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.
