A dear friend of mine is married to a man who works at a bank. He definitely was thinking when he chose his profession because he gets lots of extra holidays off throughout the year that the average worker does not get (a fact he likes to remind my husband of with plenty of advance of the day…then my husband makes movies in response…it just goes back and forth…I won’t go into the differences between men and women at this point).
ANYWAY, school children also get most of these days off. Wasn’t that fun? Getting days off all the time in school? Not college school–elementary school. That is where the holidays were awesome. I really, really, really think some holidays should be standard–like Civil Rights day–why is that not standard? Doesn’t that one seem like a pretty big deal in our history? Shouldn’t it get a little more respect?
ANYWAY…I have decided that for my pregnancy, I will follow the example of the bankers and school children of the USA and take those holidays off myself. So today instead of a regular post, you get to read a some-what (or lot-what) rambling post that takes several paragraphs to say “I am taking today off.” I guess that is what you get when I am pregnant and tired and sick. Rambling. Just enjoy it.
