The Countdown is On!



It’s a bad sign, I think, when the best thing about work is counting down to a long weekend.  Still, bad or not, that’s where I am today.  It was literally all I could do to make myself go into the office today, and I’m thrilled with the idea of looking forward to a three day weekend to celebrate my birthday. 

Don’t get me wrong, there are many good things about my job, but it’s a job, so there are also many not so good things.  I just try to remember that everything—every single thing—is a learning opportunity.  Sometimes it’s about learning how I don’t want to do something, but it still helps me to grow.   And, if (I mean when) I finally hit the lottery and decide to open my own business, I’ll know just how I want to be as an owner. 

Anyway, back, to the good part—an extra day away.  My birthday falls on a Sunday this year, so I’m treating myself to a present of the vacation.  Sure, it’s just one extra day, but I feel like it can make all the difference in the world.
