We Notice You’ve Been Missing A Lot of Work Lately

Today is a good day, kittens.  Today, I booked the remainder of my vacation days that I had to take before starting my year of maternity leave.

Take a beat and re-read that sentence.  I had to book vacation time before taking a year off work.

Nothing is sweeter than a day off when everyone else is working.

I can bitch and moan all I want about being underpaid and having monkeys for coworkers, but I can not complain about our vacation policy.  Five weeks a year is nothing to shake a stick at.  It’s incredible.  I don’t hate my job anyway…I work with good people (all monkeys aside) and my day-to-day tasks aren’t really filled with much stress.  Add to that 25 days of vacation annually and it’s pretty hard to complain.


I still complain about the monkeys. They deserve it.

So today, my life is the best life because of our enviable vacation policy.  I’m well aware that most places offer two weeks.

Did you know that I don’t have to work a five day work week again until November 2013?  I know, right?  THE BEST LIFE!
