Putting my money where my ass is

Lest you all think I'm a big ol' whiner (well, bigger than I normally am), I checked my year to date stats to see just how much time I've put in this year.

Year to date, I've put in nearly six weeks of overtime.  That's 40 hour weeks.  And that's through yesterday; I worked another 2.5 hours of overtime today.

More than 50 of those hours are since the week of Thanksgiving.  Shame I won't have this week's hours on my December paycheck; that would be a sweet bunch of overtime pay!

Once the year is done I think I'll go back and see how those hours break down between pre-marathon and post-marathon.  I'm pretty sure I put 2/3rds of them in since June.  No wonder I'm always too tired to run!

My boss is taking a tropical vacation right after our deadline.  My co-worker told him to think of us as he sits on a beach in the sun sipping mai tais.  I told him to think of me, back home with the company credit card, as he sits on a beach in the sun sipping mai tais. 

Pretty sure I'll be getting a bonus check this year.  If only to placate me while he's gone and I've got the company credit card.

Here's to a happy new year to everyone.  I'll catch up with you some time after January 3, once I've woken up from the three day bed bender I'm planning to indulge in.

  1. I hope you don't end up like Clark Griswold and get a Jelly of the Month Club membership instead of a nice Christmas bonus. With all of those hours you definitely deserve it! ... the bonus, not the jelly. Okay, you can go buy some jelly with the bonus if you want. ;)
