On Friday, I sat at my desk at work and had a revelation:
"If I am sitting at this desk next Friday, the day after Thanksgiving, instead of being home with Bart, putting up the Christmas decorations and listening to Josh Groban's new CD, I will be beyond depressed."
And so I filled out the vacation request form (for my very last alloted day of the year) and placed it on my boss' desk.
I am so so glad I did. The Fourth of July was on a Wednesday this year (public service announcement!) and I loathed having to go back to work the next day. It's almost worse to have a single day off in the middle of the week than just work straight through. Am I right? (I so am).
I was already looking forward to Thanksgiving, but now I am almost uncontrollably excited for this long, fun weekend.
Now if only Josh Groban's CD will arrive BEFORE next Saturday.
