After three weeks of living hell while my supervisor was away ("I'm going to New Zealand for 3 weeks; have these two bridges and this bridge rehab database completed by the time I get back. By the way, I haven't left you any of the background info that will allow you to do these things and all the other people working on these projects, regardless of whether they work for our company or for the owners, take forever to get anything done.") things are finally winding down. My supervisor is back, so all the crap I tried (unsuccessfully) to finish while he was away now gets dumped on him.
I can guarantee that it will still be waiting for me when I get back from my vacation to Greece in two weeks.
No that I no longer care about work (I'm just waiting out the clock now), and I finished taking care of all the mortgage/lawyer stuff for our new house, and the trip planning has been finished, I can finally start to look forward to Greece. I'm a history nerd, so this is going to be really cool. I may have to drag my bored wife around several museums and ruins, but I'll be happy.
We'll be taking a bus tour from Athens to Meteora, Delphi, Olympia, Napflion, Corinth, Mycenae, and finally back to Athens. After that, we get a more leisurely 2 days in Mykonos, 3 days in Santorini, and 3 days in Crete. We'll be taking lots of pictures, eating lots of gyros, and probably spending way too much money for people who have just bought a house.
Fortunately, my company just gave its staff a $1000 bonus. Yay! Let me open this here cheque and - hey! damn government took $418 out of my bonus.
