I have been putting out “fires” on the job for months now. Hopefully, after tomorrow it will end. At least for awhile. I found out today that I can still do an upside-down, verticle, one-armed push-up on my left (weakest) arm all day long while sucking mud in a four foot hole as water gushes up from the main line.
I have finally decided that it’s about damned time for me to take two weeks off. I told my immediate boss and he agreed. It’s been about three years since I last took a vacation. He will present it to our bosses, I will get the blessing and I will then sleep for an entire week.
I plan to have some fun too. Daughter and I will be going to the beach almost every day. We will swim and fish in the surf, get freakishly dark, catch fish and fry them the next day with fried potatoes, raw onion, pork and beans and raw jalapenos. After our long, hot showers, we will hit our beds ankles and head at the same time.
