This year 7/4 falls on a Tuesday, and I get it off. CONvergence is that following Friday thru Sunday. davedujour wants to watch some movie on Thursday, so obviously, take Wednesday as well. So just work Monday? Should I take off Monday and just have a nice 9-day weekend with fireworks in the middle? I mean, I'd like to save up some time in my PTO bank, so maybe just stick with Thursday and Friday? Maybe I can work for the evening on 7/4 and save even more time. Ugh, I want to ask before it all gets filled by people who plan ahead and can make up their minds... Help?!
