This is the last confession post of 2016, guys! Whut. It's so cliche, but the older I get, the faster time goes. WHERE DID THIS YEAR GO. But simultaneously, it's nice for it to be over and get that "renewal" feeling. Once again, I am making plans for 2017, the usual about organization, finances, home improvement, self-improvement, yadda yadda. Really I think I just like making lists. No, I KNOW I really like making lists.
I've been trying really (kind of) hard not to buy things for myself but then Zappos sent me a $30 off coupon that expired at the end of this month so I was like, oh okay if YOU INSIST ZAPPOS BUT THIS IS TOTALLY AGAINST MY WILL. So I basically got a pair of Keds for free. And I may or may not have bought another pair of shoes which negated the whole saving money part. I AM A WEAK PERSON. But really though, who are we kidding, I was going to buy a new pair of work shoes anyway.
I get Monday off! And I may or may not have taken Thursday and Friday off as well... I have like a million PTO (paid time off) that I didn't use this year (okay not a million, more like 60) and even though they roll over, so I don't need to use them, WHY THE HELL AM I NOT USING THEM. I like to keep a buffer of hours, in case I get ill (I do not have separate sick time like my husband. For reals he has like four weeks of VACATION TIME and then I don't know how much sick time), or Neil gets really ill, but sixty is more than a buffer. Let's hope I use all that time to actually get shit done and not just laze about in front of the heater with my laptop and kitties.
