Some Vacation

Normally Todd and I take two weeks off for vacation, but because I’ve just started a new job two months ago I just do not have enough vacation time accrued to be able to take two. Todd decided that he’d take this week off and then we’d take next week off together.

Let me tell you about Todd’s vacation so far.

Monday I came home to Todd and one of his co-workers geeking out in our office. He did manage to stay home that day, but he worked remotely as he had a client experience a problem that required his immediate attention. Then he and this co-worker were crowded around the computer scheming about something work related. Though I am thankful that during the day he did manage to get a few honey-do’s done. He took the trash to the dump that couldn’t get picked up curbside. (It's been piling up for awhile now, and was starting to bug the both of us, but we couldn't seem to get it together to bring it to the dump. Oh, and how ridiculous is it that the dump here in Podunk, RI isn’t open on Saturdays? It’s only open 6 AM-3PM on weekdays. Insane!) He also built a scuba gear washing station that’s under the deck, just outside the walk out basement door and washed our gear from our dive on Sunday. Then he fixed the ceiling fan in our bedroom, and we are now enjoying the fact that we don’t have to unscrew the light bulbs on the fixture so we can run the fan while we sleep. Really, it’s the simple pleasures.

Tuesday he was at home, but he worked all day on a presentation he had to give on Wednesday.

Wednesday he gave his presentation. He also had a major project at work that required his attention. He went into the office at 7:00 AM and didn’t return home until close to 8.

Thursday he went into the office again for 7-ish. He busted his butt all day long, but managed to squeak out around 6 or so and we went sailing with some friends.

Today he’s at home. Today he will go jet skiing with a friend. And hopefully he won’t have to do a stitch of work today. My man works very hard, and here's hoping that he'll have a day of fun after the tough week he's had.

Next week we’re on vacation, and I am climbing the walls I cannot wait. Tomorrow we’ll meet my brother Kaz and his family as well as Todd’s family at Six Flags in Massachusetts for a day of fun. Sunday we’ll chill at home, then Monday we’ll get on the boat and sail around the bay until Wednesday.

On Thursday we’ll jump on a plane and head to Ft. Lauderdale, FL to do some diving on Friday and Saturday. We’ll chill on Sunday and wait out the 24 hour no dive before flying window, and fly home on Monday.

Now how’s that for a sweet vacation?

Wow. Lesson to self: when on vacation, get blind stinking drunk first thing in the morning so nobody can possibly expect me to show up to work!

Your vacation sounds like a blast, hope you have a ball!

I'm laughing at what TB learned from your post. He'll be mixing margaritas for breakfast.

Dude, I'm so jealous of your flight to Florida to dive. I hope it's phenomenal!

Todd's vacations sound very similar to KK's day off. Her phone rings constantly during her Fridays that she takes off.

Have a fabulous vacation!! Can't wait to hear about diving in Florida.
