Yeah!!!! Friday!!!!

Friday, November 19, 2010

My coworker did not show up this week (she has been gone about 3 months now. Every Monday she is supposed to come back and that happened again this week....she is supposed to come back next Monday.... we will see. I hope she is okay. I tried calling her once but she did not return my call. So I did not try again as I did not want to "bug" her. I worry that she might not come back at all. Guess what will be, will be.

Today is my special lunch in honor of my anniversary at the company. I have been there 20 years and I can hardly believe it. One of the best perks aside from great health insurance is that I get 12 hours of PTO every 2 weeks. That really adds up. What's 12 x 26? That's how many hours of paid time off I get per year. I have been using it for doctor appointments this past year and it has been helpful for that. I try to get appointments late in the day so I don't have to use very much. I am taking a week off in December and just staying home and doing errands, etc. That might give me an idea what retirement will be like.... emoticon

    It will be a very slight hint of what retirement will be like. When you are actually retired you don't have a set routine to get into right away, so there is some planning required.

    Your co-worker may be in her planning stage, you never know. Have a good weekend.

    This sounds like you do like your job. What a great perk--almost 8 week of vaca per year. Of course, you have earned it by your loyalty to the job.

    Yay for the perks of the job!
    I've got so much accumulated time that I am now taking a reduced work week until the end of the year at least. I'm taking every Monday off to attempt to use up some of that time.
    I'm easing into retirement lol.
