I agree with you, Minta, I used to get off at 2:00 on the Weds. before Thanksgiving and from 2:01 pm on it was a flurry of excitement, and having pizza on Weds night was a big tradition. And I definitely got more done on the Monday and Tuesday, because everything was to make sure that Weds-Saturday was as enjoyable as possible. Now I get done with work at 2:00 on Tuesday, and while I do appreciate being home on Thanksgiving Eve, I don't think I would use Personal Time to take off the Monday.I have done both.. taken the whole Thanksgiving week off and worked that Mon and Tues of Thanksgiving week and oddly I find that I actually get more done at home when I work that Mon and Tues. I also do not get the same excitement rush taking the whole week off as I do when I work that Mon and Tue.
