this worked out well...


Thanks to everyone for the responses to the last post. I even got up early before work to read them and see which way the comment wind was blowing. As I headed out the door I was leaning toward working one day and taking one day for me. I wasn't, however, happy about it. The logical day to work would be Saturday, but the kids will be home Sunday afternoon - so painting would not happen. And in all actuality, I'd spend Sunday morning going grocery shopping and doing other necessary, but not too exciting, chores. I was leaning toward working one day, but I was still on the fence.


As the work day wore on, though, the most amazing and wonderful thing happened. Other people stepped up to the plate and started picking up shifts. I had told myself if anything was still open when I left I'd consider it. And nothing was. I did stay late tonight to help out, which both eases my conscience and puts a little extra cash in my pocket. End result? Clear conscience and two gorgeous days off.


Let the weekend begin.

Love how that turned out. Have fun, don't do too much housework or grocery shopping. Do more DVD nights with munchies.

Sometimes things work out best when you just let them play out on their own. Enjoy!

I love it when the decision is taken out of my hands like that - although you decided to let it happen like that if it would, which was a decision actually, and suggests to me that you really wanted that week-end, and yay, now you've got it!

Don't you love it when everything works out in the best possible way?

Have a great weekend... by the way, what color are you going with?

Drink the wine after you paint.

So, it wasn't about the money? It was that you would feel bad about not going in? I would have told you to take the whole weekend off in that case.
