Note to self...

I had enough take 'em or lose 'em vacation days saved up so that I should have been relaxing sans Peyton PHlaCe from December 16th through January 4th...

But NOOOOOOO, not me....

There is so much to do that I decided to try to work during the holiday season....

TRY is the keyword there...

If I do not work, it will be there when I get back....

On top of everything else that is coming due when I get back...

For me it is kind of hard to enjoy days off when I know work is just piling up....

And the FPMs will be breathing down my back about why I have not gotten this or that done...

But for the most part, I did stay away from the office and barely (try to keep your mind out of the gutter) worked from home...


Which helped a little....

Because for everyday I was there, I ate more cookies, candies, and other holiday treats that I did not need, and got yet more work from FPMs - because noone else is there to do it and ya know everything is a rush so they get their bonus...

But being at home, I just kept thinking that I should be relaxing and not worrying about whether this work gets done or not, because I am on vacation because if i do not take the days I lose them....

So I got like hardly any work done, except keeping up on emails and my laundry and getting ready for Christmas Eve and baking and cooking and getting ready for New Years Eve and shopping and.....

So what have I learned....

Next year, I will just take my F'ing vacation because I really need it....

Or...

Maybe I should find a job where someone else does your work while you're gone...

Like gas station attendant (she'll ring that up when she gets back...next year!!!)

Or librarian (just keep that book til she returns...next year!!!)

Or receptionist (please hold...still holding...you will be connected as soon as your party returns....next year!!!)
