Just two more days of work left. My company will close at 5:00 p.m. Friday and won't reopen until January 3rd. Woohoo! Now if only I didn't have to complete two weeks of timesheets before I go...
I tried to schedule a bunch of doctors' appointments and service calls during my week off, but it seems I'm not the only one taking an extended holiday break. I hope to at least take the cats to the vet and get a plumber to fix our constantly-dripping shower faucet. It would be nice to get a few things accomplished during that week. Otherwise, I predict day after day of reading and watching movies.
I really have almost nothing planned for the break. We have two sets of heavy-duty shelves for the garage that need to be set up. Also, the house could stand a little deep cleaning here and there. I think I can handle all of that.
One household task that can't wait: changing light bulbs. Every once in a while, our antiquated electrical system goes on a light bulb slaughtering rampage. Right now, two of the three globe lights over our bathroom mirror are out. It's dark enough in that room at best; for the past two days I've been going into work with no idea how my hair and makeup look. Our porch light is out again (although the icicle lights on the eaves provide enough light that it doesn't really matter) and I've run across other burned out bulbs in various lamps.
So, you can see just how exciting next week is going to be for me. I'll do my best to ruminate on matters of general interest to spare you five days of domestic chore posts!
