    Seems like the only thing as depressing as having peak approaching, is seeing today come and go. Not sure I can handle working a full week anymore! Kind of like this work a day, take two off routine we've been doing!
    When's my next vacation?

    Three more weeks until my winter vacation. Spreading out vacations is the only thing that keeps me sane.

    I don't mind working but now all that nit-picking begins. Let the games begin.

    The next 3 months are always the worst to work in this area. At least most of us haven't had much of a winter so far. But next week is looking as though we're in for a real taste of winter. Just in time for the heavy post peak dispatches, should be writing a 9.5 grievance by Friday.

    Yep first it will be excessive idling because god forbid you eat a sangwich with warm fingers.

    Packmule,

    Sorry to here that.

    I have been there.

    Before I knew how to enjoy every moment of every day, I never fully enjoyed Sunday because of the dread of Monday.

    I spent too much time wishing my life away to the next vacation only to dread the end of the vacation before it was really even half way over.

    It made life very hard on myself and those that I loved.

    I hope things seem less depressing to you real soon!

    Sincerely,
    I

    It's just another day.

    Get up, go to work, kill the dragon.

    Repeat for 30 years or more.

    Nothing to it.

    Live in the moment like a dog. You can't remember yesterday, and you have no concept of tomorrow.
