Finally Friday

I am glad that it's Friday. I'm going out of town until Saturday afternoon, then coming back and working on the boat. I'm in bad need of a break from work and this weekend will do just fine. It's been raining most of the week and I've been tired and stayed up too late almost every night. It seems that after a meeting, I need some time to unwind and I do that by reading. I have a stack of books by the bed and read until my eyes cross (which may only be five pages).

Today is a happy day because it's Friday. Sometimes I wonder if I'll make it another 3 years. We had a staff meeting this morning and it was long and made more painful by a colleague who is an alcoholic. He smelled of booze, was shaking and gray looking. Not a pleasant way to start anybody's day. Just the smell of the stuff makes me want to leave the room. But I made it through by looking out the window at the harbor. Taking a trip in your mind is sometimes the only way to get through difficult situations.

Anyway, hope that all have a good weekend. I'm out of here.


  1. I used to love Fridays because I could start drinking and not worry about working and dealing with showing up like your colleague. Now I am loving Fridays because I have plans. Kayaking, reading, soccer, this weekend the Patriots and Red Sox and catching up on the household chores in my own time. And just not dealing with a schedule. Anyway, hope yours is great. Enjoy!

  2. I am glad you are going to get some rest this weekend. You have been tired all week... and I can relate.
