Things have been pretty gnarly at the office for, say the last 18 months. Who am I kidding? Its been ridiculous since January 2020! Then in January ’22 catching the Plague set me back further. Then I got the flu after that, making my previous setbacks even worse. But now things are REALLY heating up because next week I’m on long-awaited vacation! (More on that later.)

That is one of the biggest problems with (highly regulated!) 24/7/365 facilities…nothing, and I do mean NOTHING stops when you’re away. I’ve got a to-do list as long as my arm and 2 days left to get it done. And that’s the list walking in the door this morning, regardless of what I accomplish today, the list will be just as long or longer tomorrow. There is NO “finish line” here, just an eternal grind.

Thankfully I have the weekend to pack and get the dwelling in order, but sheesh!

My plans for the weekend!

This trip was supposed to happen last October, but due to restrictions from the aforementioned Plague, we had to postpone at the last minute and are just now finally getting to go. It’s even crazier to think we booked the trip in August of ’21, that is a loooong time to anticipate a trip!

The Mrs. and I are (belatedly) celebrating our 30th anniversary with this trip, so we’re planning to make it one to remember!

Don’t get me wrong, I am extremely excited to get outta town for a bit, I just miss the days of being able to take time off without having to work double before leaving, and triple upon the return!

All I’ve gotta do now is work like a maniac for the next 72 hours, and then I get to breathe easy! Wish me luck!

Same bro, same.

Thanks for reading!

    1. Thanks buddy! Part of me feels guilty and irresponsible for splurging, but 30 years of marriage deserves a celebration! And while I have had a few long weekends here and there, it’s been 15 years since my last “real” vacation. Thanks for checking in!
