As of 4pm today (which will happen in 1.5 hours), I am on vacation! For a week!
What a revelation. Just “being on vacation” is not something adults normally do…. And yet.
I actually didn’t know until yesterday that we don’t have school on Monday, thereby extending our 3 day weekend. (next week is Golden Week in Japan, the biggest holiday of the year, where almost everyone travels. Only this Friday, Tuesday, Wed and Thurs are public holidays, so I assumed I’d work Monday and next Friday)
I’m not traveling because I hate crowds, generally, so I figured I’d avoid the rumored madness of Japan during Golden Week. So I will stay home, look at flowers, do spring cleaning, read lots, watch TV, and go for long bike rides. That’s pretty much all I have planned.
