Our offices are officially open on the 5th, and all of my staffers wanted long weekends, so I'm staying behind to hold down the fort and accept all those down-to-the-wire submittals for our next Plan Commission meeting.
Damn! Everyone in my office is off except me and the building inspector. I didn't get my time off request in early enough, so I will get to sit around and attempt to work while many people are enjoying thier long weekend. It sucks! Nobody comes in on the 5th of July and not much work gets done, so why not give us workers a break? They do it for Thanksgiving.
Like Tranplanner, just had my long weekend, with an extra day at the end....I needed it. We sent out 8100 surveys about 3 weeks ago and I am compiling the results. Luckily, or unluckily, only about 500 people have responding so far...despite the fabulous weekend get-away prize draw!....
As for puppy day-care, it's the best thing since sliced bread. Maggie was finding the house a little lonely, and tasty (esp. the window frames), while we were at work so now she is spoiled with 3 days a week at daycare where she gets to play all day. By the time she gets home she is so exhausted she can barely keep her head up. A much happier dog!
I'll be at Crescent Lake, at around 5000 feet. Great fishing, boating, hiking... you name it.
I had to go up last night to get a good site, and stayed until 4:30 a.m., then drove back down the mountain to shower and come to work! I suspect I'll be sneaking out a tad early to get back up there. Can you blame me?
1. LOVE the doggie daycare. Once, while living in SC, I left Parker in doggie daycare while I went home to NY. When I went to pick her up, she didn't even want to come with me - and then she was SO exhausted that night from chasing the 8 other dogs around.
2. We're going to Narangansett, RI. Three days of deep sea fishing, squid fishing, clam digging, horse shoes and all you can eat sea food. yum!
I'll be working. The higher ups have already taken the day off and someone has to be here in full office drag -- tie and no sneakers. And it's hot around here! Oh well if I had the day off I'd only have to work on the house.
All of the government offices are closed on Friday - state and local. It doesn't mean squat to us poor private sector employees but after the boss granted everyone who requested Friday off - all but one person - he decided to close the office. Unfortunately, we are still forced to use our vacation time. Oh well, c'est la vie
