Answer me this

I need your opinion:

I’m desperate for some time off. The last days off that I had were in April, and they were spent entertaining two teenagers. The last days off before that were our fabulous vacation in Stowe – but that was February. So I’m thinking that I might want to take July 5th and 6th off.

The thing is, Matt can’t take those days off. He’ll have the 4th off, but he doesn’t get as much vacation time as me. I technically get 3 weeks a year, plus 3 days of ‘floating holidays’, but my boss follows this policy somewhat, uh, loosely, so I don’t really have to worry about counting how many days I’m taking. So, I could definitely take those days, but then I’d be sitting at home by myself, which sounds glorious in theory, but I’m afraid that what’ll really end up happening is that I’ll spend all day waiting for Matt to get home so that I won’t be bored and lonely.

Also, we’re going to New Jersey for a few days in August because Liz and her fiance will be there. (And, OMG can I tell you how freaking excited I am to see her? I just can’t wait. It’s going to be great and we’re going to have so much fun and damit why isn’t it just August already???) So I’m thinking maybe I should just try to wait until then?

But, that said, it’s not like I have to choose between taking a few days in July and a few in August, and I’m sure I can find something to do with myself. (Read. All day.) Hmmm… what do you think?

    You work so hard I think you deserve a few days off. Maybe you could plan something special for yourself like a manicure/pedicure in the afternoon or something. Or you to some tourist attraction by yourself – that’s kind of fun.

    I’m really looking forward to August too – it’ll be awesome.

    Go. Take the time off. Relax with your own self. Do what Liz says.
    My husband and I take one week a year off together. The rest of our vacation days are spent seperate and happily doing our own thing. Tis the best thing we do!
    Its how we’ve stayed together for 10 years!
