Rant #847: Working For the Weekend
The only problem is that Friday is not Saturday nor Sunday. Friday is not the weekend.
I may have Friday on my mind, but I really have the Friday after work on my mind, and the two days that follow it.
It has really been a rough few weeks for everyone in my neck of the woods, what with the hurricane, the nor'easter, and adjusting to life after that.
And as I have said, my family was really, really lucky. I can only imagine what others have had to go through, and will continue to go through.
As for me, these weeks have been long and rough, and I am just looking forward to some relaxing time.
It has just been announced that gas rationing will end this weekend, so the odd/even thing is out the door.
It seemed to work, and the only question I have to our governor is why it wasn't imposed earlier?
I waited 10 hours for gas one weekend on four different lines. Ridiculous, but it was me and thousands of others who killed a weekend doing that.
There is nothing special about this coming weekend, no Knicks games, no celebrations of birthdays, nothing like that.
It's just a time to relax, and although you can't fully relax as a parent, at least you can wind down a little.
And that is what I hope to do.
So I will see you Monday.
And you know what? Next week is a really short week with Thanksgiving coming up, so relaxation looms.
And no, I won't be running out on Black Friday to do my shopping.
That wouldn't be very relaxing, would it?
