I'm on vacation this week. That means I'm writing this in the past even though you're reading it in the present, which in my world, is the future.

Time is funny. For the past three weeks I've been anxious about this vacation, thinking, "HURRY UP AND GET HERE."  And now it is and I want time to stop. Or at least until I'm ready for it to start again.

Isn't there an app or Avenger for that? 

This doesn't have anything to do with accounting really other than I've written about taking vacations in the past and May is just so happens to be the perfect month for accountants to take some time off. 

My advice is typically suspect, but on this point I think it's pretty spot on. Use some vacation days this month. You won't regret it.
