Spring Break

One of the cool things about working at a university is that we sometimes get to benefit from the same breaks we give our students. So while we didn't get all of this week off, we do get Friday off, which is nice. Very nice. Especially when you consider that the local K-12 school districts are also having their spring break this week, so a lot of the people I work with have been out this week, lightening my workload. Although Monday and Tuesday were busy, by Wednesday, things had gotten pretty quiet because so many people were out. Today I had to finally give up and go home early because there weren't enough people around for me to get any work done. I'd start one project, hit a snag, not be able to find anyone to answer a question, move on to another project, hit another snag, make another series of unanswered phone calls…

You get the idea.

But it was cool. I left at 2:30 and got an early start on my personal to-do list for Friday instead. And who doesn't like that?

My plan for tomorrow is to hit the gym in the morning and then run a few errands. After that, who knows? I'll probably just settle in at the computer and eat a late lunch, but a whole extra "free" day all to myself is a very special thing. I might get inspired. I might have a sudden brilliant notion. Or I might just say to heck with it and take a nap. You never know!

I'd like to take a free day tomorrow and get extra workouts in. the boss won't be in so maybe i'll take advantage of the breaks in my experiment and go out for a ride.

There is nothing like going to the gym when you have no were else to be after.

Cheers.

A free day is always nice. To me, there is nothing more decadent than taking a nap in the middle of the day - I vote for that :)
