On the bench this week, have PTO Friday, but have already mentally checked out and it’s not even noon on Monday. I feel guilty about not feeling guilty. I just had to say it to all the randoms on FB.

What EY1 said. I’m on the bench this week as well and there’s no way I’m burning PTO when it already feels like a vacation.

Life's all about balance - when you start to feel guilty just remember all of the 70 hour weeks you've put in
