Conversation in our home/office on a Wednesday morning:
Me: I need some time off. I wish we could take today off.Over on Women's Web, I write about what it is like to work with the Guy. Go read.
My husband: But there’s the client meeting.
I know! And tomorrow is our Office Hours. Maybe Friday?
Don’t we have that deliverable for a client?
Oh right. And Saturday we have that start-up event to attend. But at least we have Sunday.
No, our developer is working on Sunday, so we have to work with him.
Me, with palpable desperation: Oh my god, we’re never getting a day off!
