Yesterday I was idly looking through my WordPress widgets – the things on the right like the categories, search box, signup, etc. I came across the Milestone one and decided to open it. This is the widget that says how many months/days are left until the big day. Currently it counts down to Christmas day, but I will change that once we officially book the plane tickets.
When I opened up the Milestone widget, I found myself chuckling a bit at the message that will be displayed on the day the countdown expires… but I will leave that big reveal until the big day. I am trying to imagine December 18, but it’s sort of hard even though it is so close.
I had today off, one of the few advantages to not going to the Netherlands over the summer. The other of course being saving money. But since I am not going anywhere, I have to pick random days to take off. Happily, Marco is getting close to officially asking for time off both for late September and for December. (Yay!). Which means that I should be submitting my request for September vacation soon too. But I don’t think I will be able to take any time off for December – it will be a very busy time and hopefully I will be training my replacement at that time. Hopefully.
But there’s still 6 months to go before then. I know it will go by fast.
It’s sad to see the Netherlands voetbal team lose all 3 games in Euro 2012. Better luck next time!
