How is this fair? For 2009 I only have 5 vacation days left. After booking off my wedding, mini 2-day honeymoon, a camping trip and Burning Man, I only have a handful of free days. I'm so tired right now I'm thinking of using them soon to recoup and spring clean my home, but that would be a waste. If I was to use them right now, I would book a sunny escape - maybe Vietnam or Buenos Aires to visit my dear friends. Instead I'll save them for impromptu summer strawberry picking, trips to Montreal and long weekends.
