I was considering the same thing. My fellow engineer has been out all week on his honeymoon. So I have been doing twice the work load. And I don't know all the details about his jobs, so its been even more frustrating trying to figure the job out as I do work on them.

If I don't come in, we have no engineer, so I have to suck it up.

Enjoy your ride.

I called in today, too. I haven't had a day off since the 4th and today is one of the nicest days we've had all month so I said screw it. I'm sitting on the patio having a cup of coffee and lovin' it.

I'm working from home today. Day off>work from home> office.

Seems to be good timing too. I got an email from someone at my office and apparently there is a leak in ceiling dripping into the middle of our office.

I cut out at 1.00 today. I've been getting take home work done on the patio of the bar down the street. Self proclaimed mental health halfday.

You are my new hero.

You have replaced the guy here that just disappears for 3 hours for lunch and no one questions it....

Awesomeness times Eleventy.
After the week I've had it's a miracle I plan to be back at work on Monday. Technically, with the over time I've put in every day this week I could leave at 1.00. Every now and then my job has perks.

Well Road ride went well enough, I wanted to go for a Mtn bike ride..... Angelous oaks, with my brother. Well I have a few MORE battle wounds.. My dumbass rode off the side of the trail, at a rather hi rate of speed. bout 30 feet down, tumbled the whole way down, least I didnt take the entire fall.
