And hopefully today will be better than yesterday – it was one of those days where everything took 3x as long as it should have. Here’s hoping today isn’t filled with, “Fuck, I have to do that again” and/or “Why is this so slow?”
I’m getting oddly excited about my week off. 1 day, 10 hours, 16 minutes! While I’m getting better about taking a long weekend here and there just for the sake of having a long weekend, I honestly can’t remember the last time I took extended time off without a *reason* so it’s a little weird.
But, I’ve decided that since I can’t eat my way through Williamsburg next week, one night we are getting Outback takeout – sure, it’s not welsh rabbit with a rasher of ham and a big mug of Old Stitch in the taverns, but it’s a treat.
I’d say it’s a damning testament to capitalism that I’ve always felt very weird taking a day off and just puttering around the house vs “having a specific thing to do with the vacation time to justify taking the vacation time” since well, I started working near 30 years ago. Though, this is the first place I’ve had “use or lose” vacation – everywhere else, it either rolled over or got cashed out. And dammit, I’m not going to lose this vacation time.
And I’m thinking I may be able to get the Christmas wreath cross stitch done next week since I’ll have a ton of time to work on it. Yesterday was a lot of greens:
Welp, time to go to do thing to earn the PTO to use and not go anywhere.
Happy Friday Eve to you!
