Ha, not really... but that's what it feels like in order to take vacation time! I admit that I'm a workaholic. It's so bad that when I announce that I'm taking a few days off - the first reaction of people is "what's wrong?".
Last year was an all-time low. I "gave back" a week of vacation to my company - so in addition to all the extra hours I work for free; I essentially paid them for my attendance too!
My New Year's resolution was to work less. Unfortunately - I don't think that I've made any headway on achieving that.
However, I am off today (and tomorrow!); and it feels GREAT!! I went out to lunch with my cousin Kirstren then ran a bunch of errands. Sure, it sounds kind of mundane... but Kirstren is a blast to hang with! Plus being out in daylight on a weekday is a foreign and exciting concept to me. JC needs tons of stuff, so all this afternoon's errands focused on what I can pack up and ship back to him. Hopefully, I can time it right and have the packages arrive the day after he settles back into his FOB.
That's all... Now I'm off to walk the puppers around the block. :-)
