Well this is the last weekend of summer. I donâ€™t know what happened to mine but none of my summer plans came together. We did get to the cabin five or six times which was amazing but then July and August happened and I had to work nights on the weekends. It meant working Friday, getting 12 hours off and then working all night. It wasnâ€™t horrible but it isnâ€™t fun and it will be my last weekend of nights this weekend. It also means that I can actually sleep Friday nights and do stuff on Saturday and Sundays other then sleep.
The end result is that I still have 20 vacation and flex days to use up before December 31. We are heading to the lake for several days a week from now and then we are going to either Edmonton or Calgary for our anniversary in October (last years tenth anniversary was canceled due to food poisoning). I am taking the last week off around Christmas with some long weekends here and there. While it will be a lot of fun taking that time off this fall, in hindsight I should have taken a week off in spring. I wonâ€™t make that mistake next year.
At the lake, I plan to doing some reading, writing, and playing Madden 08 on the PSP. Of the three, I expect playing Madden 08 to be the most rewarding.
