Last week I took a couple of days off of work, and when tied in with our office being closed on 7/3 in observation of Independence Day, I had 6 days off in a row… though I did go in to work for a little bit on Friday… and Saturday… because I’m SO bad at being off (or preparing to be off)! Nevertheless, it was nice to get some time away from it all.
It was supposed to be a vacation, but ended up being a staycation. I like to think (though sometimes find it hard to believe) that everything happens for a reason, so maybe our plans getting foiled was a blessing in disguise.
And then, when I went back into work on Thursday I had an epiphany. I realized that that was the way to do time off: come back on a Thursday and only have two days before the weekend! Friday Eve (as my bestie and I like to call it) and Friday!
It made coming back to 200 emails to sift through that much more bearable.
All that being said, it still felt like the longest short week ever lol…
