Bub Bye W**M**T

I just sent off my last avalanche of e-mail, which means I'm on vacation for 2 weeks!!

You see, it's my birthday next week (the 10th), and I always have a crappy day whenever I work on my birthday. I would take it off, but I don't get vacation pay so if I don't work I don't get paid. What with being a responsible adult with bills and mortgage and all, that means I have to work. My last extended time off was when I was unemployed in the fall of 1999. That's right, I haven't had a vacation in 5 years. No wonder I'm so cranky.

Mr. W's birthday gift to me was to take out enough of his own vacation pay to get me two weeks off work. Is he awesome, or what? Now I can sleep in for days & days because I don't have to drive his ass to work at 7:30 a.m. He is also taking next week off to hang with me, we'll play some Xbox and not shower and do some really naughty things.

We're not going anywhere because that would cost money. We're painting our master bedroom. Mr. W requested Indian Red for the walls, which was a real shocker from a man who loves the colour blue. I want to do a gold paint stenciling thingy near the ceiling - don't worry, no country-ducks allowed. I hope it'll look kick ass, although frankly, anything would be an improvement over what's there now...

Anyway, I wish for not too much snow, and some sun on my face at 10 a.m. instead of fluorescent lights.
