While We Can

Coming off a week's vacation over the holiday, it may seem irrational to take another two days off the first week back. But that's exactly what I did. Yep, Thursday and Friday are me days. Being the work-a-holic I am it's rather difficult to do, so I've spent the past week justifying it to myself. And now you. 

It's the Type A personality in me that provoked it. While we had last week to move into our home, I didn't really have the opportunity to get us "settled"...so that's what I'm doing tomorrow and Friday. I also figure for every weekend and 16 hour day I worked November 12th through December 23th (nope, not bitter at all) I might deserve 16 additional hours to myself. 

And why not? There's no reason to feel guilty. I've done what I need to for the week, I have more vacation than I ever use, and the recruitment advertising world will not come to a standstill without me. 

Well, maybe, but they'll get over it come Monday. And I will be much more equipped to deal with it once our home is in order, and the bare walls no longer hanging over my head.
