My work schedule here at the paper is a little eccentric. Alternating weekends, off Mondays and Wednesdays, etc. Sometimes I work five or six days a week, sometimes four, it just kinda depends.

Well, this week, I'm scheduled off for the weekend, Monday, and Wednesday. Just kind of on a lark, I mentioned to my boss taking Tuesday off and having five days in a row. She told me to call our spare clerk (a retired lady who works once in a while just for the hell of it, mostly), and see if she could cover.

I did, she can. So...I have the next FIVE DAYS OFF. I haven't had five days off in a row for like, four years, and the one time I did it involved a two-day train trip to visit a friend, where we took a long car trip to a tourist spot for her birthday, then another two-day train trip for me back home.

So I think I can officially say this is my first me-vacation since I started working at the paper.

...I don't know what to do with myself already! :lol:

Congrats! :grats:

Books. Bubble baths. Books AND bubble baths. Movies. Take out. Wine. Take out AND wine.

No: Network news. Local News. Talk shows. "Catching up" on housework. (Except as needed today to make the five days more relaxing.) Correspondence. Slack a bit on the net. ACTUALLY say to yourself 'What is the most self-indulgent thing I could do right now?' and do it. Then when you're done, ask again. :)

[I "mini-vacation" a LOT. :)]

Congrats! These are the best. Especially on your first day of vacation, look at the clock and say to yourself "I'm supposed to be at work....AND I'M NOT!:devil:"
