So you want a day off?
So you want a day off. Let's take a look at what you are asking for.
There are 365 days per year available for work.
There are 52 weeks per year in which you already have 2 days off per week, leaving 261 days available for work.
Since you spend 16 hours each day away fron work, you have used up 170 days, leaving only 91 days available.
You spend 30 minutes each day on coffee break which counts for 23 days each year, leaving only 68 days available.
With a 1 hour lunch each day, you used up another 46 days, leaving only 22 days available for work.
You normally spend 2 days per year on sick leave.
This leaves you only 20 days per year available for work.
We are off 5 holidays per year, so your available working time is down to 15 days.
We generously give 14 days vacation per year which leaves only 1 day available for work.
There's no way I'll let you take that day off!

I had to laugh when I read this . . . if only it were true . . . I so needed today off!  . . . and I plan on working on some of the wonderful sketches posted at MSW for the February Sketch-a-Thon which I am so behind on.

A new month already?!  I can't believe it's February . . . where did January go?
A new month means new teacher gifts and I got some of them done last night.  I saw this idea in the January/February issue of Paper Crafts, page 65, by Julie Campbell and thought it was just too cute of an idea not to lift.

My version:

I also want to remind you that the Sketch-a-thon starts today at MSW and the first amazing sketch by Lucy is up today.  Hope you can join us in a  month full of fun!
