Do you know what I just remembered? Of course you don’t because I didn’t even remember until today.
I have a 5-day vacation next week.
You might be asking yourself, how does one forget this type of amazing information?
Well, the last time I took a full week off was in 2013.. June 2013. As in LAST YEAR and not this PAST June. So I kind of forgot what it felt like to have an upcoming vacation.
No, I don’t love my job so much that I prefer to NOT take time off, it just never seemed to work out this year. All summer I intended to schedule a few days off and plan some long weekends but summer slipped away faster than I expected and it wasn’t until last month I realized I was over my limit of vacation accrual. I needed to take time off ASAP so I quickly glanced at the calendar and picked the week of November 10th. Which is probably the worst time ever to take vacation time since it’s November.. and it’s cold.. and I’m not traveling anywhere.
We decided not to travel this summer/fall and save that vacation money for when we desperately need it. AKA anytime from January – March when NEPA resembles The North in Game of Thrones.
I am looking forward to a week off more than you could ever imagine.
I hope to catch up on some blog reading plus maybe figure out some wedding stuff. Any suggestions on things to do during a week long Stay-cation (besides drinking my weight in wine?)
Who am I kidding? I plan on hibernating until November 17th when I’m expected back at work.
