However, in the mean time I've had to work my butt off in order to be able to afford so much time off! So I've been working hard so that I could play hard for a month! :)

We've all heard the some variation of the saying "you've got to work hard to play hard." Well I have experienced first hand what that saying feels like over the past 2 weeks. I was lucky enough to get to spend a week at home with my family for Thanksgiving but arrived back in Virginia Beach last Sunday evening ready to work again. Since that time I've worked NON-STOP! In 11 days time I will have worked a total of 157 hours. Oh yes, you read it right 157 crazy long hours in just 11 days. I fly out Friday morning bright and early to head home for a wedding. However, instead of coming back I get to stay and spend 2 1/2 weeks at home and then 10 days in Honduras! I have the world's best employers. They are far too kind to me. Believe me I realize how rare it is to get so much time off for the holidays and I'm thankful for the chance to spend some much needed time with my loved ones!
