I am getting ready for my vacation. Mr. Philly will be arriving in 10 days and we will have two full weeks and 3 surrounding weekends to live it up. I have taken one full week of vacation time and then I will have to work the second week. But that will be ok. I can't wait to have 10 whole days of no work. I'm looking forward to spending time with mister man, too.
We have tickets to Buzzfest, which is a major rock festival in Houston. That happens twice a year here. The line up is always great. This time it's going to be Framing Hanley, Anberlin, Theory of a Deadman, Shinedown, 10 years, Toadies, Blue October, 311, and Korn is headlining! Is that a line up, or WHAT???? I'm excited.
We are also going to spend some time at the museum of natural science, cause we're museum geeks. And we're going to go to some great restaurants and see a movie or two, and possible do a little road trip, though we may not do that. We shall see about that. I'd kind of like to go to hot springs or something, but maybe we will save that for some future trip.
Anyways... Good stuff ahead.
I don't usually take 5 whole days off in a row. I'm beside myself with giddy anticipation. I really need a break from this stressful job. I'm thankful I have a good job in a time when so many people are desperate for employment, but I work for a task master that understaffs our facility to a ridiculous extent and then applies extreme pressure to try to make us do double and triple a normal work load so he can get a big fat bonus for keeping us under budget. I am reeeeally resenting that. I am stressed out to an unhealthy degree so my wealthy boss can get a big bonus check. Meanwhile, I'm paid well, but not up to the standard for my profession and years of experience. Grrr.
But hey... VACATION!!!!
So yay. :-)
