't be! Never forget the person you chose to share your life with. It's as simple as that!
So the night that I helped out with the Christmas party my workplace was hosting for their clients, I ended up working a 14 hour shift. It was my first time serving food and it was kind of interesting being on the other side (since I'm always the patron at restaurants). Along with serving appetizers, I cleared people's plates and I helped out with wiping and drying cutlery and plates.
Surprisingly I didn't pick anything up, but maybe some other time. They had a few things I would love to look at again. This would be a great place to visit if you want to get a unique gift for someone.
p.s. The Mister and I are in the midst of buying a car (dun dun dun!!). We've been searching and searching for a couple of weeks and I think we've finally found one we really like. Tomorrow we'll know for sure after the Mister has a chance to talk to the guy about our options. I'll update you guys on it later (by then I might even have the car already!). Let's hope for the best.
