So like I said, on Friday, we got a note from our old CEO saying that even though they didn't have to (because our benefits with NewCompany start on January 1) --because all of their employees have Columbus Day off, they wanted to welcome us by giving us Columbus Day off, too!

I have never had Columbus Day off, it's sort of a weird day to have off, BUT I AM NOT COMPLAINING! WHEE!!!

I have that giddy sense that comes with such an unexpected boon, ya know? *twirl*

I'm going to put this day (and my hyper energy levels) to good use and I SWEAR I AM GOING TO CLEAN THE BEDROOM.

No, really. I'm not just going to sit here typing idle blather all day. I am going to put on some music and GET CRACKING. Even if nothing else gets done (the kitchen, frex) the bedroom is going to be in good shape by the end of day.

Um. That means I have to leave the computer now, doesn't it? *clings*

Okay. I'll be visiting throughout the day because I am a giant nerd.

I have the day off too!! I'm taking the kittens to the vet, Murphy and I are going on a bike ride and run, and then I'm going grocery shopping. Because it's fall, I get to break out the crock pot and am making dinner! I really want to sit on the couch and drink hot chocolate, but I can't (have to buy milk!)

Oh to be independently wealthy and have every day off. Childhood is wasted on the youth and retirement is wasted on the elderly...they should all work to support the lazy 30-somethings!!!!

(Also, needink pictures of kitties!)

Yay for extra days off!! Hope you are having a very productive day. Or at least you're happy with whatever you end up doing =)

I LOVE unexpected/unplanned days off. Of course, I could've thought of something else you could do with your unexpected day off, but, you know, a long-overdue cleaning of your bedroom is fine too, I guess. ;)

(In seriousness, though -- I totally love that feeling of doing something productive with an unexpected day off, and just feeling like you're on top of the world, everything's in its place, etc. etc. Congrats!!)
