The Topsy Turvy World of the Perfect Schedule

Obviously I'd rather not have to work, but I love that I can provide the fam with bennies and only have to work weekends and that Wally can exercise some good father/son time to avoid any future Cats in the Cradle and the Silver Spoon forlornery, I love it.

One downside though is that I get no PTO (paid time off), or holiday time, which makes me a little sad as Easter approaches, cuz, well, I have to work it. This year I also get to work the hubby's family's favorite annual holiday get-together: the 4th of July, and as my sister-in-law recently called to my attention: CHRISTMAS! 7am to 6pm! My boss who is leaving for another department tells me not to worry, that being told that I'm on the bottom of a very long list of requests for time off doesn't mean a thing. That even though it's a Saturday that doesn't offer the special Christmas-Triple-Time-And-A-Half-And-One-Day-Off-In-The-Following-Year incentive for others to work the holiday, that Jimmy will wake up to a smiling Santa Mommy who will spend the entire day with him, setting up an annual family feast. Ta-not ta-worry! I don't know...I hope she's right!

In the meantime I found some cute Easter Basket deals. A $10 coupon for The Princess and the Frog, I can't wait to see it, and a fun Toy Story/Toy Story 2/Toy Story 3 at the Movies deal from Amazon, can't wait to celebrate the release of Toy Story 2 on my birrrrrthdayyyyy (which I *don't* have to work, hurrah!)
