Well, that's the case for me this week.
Yes, Friday is the payday with the extra pay for working the Labor Day holiday.
Yes, the weekend promises some rest and relaxation, and not having to work both days.
But Monday is the start of a mini-vacation for me — three blissful days with nothing that I have to do but relax and laze about.
Even better, a former coworker from Japan is coming here to visit for three days, including that Monday. Even better, he is a former golf buddy. Even better, we're going to play a LOT of golf over three days!
One of my current coworkers, El Cid, is taking some of his maxed out vacation time off as well, so there will be at least three of us playing at a variety of Guam courses. I hope my ex-coworker kept his Guam driver's license, or else it's going to get quite expensive for him. LOL
I think I'm going to get my old set of irons re-gripped. My new irons are OK, but the old ones were made for a tall person -- the shafts are a bit longer -- and I think they will help my game with some new jumbo grips to replace the originals, which are kind of falling apart.
If I can get them in by Thursday, they should be done by the weekend, so I can try them out with S and the godson before I take them out with El Cid and Ryo-san, when there surely will be some betting involved.
C'mon, Monday ... get here already!
