I’ve had this window open for most of the evening and here I am finally getting ready to head off into la-la land.
I had to stay home today to take care of the mother-in-law and of course, Angelo. My caregiver called in sick. As it was easier for me to take a day off, I promptly called in my “emergency time off” card. And just as I couldn’t do anything when I got the 7:30-ish text from my caregiver saying she wouldn’t be able to come in, I guess the boss had no choice but to just be his usual self-sufficient self sans his ever dependable Executive Assistant today.
I tried to avoid logging on to do any work except for the end of the day. I was, after all, supposed to be off. I didn’t ask to work from home.. I actually gave a day for this.
We capped the day with a light dinner at the neighborhood Mickey D’s, picked up some odds and ends at the Asian store then headed home.
I just got some news from home which makes me wish there weren’t 10,000 miles between New York and Manila. Alas, it is more than just 10,000 miles — it’s work, home, Angelo. So the 10,000 miles stays.
