Letting out a breath I didn't know I was holding... [Sep. 1st, 2014|10:22 am]
I'm taking a week of vacation. Technically, four days (I get labor day off with pay)... but that makes 9 end to end. I'm planning mostly rest because I need to learn if that helps with the fatigue.

Well, I'm a contractor - if we got paid vacation, you know how they'd run it. They'd give me two weeks of paid vacation and cut my hourly rate to 50/52 of the rate for someone without paid vacation. I swear - if I was a contracting firm. I'd split the difference but insist on no more than one week in "vacation pay" (i.e., you get paid but don't take time off). But maybe that's just because I know how much overwork hurts *me*.

Anyway. I can handle this. Easily. I've got 7 weeks of pay in my savings account, which isn't *enough* but it's more than enough given my medical status. But I want 8-10 weeks saved up.

So I was worrying. Just a bit, but I was worrying.

I just got a refund for my escrow account. About four days of pay. I won't have to dip into my savings at all. Sometimes, life works out well.

Good. I'm glad to know you're not panicking and I hope you enjoy your time off work.

Be gentle with yourself... **hugs**

I got one of those refunds too, just when I needed it to pay off a vet bill. I love great timing. *g* enjoy your vacation!
