Vacation From Work

Hi everyone. Here's hoping that everyone is fine and doing good this Monday morning.

Normally, by this time, I would be sitting in my desk and giving out orders and monitoring the performance of my team at 'work'. However, right now, I'm still in my Chuck Norris pajamas sitting on my bed watching the world go by. I'm on a vacation leave from work. Three days of fun, fun, fun!!! Plus two days off and that's five days for me to have fun and attend to other things.

Anyway, was suppose to go out of town with my buddies but that didn't push through... conflict in our schedules. This is a different set of friends. Was able to go out to the beach last week though. Will make a post about it. Or two perhaps. Anyway, decided to go through with my vacation leave... there's a lot of other things I can do to spend my time. I don't understand people wanting to have an itinerary set before asking for time off from work, can't they make up something along the way? I guess not everyone is as spontaneous as me. this morning will be spent here in Persona Paper and of course, I'll be watching and later on the season finale of The Walking Dead. Should be fun!!!

Oh well... I've always believed in achieving work-life balance and a vacation leave once in awhile definitely contributes to that!!!

How often do you take vacations from your work? What do you usually do and where do you guys go? How many leave credits do you get in a year?

That's about it. Cheers!

I'm assuming that leave credits are the equivalent of paid time off, which is what my husband has. I am a public school teacher, and I earn sick days. I don't take them unless I have a real illness. I get three months off without pay, so that's when I take my vacations. We go on a proper vacation at least once per year.

Just make sure you don't spend your whole time here on Persona and forget about going out into the real world to have fun.

Leave credits are paid time off MelissaE . Godo to know that you go on aproper vacation once a year. What do you usually do and where do you go?

Thanks for the reminder valmnz . I'll be here in Persona Paper for most part of the day though and then I'll be off.

I hope you enjoy the time off. We have to plan my husband's vacation time because we have to have someone to house sit the dog. :)

I hope you are able to enjoy your time off. It's nice being able to get a break from time to time.

Vacation from work? It is now Holy Week here which gives us a 4-day vacation starting Thurday. We surely would enjoy a vacation outing.

I'm enjoying my vacation time so far. This WrestleMania is epic!!! Later on, it will be some training for me in the gym.

I didn't know Chuck Norris took vacations?

You know what happens when Chuck Norris relaxes... Neither does anyone else and they don't want to. Chuck Norris went to WrestleMania once, walked away with the trophy, and nobody got hurt... much. One of the early movies Chuck Norris did was with a "walking dead man" as the villain he put down the well... True Story.
