I'm writing this late Tuesday night and Brad and I are thinking about doing something fun today (Wednesday). Brad has the day off, and I'm thinking about playing hooky from work.
It's really difficult for me to call my boss with an excuse when I really have no legitimate reason for not going in -- or at least a reason my boss would think perfectly acceptable to miss work over.
But Brad is free and I really, really want to do something fun with him. He often works the late shift at the restaurant so we don't get to spend as much time with each other in the evening as we'd like.
It's nice to think about maybe sleeping in late, going out for lunch, deciding on something like visiting a museum or even just exploring one of the many state parks or reservations. Or going canoeing or sailing on the Charles River in the afternoon.
I'm going to figure out something to tell my boss about why I can't come in and hope it sounds convincing. Maybe I should just tell him I need a day off to tend to some personal matters and leave it at that. I have a hard time making things up, but telling him I need to take care of some personal things is actually true. It's just that he doesn't know the specific details which is that Brad and I want -- or need -- to spend some enjoyable time together.
Anyway, I'm sure I'll get this worked out in my head because I'm really, really looking forward to a day off in mid-week to spend all day with my honey. Plus, we start school again next week and things will start getting a little more hectic.
Do you guys sometimes feel guilty about taking a day off every now and then? I mean, I pride myself on going to work every day, not only because I really do enjoy what I do, but they also count on me to be there. I sort of feel guilty for letting my boss down but guys call in all the time and he just makes adjustments in the schedule and work tasks and life somehow seems to go on. :)
Hope everyone has a good Hump Day! See ya tomorrow!
