I'm making this a 5-day weekend. I have a bunch of vacation time saved up, and they told us that there will be no extension to the use-or-lose date of Jan 3. This really sucks. With the pandemic no one wants to travel. You could have a staycation! Great! MORE time spent at home. So the leave bank just grew and grew. Added to that I got a performance award last year and chose more vacation over money. Who knew we'd all be stuck at home? An email came down from on high saying we needed to schedule our time off before the end of the year. So I did. I'll probably be taking most of November off. Hopefully I'll be able to do a roadtrip to Chicago and bring Mom out here for Thanksgiving. We shall see!
