Like most people, I love vacation.
Sadly, I’m just not good at it.
If I go on vacation for 5 days, I can’t even enjoy it until day 4.5.
I’ve considered practicing my vacation skills, but I never seem to have enough time to get away.
But this week this all changes.
On Thursday and Friday, I will be taking two days of sweet sweet vacation time. It’s possible I will even take the weekend as an extended vacation.
And I am looking forward to it.
No getting to the office early.
No phone calls to return.
No 75 emails per day in my inbox.
No students or teachers asking "Do you have a minute?"
No making a decision which automatically makes half the people mad at me.
Just peace and quiet.
Just me and Buddy the Dog laying around watching bad TV (technically he just might be sleeping).
I’ve been looking forward to this short vacation for weeks.
What I’m not looking forward to is the surgery.
But my wife is. She really doesn’t want to have two Evil Spawns running around.
I may write a blog during this vacation. I’m guessing I’ll think I’m hilarious while hopped up on valium. Maybe it will be about the bond of shared experiences Buddy and I will now "enjoy".
