It's amazing what the simple expectation of a day off can do. I've officially arranged to take off the next two Mondays, which means that I am going to have two three-day weekends in a row. And I feel pretty cheerful.
It's actually pretty surprising that I am so relaxed right now, as I seem to have turned off my alarm clock when I meant to hit the snooze button this morning. Only luck intervened to arrange that I woke up 20 minutes before I had to leave the house, rather than after. It was still a pretty rushed preparation to meet the day, and mornings that start that way very rarely result in pleasantness. So hurrah, I suppose.
Now I must apply myself to my monthly report for our executive types. Such fun!
