SHE WORKS HARD FOR THE MONEY

I love spring in Sweden. It's not just the daffodils everywhere or the way the fuchsia glows in the lengthening light or the sheen of green that pours itself over every rolling hill. It's the SHORT WORK WEEKS. Easter is super late this year, and because of it, I have this to look forward to:

This week: 3.5 days of work
Followed by a: 4.5 day weekend
Followed by: 4 days of work
Followed by: 2.5 days of work
Followed by a: 4.5 day weekend
And then at the end of May?
Another 2.5 day work week, followed by ANOTHER 3.5 day work week.

And then after an actual (gasp!) full week of work, a 4 day work week and then? A WEEK OF VACATION.

All that and it's not even summer yet! Whee!
