Happy Labor Day (US)!
I worked today, because I need to save as much PTO as possible
for snow days this winter. I burned through most of my banked time off when Frances was sick, then when I got Thomas I used up the little bit I’d managed to re-bank. (We accrue time off biweekly, instead of getting a lump of time at the beginning of the year.)
So today I worked so I could save the holiday hours. Not the best way to celebrate Labor Day, but it beats having to drag myself to work in an ice storm or when it’s -10F.
