I know.....most of you our thinking today is Thursday, but for our family, today is Friday. A little over a year ago, PPG offered it's salary employees what they call a 9/80 schedule. So, instead of working 8 hours a day (or 80 hours in 10 days) they work 9 hours for 9 days and then on the 10th day (a Friday) they have off. (Sorry, that's not written very well...I'm confused even writing it. I'm lucky to have any brain cells left after the week we've had!) Well, it boils down to the fact that every other weekend is a 3 day weekend...and this weekend is Iain's!
So every other Thursday is his "Faux Friday." :) You'd be surprised what a big difference that day makes for us.
The cherry on top is that my friends Chellie & Clint (Luke's parents) work at Citgo where they also have a 9/80 schedule and - as luck would have it - they have the same Friday off as Iain. So, that means I have off tomorrow too. Hallelujah! I think this little stir-crazy mom is getting out by myself tomorrow.
Here are a few quick pics of a few friends:
