For the first time in about 4 years, I'm going to have a weekend day off. At work they post shift bids, and I won the Thursday/Friday/Saturday days-off shift. Aside from when I was on graveyard for years, I haven't had a weekend day off for, well... four years.
I don't know what I'm going to do with a weekend day off. Saturday's free? I don't know what that is anymore! My goal is to get the Sunday/Monday/Tuesday days-off shift, which should become available soon, but for now, this is a nice change.
Although, I may have shot myself in the foot for the next two weeks.
See, for the next 11 days, I think I only get 1 day off. Due to the way our work weeks go (Sunday through Saturday), when I switch days off, I'll wind up working a straight 7 days (Thursday through Wednesday the following week). Add to that the fact that I signed up for 2 days of overtime THIS week, that leaves me one day off.
Oh well, the money's good, the job's easy, and it'll be over soon.
And I'll have a Saturday, somewhere in there, to spend with family.
