Starting at 10:30 this evening I am officially on vacation for the next two weeks.
I even stopped and counted off the last five seconds before I walked out the door. That felt good.
And I used the fact that I was going on vacation to keep a couple of the offenders in line. Twice I had to go out and have words with some of them who were acting up.
I'd glance at my watch and say "In a couple of hours I am going on vacation. If I have to stay late and do paperwork over locking you knuckleheads up, I am going to be really really really pissed off. Is that what you want?"
And both times they looked down at the ground and said "No Sir. Sorry, Sir."
Hey, whatever works, right?
Since the wife couldn't get the same time off and we don't have any money anyway, I'm just staying right here for a stay at home vacation.
The only reason I am taking one at all is because I have too much time on the books and if I don't use some of it by October, the state will take it away from me. And I'm not about to let that happen. Not willingly, anyway.
Besides, I think I could really use the break. My shop is half covered with unfinished projects and there are a few on the floor of my office as well. Time to get some of those things done.
I will endeavor to post something here every day. Maybe an old war story or a bad joke of just something silly I found on the internet.
Aaaaahhhhh........ I feel better already.
