Oh Yea, One More Thing...

I can't believe that I wrote that whole post yesterday and left out this one, relevant fact: I have been proposed to four times. By three different boys. I don't know if there is a record for that, but I feel like I am way above average... I have had a couple other emotional "I wanna be with you forever" confessions, but none was technically a proposal, and none had a ring with him. So, serious offers, complete with hardware: 4.

I already told you about one of them...the one that proposed twice. It was a long story, it started here, and I am too lazy to link to all six posts, but they are pretty much sequential, so it you click on the January archive and scroll down, it is in the first week or so of the month). The other two were in college, and I will maybe tell you about them someday, but not today. One of them was really heart-breaking to say no to.

Anyway, this is gonna be a really fun weekend! The BFF's are coming in this afternoon, followed shortly thereafter by The Mouth, and then The Body and her boyfriend. I am very much looking forward to seeing them, as they haven't been out to visit in a long time. I saw The Body and The Mouth in January, and the BFF's the last time I was in Chicago, but I am due for a visit with all of them!

Also, I am like 99% certain that some good gossip is gonna come out of this weekend (gossip relevant to no one but me...lol) but I don't wanna jinx it, so it will have to wait until next week! if you have maniacally pored over the details of this blog since I started writing it, you may know, but for all of the people with lives, I will let you know if it happens...;-)

We are headed to the beach for the weekend tonight (hopefully this afternoon...depends on how early we can get going). I think the weather is gonna be pretty good...the forecast has been improving all week. We are gonna stay until Monday (anyone else notice I have been burning through vacation pretty fast these last bunch of weeks?) and Munchkin is staying down all week with Big Sis. As far as I know, the wedding prep is pretty much all done, with just some minor details remaining...and the out of town guests are arriving over the course of the week. I'll be ready...I am really excited!

That means next week will be a three day week for me:-) I think I can handle that!!! That leads to a random question...how much vacation time do you get? Do you get separate sick time, or just "days off"? And do you like to take it all at once, or a day or two at a time all year...?

4 is quite a few... you must be a catch! :)

27 days this year for me, everything lumped into one. Usually take half of it a day or two at a time, then the other half in a lump. Have fun this weekend!

I get 10 days vacation, 5 sick days, and 2 personal days. Take them when needed. Will get more vacation when I've been here longer then 2 weeks..lol.

I get something like 2 personal days, 9 sick days (yet another reason the city of SF rules!) and 3 weeks of vacation. Most people in my level and tenure at the company only get 2 but my old boss hooked me up when I got the new job because she was sorry for them screwing me over in the past.

That said, I take random days here and there. Hopefully, next year I can afford a big, long, expensive (hopefully tropical) vacation but right now I am all about the long weekends.

15 vacation days, 10 sick days, 2 personal days... and I prefer to take them at random (a Monday off here to go to the beach, a Friday morning off here cuz I'm a little hungover, etc with a mini vacation like I did to LA - Thurs thru Tues - on occasion). Have fun this weekend - it is supposed to be nice!

With my last job: 10 days vacation; no real number on sick days, but as a result of billable hours, any time missed for sickness had to be made up anyway. So in short no real sick days. Yuck. Do not miss that part of it.

Hope you have a superduper time at the beach!

OH!!! Do you think that BFF Boy will get together with (I think it was) the Body??? I am up to 20 days of vacation, which I usually take 2 weeks in summer, a few days at Christmas and hopefully a tropical vaca for the second year in a row. Have fun at the beach : ).

Ooh enjoy the beach -- I miss the sun so much. We haven't really had a summer in the UK this year :/

As for holiday time: I dog-sit so I don't have any official working times so I can pretty much pick and choose, which makes me very lucky :)
