We've been working some pretty long hours. I keep telling myself, 'make your hay while the sun shines...' but it's getting exhausting.
Day by day, we're chipping away at it, though. Today was a neat day for two reasons: This morning we had a meeting, and it was announced that the mask mandate has been dropped. People were excited.
This afternoon, I discovered that we have Monday, the fifth of July off. I was excited enough about the two day weekend. Imagine my joy at discovering that they are trying to finangle the Saturday off as well. Everyone is tired and three day weekend will do us a world of good.
I came home tonight and told Tim that I wanted to devote a few hours to kayaking over the holiday weekend...and that I wanted him to come with me. He was agreeable to it. I really think he will love it once he actually tries it.
I've been day dreaming about far off goals for some time now - going to see Cara and Colin, once they are settled, a transatlantic cruise, the luxury of not having to count days, the freedom to go where we want for as long as we feel like going (retirement is going to be so great!) We have a lot to look forward to, that's for sure, but it feels awfully nice to be looking forward to something in the not-so-distant future too.
I'm keeping up with blogs...just not a lot of time for commenting on them all.
