I'm so very glad I chose to call into work today. Yes, it is Christmas Eve. Yes, I had the day off paid. But I will be able to take a paid New Years Eve off instead. Plus, I finished all of the preparatory discovery work that I needed to accomplish in order to have myself lined out for an upcoming January 4th deadline in US district court (I don't fuck around with the Feds--they scare me!).
Now, I can enjoy my long weekend without fretting over any work related nonsense and I have the added benefit of pride in a job well done. (My boss told me I'd done an excellent job at least four times this morning.) *contented sigh of relief*
Happy Winter's Solstice everyone! :)
