I got something that brighten my day today!

The HR people were handing out vacation time today and I got 3 extra bonus days!!!! :woo-hoo:

So now I'm up to 15 vacation days this year. Actually its down from last year (had 18) but the only way I got so much was because I had accrued them from the time I started.

My 2 years here is in August, which will bump me into 18 days in 2008, but since it begins in the middle of the year they pro-rated me!

I wish they did that for us. Although now I get 4 days sick time instead of 3. Gongrats on 3 bonus days!

Congrats!!! I love extra days off! lol

Before I became a nurse and was working in the legal field, I would keep track of my overtime and take it in lieu of time off instead of time and a half pay. I would have had a better deal (money wise) if I had taken the time and a half pay, but I much prefer to have a day off Unfortunately we can't do that at the hospital because of our union, so we have no choice but to take the pay.

More time off is good for anyone!

Let's see... I get 15 days vacation, plus 9 personal days, plus 9 holidays... 29 days! That's like almost 6 work weeks!

Ooo! And I also get the week between Christmas and New Years off to!

The only down side to this though is if I get sick, that time comes out of my vacation (its more correctly terms Paid Time Off).

I don't get any DH will have 247 hours that he will get paid for when he hands in his resignation, so that's GREAT

I used to have sick days and accrued vacation days but when we got bought out we lost not only our insurance, but all that too. Now I only get two weeks a year of vacation and no more, and no sick days. So when I get sick I just go home. I'm salary so they have to pay me for 40 hours no matter what.
Fortunately I never have been sick more then one day that I went home for last year.
