Today I am thankful for a day off. Since the dispatch center has to be covered 24/7 we work a rotating schedule, 1 weekend on, 1 weekend off. Since this was my weekend to work, I have Monday off. Even though I was still up at 4:00 for the ritual coffee before getting kids up to go to school, I still don't have to go to work. In fact, just getting to see them off to school is a bit of a gift, usually I leave before they are up and their dad gets to see them off. Today is a rare day of no real plans, other than doing paperwork for the Boy's college applications. I hope to get caught up on some things, like finally putting away all the packing from Saint Louis. So I am grateful indeed for a day off.
