Destination Unknown

Guess what I have done. Go ahead, guess. Ok, it's really not guessable and incredibly random so I'll just tell you.

Our vacation time period starts and ends depending on when you started at our company. I thought I had a while. And then I found out my start date was June 6th. To add to this, we used to get paid for the flex time we didn't use, but this policy ended in January. I didn't change my mentality.

Why is this a problem? I didn't take any sick time during the entire year. So I have held onto so many hours that it is imperative that I take a vacation next week or lose it. Geez, why didn't I just get sick this past year! I wouldn't be in this predicament of having to take a vacation. Such cruelty for staying healthy. You know I'm kidding right?

So Joey and I are taking off next week. We don't know where we're going, but we're going somewhere to get away for a few days. Not too far though. Maybe Lake LBJ, maybe Galveston...who knows.

If you have any suggestions, please leave a comment!

Meanwhile, I will be completing 20 hours of Vacation Mismanagement Class before next year.


  1. What a punishment for forgetting about your vacation time...lucky!

  2. I know a really good place on Caney Lake and there is no fee to stay there...!!! Of course drop in visit from the in-laws are included in the package!!!!

  3. You know Mrs. Kate, that was a thought but we figured we'd be over there July 4th anyway. We just didn't want to wear it out. ;)
