Veterans Day

I, for one, like the mid-week day off. In fact, if it ever comes to a vote I would definitely vote for a Wednesday off twice a month. Yes, I brought home paperwork, and yes, I actually plan to do work work and homework tomorrow. But, I'm going to do it at home in my jammies... it's almost like a free day. It isn't a weekend so I don't feel the need to cram in a bunch of fun. I feel the need to relax a bit and get some 'extra' work done.

I actually made myself a to-do list. It is twice as long as it needs to be, but I've given myself permission to pick and choose the couple of things that I WANT to do from it. I don't plan to complete it, but I plan to cross off a couple of things... things that I feel like doing.

But tonight... tonight I'm going to fully enjoy the fact that I have tomorrow off. Curled up on the couch with hot apple cider (spiked with rum), CSB busy in the kitchen (yes, I should be helping), Sinatra on the radio, and nothing better to do than enjoy the evening.

By the way: a hearty thank you to all the vets out there. Not just for the day off, but for the commitment they have made. Many times, those who are under-appreciated are the ones that do the most difficult jobs. One of my all time favorite Futurama quotes comes to mind: "When you do things right, people won't be sure you've done anything at all."
