In my old life, it was very rare to celebrate any holiday. Local holidays were often work days because we were tied to US schedules but US holidays were also working days since there were no local pay benefits for said days. Things haven't been too different for Tobie either since he has a lot of big deadlines and he has had his share of holidays and even weekends lost to work demands.
But tomorrow is going to be one of the first times that we're both on holiday, legitimately. and I'm sure that both of us will still need to get some work done since we're both in roles that remain on-call, at least there's still something to look forward to.
We don't have any big out of town plans. We don't have any super special events. But we will enjoy spending time together. And probably get a good number of errands and chores done. Plus Yoshi needs a bath again, as is typical for this busy little white dog.
