Need More Four Day Weekends

It’s been a while since I actually took the Friday after Thanksgiving off. My company doesn’t give it to us as a holiday, so I usually just work and save the vacation time. This year I let myself take a four-day weekend, and it was very nice. And very busy. I spent most of the time working on drywalling and mudding the stairs to the basement. It actually looks pretty decent, except for those accursed corners. I also cleaned out the gutters and started putting up Christmas lights. I thought I had planned everything out and tested the lights before bringing them up to the roof, but no, half the lights decided to go out once I got them up there. So annoying.
There were other highlights to the weekend: another fine Thanksgiving dinner with the Cajuns (and Golden Carolus Noël beer I brought); Rickrolling the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade; Saturday night at Church Street Pizza; Giants beat the Redskins handily again.
It was too short, even at four days, but it was great to get to spend four whole days with the family.
