I bought a Fall piece that I've wanted for awhile now

The horse drawn carriages at the base move around the piece. It's really sweet.

I'm excited, but I know I cannot just take vacation time tomorrow without giving a reason (in other words, I can't just say I have stuff to do and need off as the chances of getting it are slim, particularly since I was off today). My boss has mentioned that she knew once I graduated I would be moving on probably, and we are on good terms about it. She has mentioned that she thinks I'll be finding a different job soon.

I won't lie about why I'm taking off tomorrow, and I won't lie and just call in sick. I'm a bit nervous about telling my boss, but feel honesty is best. I feel I should just explain that this chance has come up and I would appreciate the time off. It's a gamble, because I don't want her to get mad, but I also don't want this opportunity slip by. What would y'all do?

If you think it would make your professional life uncomfortable & difficult, I wouldn't go into specifics & just ask for a personal day.

Good luck to you, friend!

Oh boy, another scorcher of a day here today folks, TTL I work in the AC...

I got up at 4:15 this morning so that I could get to work early so that I could take a few hours off work this morning to take my grandfather to the heart doctor for a routine check-up. I goofed up and read the nurses handwriting wrong and I thought our appointment was at 11:15 am, but instead it was 11:45 am. We got there too early!

Uggggh, I had to wait 55 minutes before the nurse called us back and then, the doctor himself ended up being about another hour behind schedule. I wasn't too thrilled about that, almost 2 hours of waiting before we even saw the doc. needless to say, everything checked out ok and the doc say he looks good...

I went back to the office and still got my 8 hours in today. I think the rest of the night will be dinner, (check), shower (check), some MMC, a Christmas movie and a bowl of peanut butter and chocolate Ice Cream....
