Upcoming Scheduling, or lack there-of...
I just checked my pay-stub, and I currently have 94.16 hours of vacation accrued (as of Friday's paycheck).

It's mid-October, so there's about 2.5 months left this year -- 10 Fridays (not counting tomorrow). I get 3.08 hours of vacation time accrued each week. I will accrue 30.80 hours more vacation this year.

By the end of the year, then, I should have somewhere on the order of 124.96 hours of accrued vacation time.

If my understanding of the rules are correct, I can only carry over 40 hours into the new year, the rest has to be used by the end of January.

That's 3.5 months or so to use up at least 84.96 hours of accrued vacation time. Or about 10.62 days.

And I have few ideas what to do with it. Finances are tight -- buying the car put a greater strain on me than I thought -- so long trips, staying at hotels, etc, is right out.

Ah well, something to think about, and something to solicit suggestions for.

Yes, all but 40 hours of vacation time accrued by the end of December has to be used by the end of January or it is lost.

The rationale behind the extra month is so that we can spread the "OMG I gotta use up all this vacation time NOW!" out and not have a skeleton crew in late December.

If I had the funds to fly to England, I would give it to a contractor to work on our house (or the Tax Man... September 29th I paid off the 2012 City Property Taxes on our house, and September 30th I received the 2013 School Tax bill on our house).

I don't have a time machine, so going to your final Event Horizon party is out.

I did consider the possibility of a late-December trip to NYC, but I think the folks we'd want to try to stay with would be full-up hosting you ;-).
