Out of Office

There’s nothing better than going on vacation and turning on the Out of Office reply.  A vacation is in order!

It’s 4:30 am, I’m still awake (from the night before) fighting insomnia. Oh, did I mention I have to be up for work in about two hours?

Not sweating it though, tomorrow is my last day before I officially go on vacation! I use the term officially very loosely because my mind (and body) has already threw in the towel. Plus, I can feel my brain turning into mush, just thinking about work.

I planned my vacation the same week of Christmas to maximize my time at home and to minimize using a ton of PTO. With Christmas and New Year’s Day both falling on a Monday this year, it allowed me to be home with my wife and son for 10 days! The last time I had this much time off was around eight months ago when my son (Ezra) was born. I only have a couple of days left to work, so I’ve got my eye on the “prize” and focused on the light at the end of the tunnel.

Fast forward (it is now 8:25 am)…

I got to work about 30 minutes ago, grabbed some breakfast, and here I am just 48 hours away from switching on my Out of Office reply and being “work-free” for 10 straight days!

My wife also has the week off, so both of us have some well-deserved time-off on the horizon. My brother-in-law is getting married two days after Christmas, but outside of that, our calendar looks pretty clear. We have a babysitter for New Year’s Eve, which means Mommy and Daddy get to celebrate and toast to the New Year worry and stress-free.

I highly doubt we’ll do anything spectacular, but at this stage, we’re just happy to have some alone time together. Hopefully, the day goes fast, and before I know it, I’ll be sleeping in, enjoying morning coffee, and taking in each minute one second at a time.
