And I will say hello to five(ish)* days of vacation!
The school year for Chunky ends tomorrow and Dr. Mad Scientist doesn't start unemployment until June 28. So there's a five business day gap where we didn't have anyone to watch him.
Thus my seven day weekend!
There will be baking--
This week's Cookie of the Week: oatmeal sandwich cookies--a homemade version of the Little Debbie kind. So damn good!
There will be sewing--
A summer knitting bag I made myself this past weekend out of some oilcloth and cotton scraps I had lying around.
And depending on the weather, lounging by the "pool"--
Basement neighbor built a platform for the pool this year so it's perfectly level. The boys are going to have a blast in this thing!
If I can accomplish all this stuff and lounging in one weekend, imagine how much fun it will be during this time off!
Although Dr. Mad Scientist and I are already making bets about how many times the office will call while I'm out. Ha ha!
*"Fiveish" because the last two days of my vacation I got called for jury duty. I was told by work I don't have to count those as vacation days. However what they don't understand at work is: ANY DAY I DON'T HAVE TO BE THERE IS VACATION! Plus I always get boned out of taking all of my 10 days off a year. If I don't count those days as vacation days, I'll probably have to say goodbye to them on January 1, 2012. I also don't want to have to show up at work if I get dismissed early. Chunky will go to school with Dr. MS those two days and help him chip the gum off the bottom of the desks.
