Friday Fragment time.
I read an article today about how Americans don't take all their vacation time. Especially when compared to European workers. Did you know that vacation days are MANDATED in Europe? Can you imagine someone telling a company you have to let someone have 28 days of vacation? That's what it is in England. Americans look at that and laugh. How many of us take all of our vacation time? I know I don't. I've got so much built up that it is ridiculous. But we all either feel guilty for taking it or we don't have money to take a vacation or we feel like the pile up of work isn't worth the time off. I'm going to try and do my best this year to take time off. Starting in a little over 4 weeks I'll be off work for 2+ weeks. Crossing my fingers that I'll do my part to get America in line with European vacations!
TV seasons are coming to an end. Two of my new dramas got renewed (Revenge and Person of Interest) and two were not renewed (Alcatraz and Prime Suspect). Revenge ends next week and I tell you if you haven't watched it, do yourself a favor and catch up over the summer. It is getting moved to Sunday when Desperate Housewives aired so that should tell you its a soap opera deluxe.
Whitney had surgery yesterday (number 5) on her tear duct. We really hope that this is the one to work. She did really well and even went to a picnic today for her old high school physics group.
I was also told that I needed to blog by Whitney. Always good to have the child insist you blog so she can read it. Guess that means I'm not too embarassing in what I write.
I just heard a radio commercial for the "real Penn State University." Is there a fake Penn State University?
We finally bought a new lawn mower. It is still in the box in the back of Dan's car but it is bought. And I planted roses by the mailbox. Let's see how long it takes for me to kill them.
