A few weeks ago, I looked at my employee account at work and realized I had 22 vacation days to use... or lose... by the year's end.
Um, wow! And yikes?!
So I set out taking 3 day weekends. This weekend will mark my third 3-day weekend in a row!
So, 3 days down... 19 to go?
I guess I have a few more long weekends coming in November, too!
I'm loving this time off. I get so wrapped up in my work and in life in general- and it's so refreshing, relaxing, restful to just have 3 whole days to run errands. Or sit on the couch and do nothing. Or take lots of naps. My favorite is going to Starbucks Friday morning- at 9:30 or 10, after I've slept in, of course- when I should be at work.
But I'm not. I'm at Starbucks with no where to go. Such a rebel.
This long weekend will be the last for a few weeks. And a crazy few weeks it will be until my next long weekend. I will be working non-stop... including Saturdays & Sundays.
So I really need to make this one count.
I think I'll go back to River City and claim this bench I saw last weekend.
And maybe I'll make this apple cinnamon coffee cake Friday morning. At 10am, of course, when I have that sneaky feeling of skipping class.
Ah, long weekends. What's your favorite way to unwind?
