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. Well...now 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!
