It's shift bid time at work right now, and it looks like our days off are going to be changing a little bit.
For the last few months we've had Tuesday and Wednesday off, which have been pretty good days off. Now we're going to be having Mondays and Tuesdays off, which I think I might like even more for a couple of reasons.
First off, Monday is the "official holiday" day for most holidays, which means that we'll already have those holidays off, which means that we can get the day before or after our days off pretty much for free.
Second, it's football season...so I'll be able to watch Monday Night Football every week, which will be fun.
Third, it still gives me Tuesdays off, which I like having for new video games and going to the race track at Dirt Burners.
Finally, it means that when we switch shifts we will have a short four day work week. I know it might be lame, but the way the schedule works if you switch to later days in the week, you end up with a LOOOONG week between your days off. So, say we switched from Tuesday-Wednesday to Friday-Saturday, we would have to work eight straight days when it comes time to switch.
We will be moving to the new days off very early in October...so we've still got about 5 or 6 weeks left of our current days off.
