The longest week known to man is the week before a vacation.
The days drag.
The nights are filled with planning and preparation.
Vacation is on the horizon but there is so much to do beforehand.
While at work the only thing you can think of is what you would rather be doing during the vacation week to follow.
It’s as if vacation is but a mirage in the desert right now. Is it real? Will it provide relief and rest? Is refreshment ahead?
I can see it. I can almost touch it…and yet the horizon feels so far off.
How do you make it through the week before a vacation? Do you have a strategy to deal with the anticipation and distraction?
Rude, I tell ya. Absolutely rude.
The weekend was going along just fine only to be interrupted by a Monday. And a Monday it is.
How about an all staff meeting to start your Monday morning? Or your week? However you look at it, this isn’t the best way to start. Can I get an “Amen!”?
So, rude Monday, how about you just go away and let me get right back to my weekend?
Unlike the camel in the commercials that wanders the office asking what day it is just so he can yell “Hump Day!”, I know what day it is and I am going to yell it too because, dang it, it has been a long short week.
Finally Freaking Friday!
No work on Monday has led to a long-ish feeling week and I am ready for a weekend. So…..
Just leave me alone today.
Then we all can enjoy a little more Finally Freaking Friday vibes together.
Of a three day work week.
Why can’t they all be this way? I mean I could really get used to this since it has been a fairly regular practice of as of late. How so?
Because of the holidays, there have been (at least for me) THREE weeks of three day work weeks. Whew! Say that fast 10 times!
Let’s break it down. In the last 7 weeks, three of them have been three day work weeks. I say we just make that the regular schedule. Like forever.
Now that is a bandwagon I can get on!! Who is with me??
