I'm actually taking some vacation time!
I don't do that, really, ever. Because y'all know how low stress and boring my job is, and I work from home with my dog laying next to me, and take time off whenever I want to, and take half days off on Tuesdays and Thursdays to hang out with Dad who has Alzheimers... so I have a LOT of liberty to do whatever with my schedule I want.
But I maxed out my vacation accrual (208 hours, or 26 days max). So I need to use some up.
So I randomly took off the middle week of October, since my last project is due Oct 4 and I don't have anything else on my calendar yet.
And we have a long break at the end of the year, from December 22nd to January 2nd, which I extended so it is now December 15th to January 2nd!
I suspect my wife, dog, and I will do some road trips. A couple days away here and there. But mostly I want to be at home, working on projects, playing music, organizing stuff, fixing homeowner-y things, and just enjoying my home.
A nice Staycation, mostly.
I'm really looking forward to it.
Oh. And apparently it is my 54th birthday on Sunday. So there's that, too.
