TGISF: Thank God Its (Summer) Friday

I am so looking forward to work tomorrow for two reasons. One: tomorrow is Friday. Two: half the office will be out for a summer Friday.

I love summer Fridays. Even when I don't have the day off. Earlier this month I took my summer Fridays and it was fantastic to have a day off to sleep-in, get things done and enjoy my day. But when I'm in the office and most of the office is out enjoying their days off, I have time to get stuff done. There are less emails, less phone calls and less people popping up at my desk.

This week has been a little crazy. It was supposed to be my week to work on all the little events we have coming. I ended up spending most of my week working on our big event. Tomorrow will be my day to get organized and take some time so focus on the things on my to-do list that have been ignored.

Unless I totally jinxed myself by writing this post. I really hope not.

On that note, I'm going to bed and praying for a productive, uninterrupted day.

I work at a company that gives us every other friday off year-round. I'll probably never have that again (I'm going back to school next month), but it really makes such a difference.

Summer Fridays are fantastic! Empty office, relaxed atmosphere. Bliss. I don't feel guilty about checking my personal email and searching the internet for random things like how to tone your arms without bulking them up (really... I did that one last Friday). Have a great friday!

I love that summer Fridays mean less of a commute into work. In the Washington, DC metro area, this means a ton!!! :-)

I read your post last night and then went to work this morning. Woa it didn't really dawn on me that there were soo few cars in the parking lot at my office building on Friday. There are like 20 cars and there's usually at least 50. I laughed and laughed and realized oh wait, shoot, I wish I had off too!! =)

I'd never heard of summer Friday's until your blog and now I wish my company had them too. What a bunch of old cronies we've got over here!

Have a great weekend!

I read this and thought "either you're on furlough or your company is totally unaffected by the economy to be able to do this." Either way -- I hope all is well and you have a good day.
