Office Manager Lady called me to say that I have 14 vacation days left in 2002. I can carry over 5 days to 2003, but that leaves me with 9 days to polish off for this year. I'm using 4 of those days to make my Year End holidays into a complete 2 weeks off (our company is closed between Christmas and New Year's anyways, so I don't have those days to worry about).
I hate taking more than a week off at a time... the Year End holidays are an exception because everyone else is taking time off too. The last time I took a whole blob of time off was for my Engagement/Honeymoon/Vacation to Japan and Taiwan. I only officially took three weeks, but I was gone for about a month. When I came back, it took a while for the bunch to remember that I was back and take more time out of being busy to carve things off to me.
I don't have anywhere to go or anything to do. Well, that's not true, there's tons of stuff to do, but they all cost money and I don't want to do it. Husband Guy won't be able to take time off before the end of this year and I really don't want to do anything without him, seeing as how we don't spend enough time together as it is. I don't want to hang out at home, but other than work, there's really no other place [with an internet connection] I'd want to be all day.
Maybe I'll phone up the Variety Club and see if they have some interesting events or could use a volunteer for a week. I know they're doing gift wrapping at Metrotown mall and their annual Christmas party should be coming up soon.
Anyone in Vancouver getting married in December? Can I come and help? Please?
"You work too hard", Office Manager Lady says to me... *sigh*
