So as you might know, I don't really take vacations or time off. However, I'm not going to work this week. And I took off extra time last week--spur of the moment.
No, really--my manager and I were talking about how there was nothing to do and he was taking off Wednesday to clean and I said that I would take off then too. And I was already taking off Thursday because there was little to do and had Friday off, and all this week. I have a lot of time banked, and it accumulates year to year. So why not? Wednesday I did my Christmas shopping, Thursday I tried to clean, Friday and Saturday I spent with family, and yesterday I rested.
Today as soon as it's acceptable to do so (not 6 am!) I am vacuuming and then I am going up to Camelback to go looking.
Tomorrow we might go to Globe, and Wednesday is my birthday. Feel free to make other suggestions of things to do.
