In regards to 3:
I meant more like Thanksgiving or Christmastime, times when it is traditional to be with family and most people get off work. This also makes me curious about another thing... I hope it doesn't sound rude, but you place ADF (spiritual family) as a priority over blood family?
RE 6: Liar!!
RE 13: Hooray, I'll let you know when *I* get my ass out there and turn that thing in. Keep in mind you can go after work any day, too, although it is less convenient.
RE 15: Excellent! Let's go visit some sometime. :)
No, I do not place ADF above my family or my friends.
Regarding Thanksgiving and Christmas, though: I don't get a lot of time off for either, and most of the time that time off has to be spent doing something else.
More importantly, though, I stay home, I keep working because I recognise that co-workers have children that they need to spend time with, wives or husbands that they need to be with, and me, I'm single. I can see my family on a weekend. If I'm not in Chicago for Easter, maybe two of my co-workers are spending time with their children or parents who live so much further away. I can give them that.
Plus, Tina has a need to see her family that I don't have. She needs to be around her family for Christmas, so I watch the cats to give her that time. We cannot both leave.
It is as simple as that.
Very considerate and sweet. :) I was not at all trying to be accusing, just curious. My family I can see whenever I want, but they would nontheless be deeply insulted if I did not show up for Christmas. Hell, my brother will probably fly home from California just to be there. Mayeb not every year, but at first... yeah. We don't go to church together or anything, so I'm not really sure WHY that is... it just is. And as your situation tends to be very different, I was wonder if your family visited your or if you had something else worked out or whatever.
Definitely got ot watch the cats. I've been thinking about cats a lot lately and how beneficial it would probably be to get one sooner than later, since now there are four and there will be six who can take care of the cat. A number of us could take it home with us, too, in the event we all leave (say, Christmas.) But, I just don't know... I worry about allergies. :\
