Today I drop Emily off at the airport so she can go on a cruise (on my brother’s cruise ship) all next week, while I toil away up here in cold/dark Maine, wishing I had more vacation time. I don’t think I’m that greedy in wishing I had enough vacation to take a few days at thanksgiving, a week at Xmas and a week or two for the rest of the year. I REALLY miss working for a college where the Thanksgiving and Xmas time was automatic, on top of my vacation time.
I also wish I worked somewhere where I could take advantage of unused sick time. Last I looked I had around 280 hours of unused sick time, and like 10 hours of vacation time. If I were a less honest person I could have LOTS of time off. Sucks to be me I guess.
