Kiss the Summer goodbye

How ridiculous is it that we simultaneously have impending scheduled layoffs and mandatory overtime? The answer is: very ridiculous.

I shouldn't bitch. Overtime means an opportunity to earn a little more money to pay down growing debts. But it also means a loss of precious days off, and an addition to fatigue and exhaustion.

But this could all change on a dime. The overtime could be an ephemeral thing. Even with people taking vacation time, rolling layoffs due to lack of work could be just around the corner.

Even so, there are things I want to do this Summer. People I want to see. Porches I need to paint. Lawns I need to mow. Walls I need to repair.

Will I be able to do any of this? We'll see.
