I would assume that a majority of salaried 9-5er's would have tomorrow off as a floating holiday. I do.

It's fun, it's healthy, it's good exercise. The kids will just love it. And we put a little sand inside to make the experience more pleasant.

You know, they say there was a man who jumped from the forty-FIFTH floor? But that's another story...

I would, but I opted to use my floating holiday as one of my 'vacation days' last week for my wife's surgery...

yay.

OK, one time Randy Beaman had to take baths with his brother. So one time his little brother took a potty in the bathtub .....and now Randy Beaman gets to take showers alone. 'K, bye.

I'm off the 3rd per our holiday schedule and taking Monday off as a PTO day.

The Mrs. has to work tomorrow so I'm having a few boys over for some day gaming!

We'll have Monday off together, but we're unsure what we'll do with the girls.

I do, but I'm going to the office anyway. Some days the office is more of a vacation than staying at home, especially if no one else is there.

I did not say this.

I was not here.

Yep, I have tomorrow off for the 4th. Unfortunately, I am also working on a strategic business plan (sounds impressive, but in reality, meh, not so much), so I've brought the laptop home. angry

Furloughed today (2nd), paid holiday tomorrow. Back to work on Monday. I put the furlough day to good use and had tons of fun with the kids and grandparents. Money isn't everything, it helps, but it isn't everything.

No. As a state employee who sits at a desk all day, I don't get time off. I got mattress sale day off. But the daycare is closed, so I won't be at work. I'll be taking a sick day.

I'm off tomorrow. I'm taking the purty rifle going to the range in the AM. On Saturday, there is a neighborhood 4th of July Celebration held a block and a half from my digs. It's big as some small town events. Beer stand, corn dogs, funnel cakes, Lemon Shake Ups, Arts and crafts, hot single women (some of whom may be straight), young couples with children, attractive women my age walking their dogs, dogs my age walking their dogs, live music all day and a decent fireworks display. I usually walk down and back several times during the course of the day and sometimes nap in between trips. Of course, if I leave the neighborhood I might as well forget about parking within six blocks of my digs until after 11:00 PM.

I am off the 3rd, but work the 4th (because the State is off on Friday and not Saturday). The State is never there Saturday, but that doesn't mean that we would actually get off on the actual Independence Day. Actually I don't mind, I think most will think we are closed on Saturday so we can just drink coffee and watch the lack of cars as our pay checks grow.

Off on the 3rd. But I'll probably do the WFH thing anyway for at least a bit. There's some stuff I gotta get done.

I will be working tomorrow (3rd)...I am maxed out on my vacation (400 hours), and have about a 100 in CTO, but I have too much to do.

I do have the 4th off, and I am not on-call, so I should have a good time.

I am a state employee but work under contract in a county health clinic. The county has given its employees July 3rd as a holiday, but the state has not. So I was told I could take a vacation day, or get moved to another state health clinic for the day. Vacation days are very slow to accrue. So I'm working tomorrow...by choice...kind of.

Country = holiday
State = NO holiday
County = holiday

I love America.

I think that all right-thinking people in this country are sick and tired of being told that ordinary, decent people are fed up in this country with being sick and tired. I’m certainly not, and I’m sick and tired of being told that I am.

I have today (the 3rd) off, as Barksdale Air Force Base -- where I work -- is "closed", i.e. all non-essential personnel (civilian (like me) and military) are required to stay home. I get it as a paid holiday.

Thanks to a mandatory salary cut, and our main customer extending their shutdown period, this year I get twice the time off for the 4th, and only half the pay!

(Vacation 'til the 2nd, paid holiday the 3rd, locked out all next week.)

I'm at work today, but I get Monday off. I planned it that way. Partly because there is a good chance they'll just send us home early today, and partly because Monday sucks.
