Perks of Tenure
Tomorrow will be my 10th anniversary with my employer. It doesn’t seem possible that I’ve been here that long!
We have a fabulous time-off policy and this anniversary will increase my time-off accruals to over six weeks annually! Oh, I have so many trips planned . . .
The first is Boston with my friend, Becky. I’ve wanted to see Boston for so long and it will be fun to be there during the Fourth of July celebrations.
I also suddenly have four new-found fellow travelers. Four! Single folks know just how valuable travel companions are; most of my friends either go exclusively with their spouse and kids or can’t afford to travel at all. How lucky am I to learn of four friends who can go, just at the time that my vacation accrual increases?
I’m planning on Boston in July, rafting the Grand Canyon in August or September, Orlando and Tucson.
So many places, so little time . . .
