Funeral vacation

Wednesday, April 24, 2013

I took off Monday this week. While I enjoyed having the day off, it wasn't for the 'best' reason. I had a funeral to attend. On Tuesday I posted that I had enjoyed my day off and needed to plan some more time off. I have another funeral to attend tomorrow (and thus another day off). Somehow that's not exactly what I had in mind. Sigh.

I do really need to plan some time off. (Please Lord, no more funerals!) I have time saved up, though I could save more. When Bob was alive, before he got sick, it was a constant struggle. I would take time off when we went on vacation, but I was always looking to save up my time. (And was I ever glad I had it when I needed it). Now, I'm having a hard time justifying taking any time off, when I don't have a 'vacation' or some other real purpose planned. But I realize I physically need some time off. I am bizarrely whacked-I know!

So I'm off tomorrow to attend another funeral. A wonderful lady that left us WAY too early (64). She was my first district manager at the old job. She supported and promoted me. She was a champion for me. Even though I was not close to her recently, I will miss her. The world is a bit colder for her absence.

I will get to spend some time with my former co-workers tomorrow, which will be good. I'll have a chance to see more of Colin tomorrow - we've got a date to go to a lacrosse game and dinner in the evening. Hopefully I'll get a chance for a run (or at least a walk) tomorrow afternoon. And I'll get to sleep a bit late-always a bonus. But a real day off? Not really. I'll have to work on that one...

Oh, and in case you're wondering - I fought the good fight and won on the lunch hour today. Hauled my butt down to the gym and worked out!

    Good for you getting in your lunch workout yesterday. Have a nice 'date' with Colin. I've been thinking of taking a day off too, but like you I feel like I need to save my time for a rainy day. emoticon

    SO, take off a day and come to my neck of the woods. Sure we can find some mischief to get into emoticon
