No real reference to dogs in this post – other than the fact that I’ve been working like one.
I’ve wanted to blog and not only have I not found time to, I haven’t even been writing in my head before I commit it to
paper screen. That is usually my M.O.
The job is getting me up to that 50% travel time they mentioned when I started. But until the last month or so, I’ve really been at maybe 30%. After T-giving, I’ll be gone at least 50% until the December holidays. I think the opportunity for a vacation has passed us by – again.
Ruckiry (not Jon’s boss), my vacation time rolls over for a year – though I don’t know if it is a rolling year or a calendar year. I guess I should find out. My personal days I lose at the end of the calendar year, so I’m already planning on taking those. One of them is in two weeks!!! The other will be right before the holidays to extend my already long weekend….and to prep for the holiday party/dinner we have been hosting for the last few years.
I really don’t know what to do about the party or dinner. We now have the flatware to host more folks – but still are lacking a good table to get too many folks around. So, that leaves us open (again) to the possibility of just doing casual stuff where folks load their plates and mingle.
Getting drunk is really a prerequisite. I almost insist on it. Most people who attend don’t really have to be talked into it…..though at least half of them will be our house guests, so no driving for them.
There is absolutely no religious significance to the holidays for me, I’m in it for the cookies and the booze.
