This is a glass half full or half empty item. Depends on the way you look at it. My company is going to do vacation differently next year, and they waited to tell us last Friday. Which means we have days we use or lose. I have a LOT of days. Nine to be exact. I was saving them for our girls' weekend and for a possible spring road trip with Joel.
Thankfully, the HR guy is being pretty flexible with me. I will get to take 5.5 days before the end of the year. And unexpected vacation is definitely a HAPPY HAPPY thing. I've been needing a vacation. So two weeks off starting at noon minus Tuesday when I need to come in and wrap up any loose ends? Pretty dang happy about that.
