WOW.....What a Christmas for Rex!!

I sure hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas and that Santa was good to you all.
3D Santa

We had to work Christmas Day but had different hours. I worked 2 to 10 but Rex had a 5 PM start. When I got home from work, I got my whole after work list done. I also had a Monk DVD that I started watching. It has four episodes on it.
So I am working through my list, seeing the episodes go by and realize oh, Rex should be home any minute. The minutes keep ticking by and I think oh he must have had to do some overtime. Finally, when it hit two hours past the time he should have been home, I put my clothes on, grabbed the cell phone, in case I had to call 911, and set out searching. Thankfully I got all the way to the AVI without seeing "Big Red" in the ditch . In fact "Big Red" was in the employee parking lot....I am very relieved. So now I am not sure if I should just go home or go into the casino to check on him. Maybe he just decided to have a Holiday drink with some co workers, I can't believe he is still working---three hours of OT at the AVI is unheard of. Then I think, if he is having holiday drinks, maybe a safe drive home would be a good idea.
To make a long story short, he was bent over the craps table dealing a "craps game from hell". Craps Poor guy, he never even saw me he was so busy. But my mind was at rest, knowing he was A-OK, so I went home.
That was Rex's Christmas....11 hours of work!!
