Forced vacay

June 26th, 2015 at 05:55 am

I've accrued too much comp time and annual days that I haven't used, so my boss is making me take a vacation. It starts next week, and I think I will be off for about 11 days.

I don't mind of course. Paid vacation? Yes please.

Trouble is, I don't know what to do with myself. I can't think of anything I want to do that doesn't cost a bunch of money that I don't want to spend.

I've thought about maybe going to the coast for a few days and try out some actual fresh seafood, but I don't even know if I want to bother doing that.

Sooo yeah I can't think of anything really. I just might stay home instead. Anybody have any ideas about what to do with time off?

It's not everyday you see a webcomic about budgeting. This one is from doodleforfood.com.

I'm here to report about absolutely nothing.

When I go through the blog entries, I am often times amazed at what people are going through. Just seems like a very eventful world.

I on the other hand, have absolutely nothing going on in my life. No drama. No serious crisis. Nada. Just going through my usual motions; personal finances are still chugging along like a little choo choo....

But don't get me wrong! I am content with the way things are right now. No news is good news in my book.

I was talking to a friend of mine not long ago, and she was telling me about all the difficulties in her marriage and how her husband is extremely spendy, all the way to hiding purchases from her. These aren't tiny purchases either. They're like thousands to tens of thousands of dollars spendy. Also, he parties on the weekends... while blaming her for holding him back from being happy or some such.

She's basically freaking out. She knows they are hemorrhaging money, and they can't keep this up forever. She's already accepted that they will lose their house at this rate. It's pretty insane... and a bit of a Deja Vu for me as well.

To me, this stuff is so crazy, and I feel sorry for anyone going through their struggles. I will cheer you on and help if I can, but overall, I am so relieved of my boring little life... and having nothing to report.
