All Work & No Play
I'm coming off a ten-day work stretch with one day off and then right back for five more days until my next full, two-day "weekend" (which happens to be Wednesday & Thursday for a couple weeks). I recently told a friend that being the assistant manager of a business that's open seven days a week - and where the manager takes weekends off, we're short-handed, all of us having to go to training in New Orleans, cover for coworkers who're gone to training / on vacation, etc - sometimes makes me wish I was a sabbatarian again!
Speaking of work, my big Swedish jerk of a neighbor put in his two-weeks and joined his family on vacation. Be sure to congratulate him, though, on his new job as a part-time FedEx Express driver!
I haven't mowed our lawn in over two weeks - I've either been working or it's been wet. Maybe I'll go buy a string trimmer tomorrow.
