How many more days until I get some paid time off? Eight more days!
I live for these moments. Actually being able to read a book and savor coffee in the morning is heaven to me.
I have a lot of time on the books. For the first 4 years I worked at the museum, the guy in charge wouldn’t let me take more than long weekends. I used that time to visit my mom once a year and not much else. Consequently, 30 DAYS of vacation piled up pretty quickly for me. And it keeps accruing. I have used a lot of time, but knocking down that bank of 30 days is tricky because I really cannot be away from the museum for that long. I now earn more vacation time per pay period, so I have even more on the books.
I am a snot about vacation time. A day off here or there is NOT a vacation. If I want to use precious vacation time, I don’t want to spend my time cleaning the garage or weeding the garden. I want to do something fun! I want to leave the house and sleep away. THAT is vacation to me.
Next Friday doesn’t count. It’s a paid holiday. Poor me. Too much time on my hands.
