Fantastic Friday

Friday, May 28, 2010

I love the thought of having a Fantastic Friday. The whole idea came to me from a stranger that I now have nicknamed Mrs. Fantastic!

A couple of years ago our company changed their vacation policy and the employees could only accumulate 1 week over their normal yearly vacation time. If we do not keep our time below this amount we forfeit additional time.

Anyone who had amounts over what would be allotted had an option of using the extra up prior to a particular date or taking a pay out. I choose to use mine by taking every Friday off for most of one summer. That was a Fantastic Summer of Fridays.

Weather permitted I would take my dog on a nice long walk. There was this one house where a lady and gentleman sat out on their porch many of fridays I was walking my dog. They always waved and said hello. One day I asked her how she was and she said "Fantastic" with such enthusiasm that I walked away with a smile on my face and thinking that it was too bad more people didn't have that feeling or enthusiasm for that matter.

I have made it a habit to try to have more Fantastic Friday's, and the feeling that she gave me that day is right here at the surface of my memory. Let's all strive to be Fantastic and spread that to others! My wish to all is to have a Fantastic Friday leading to a Fantastic Weekend!

    What a SWEET deal for yourself!

    I knew someone who treated herself to Power Wednesdays and NO ONE, not even her partner was allowed to plan ANYTHING involving her on Weds. as they were HER days to do with WHATEVER she wanted!
