Seriously folks, I need a mini vacation. Three days--one day of lounging around, one day of cleaning the house top-to-bottom, and one more day of lounging around. I have almost 100 hours of paid time off saved up...I should just do it, but I just don't know. Even though this is FAR down the line, a part of me wants to save up the maximum since my office doesn't offer paid maternity leave...we're expected to use PTO for that. Besides, I'll be getting a bit of a vacation in August (5 days off)...can I hold off til then? Will my sanity stay in check?
Starting in June, I'm bumping up hours, now working 8:30-3:30 every day, instead of my usual longer Tuesday-Friday days. Part of me is seriously going to miss having a 3 day weekend every week. I'm trying to remind myself that this is a BLESSING because I'll be bringing in some more much needed money, AND I'll be home early enough to cook dinner every night. But, I can't help but feel like other things (i.e. keeping our house clean) are going to fall to pieces. I can hardly maintain it right now, even with sweet Justin's help. Yeah, we have NO clean glasses or forks right now. Why? Because I haven't done the dishes all week. We haven't been home.
If nothing else, I think I want to declare this Saturday "Go NO WHERE" day. Except for maybe Dairy Queen.
