Vacation Planning

The office is shifting to a fiscal year based administration of vacation time. Plus it is use it or lose it. Though this is offset by the fact that we get 5 more days per year than the previous accrual method and we can use the days at any time during the year (instead of waiting to accrue)

Meanwhile, I need to get my current balance to 50% of my annual entitlement by December 31st and then that balance plus accruals by the end of the fiscal year (June 30th).

I've already booked every day after the company holiday party to the end of the year...and still need to figure out how to use 4 more days.

I was planning to take a big trip in the fall, next year (probably October -- in fact, I was considering going on Linux Lunacy :wave: ) But, now I need to plan to take a big trip before June 30th.

Yet, I probably still need to plan on taking the fall trip...since I'll have 20 days of vacation to use up next fiscal year. And, to complicate things the company is also shutting down between Xmas and New Years...which further impairs my ability to 'waste' :)) vacation days.

Since just moments ago...the bulk of my vacation time usage has revolved around the Xmas holidays (usually I fly to my parents on December 24th and return December 30th...though I'm not sure about this year yet.)

Now after I went on my first cruise in 2000...I said I would like to go on more cruises in the future....since I think it was the first time I had ever been on a truly relaxing vacation. Though I hear technology has caught up and there are cellphones and Internet on cruise ships now :..(

So, I was thinking that the big vacation in 2005 will be another cruise. But, would it make sense to go on two cruises in one year.

Now instead of subjecting some poor random forum to a long rambling thought, I will try to consolidate those things into this blog where they can be more easily ignored profess to be collected thoughts from my mind.
