Thursday is the new Friday
Happiness is a three-day weekend...times 18. When you work for the same company for as long as I have (19 years!), you get a lot of vacation time. And when you live on a ranch with a bunch of animals, you tend not to take long vacations and end up with a lot of unused vacation time. If I don't use up mine by mid-September, I will lose it, and that would be a travesty. So starting today, I am taking the next 18 Fridays off.
I don't have any big plans for how I will spend all this extra free time. I'm sure that Lucy and I will go for many long rides. I may go to Trader Joe's more often. Maybe I'll even take a few day trips. Today's big adventure is taking Smooch and JohnnyCashCat to the vet for their annual check-ups. Won't that be fun. At least this vet visit doesn't involve the horse trailer or pushing a crate full of pig into the truck.
The picture of Alan and George is from December 2007 and has nothing to do with this post, other than it makes me happier. I can't be certain because of the one little bush that's in the way, but I'm pretty sure all eight feet are off the ground.
