Anybody who knows me well knows that I’m not much of a vacations kind of guy; which means that doing things like scheduling vacation a year in advance (which for some reason, the management of my office wants us to do) is difficult.

So what ends up happening is that vacation time sort of sneaks up on me unawares.

I’ve been scheduled for vacation days the past two Mondays … of course, I didn’t know it, and showed up for work. And, since my company requires us to use our vacation time or lose it, I’m forced to take the time off. And since I have no money, I’m sticking close to home.

This may come as a surprise, but for the most part, I actually like my job; and like going to work everyday … so finding things to keep myself busy when I have time off work can be a challenge. If there was a bit more snow on the ground, I’d be up one of the canyons skiing, but alas, it’s not to be this early in the season this year.

So, for now, I’m spending my time cleaning my apartment and watching a movie. Perhaps I’ll make it out for a bike ride a bit later. And then I’ll figure out what to do tomorrow.
