I have been at my job since June and I have only taken one day off. I have close to two weeks of vacation/personal days that I will need to use most of before the end of the year (some can carry over, and I want to make sure to do that). Time to start planning what to do!
Change driver's license
Doctor's appointment (I went for my physical in January but I could go again? I do need to find a local doctor here.)
Do a huge once a month cooking day
Go to the mall (seriously - I hate shopping on weekends when everyone else is there)
Go look at houses
Create an in case of file and declutter our filing system
Create a will
Check on all our insurance coverage (renter, car, life, disability) and make sure it's enough
Get my car ready for winter
Pretend it's a weekend and get nothing accomplished
Travel home for Christmas
Half of my vacation days can go to next year, which I'd like to do. At my old job I was about to be bumped up to three weeks vacation, so I'd like to carry over my days from this year and make it feel like that's happened.
I also haven't used any sick days, and they don't carry over. I used to be a real stickler about using all my days, even if I wasn't sick, and I still feel like that's morally okay but I'm not so interested in doing it anymore. I like my job, and I don't like lying to people that I'm sick when I'm not.
What do you do with your time off, other than travel? What else can I do during the week that I'm not thinking of?
