1. How many days do you get off from work per year?--3 personal days, 6 sick days, 20 vacation days, 10 holiday days.
How many do you plan to take?--all of my personal days, not sure about sick days and I will probably end up with 3 weeks to roll over to next year.
Can you roll over any to the next year?--yes, all personal days, all sick days and double of the amount of vacation days you get per year.

2. Did you go school shopping for your kids yet? (school supplies, school clothes).--I ordered supplies for ds through school so he just needs a backpack and lunch bag, dd needs everything, will be starting soon. Started school clothes shopping last weekend.

3. What color polish do you currently have on your fingernails and toe nails?--both french

4. What are you wearing today?--white shirt with eyelit cutouts on bottom, dark jean capris, white and gold slip on sandals.

5. Any plans for the weekend?--going to try and run to Kohls tonight to get my free $20 kohls money (need to wait to dh gets home from work and who knows when that could be), Sat-peapod delivery in morning, town carnival, Sun-town carnival-ds in contest and bday party after dinner.

Besides holidays, 15. Those 15 cover vacation/sick/personal. Since we cannot roll them over I will take them all. I take what ever I have left at the end of the year usually that is 5-8 days. I have taken 6 so far so have 9 left but have plans to take one and possibly two more.

2. Did you go school shopping for your kids yet? (school supplies, school clothes).

N/A

3. What color polish do you currently have on your fingernails and toe nails?

None. Don't wear polish.

4. What are you wearing today?

Green cargo shorts, navy blue sleeveless shirt

5. Any plans for the weekend?

Shooting in the morning. Next week will be busy moving DD3 so I am going to try to have a relaxing weekend this week.

1. How many days do you get off from work per year? How many do you plan to take? Can you roll over any to the next year?

I get 4 weeks' vacation, lots of sick time, and can take the occasional personal day but it's not something I need to "write down" because my schedule is flexible. I'm sure I will take every last drop of vacation time. We don't roll over vacation time but everything else sort of rolls over.

2. Did you go school shopping for your kids yet? (school supplies, school clothes).

Will do supplies this weekend due to the sales tax holiday in my state, but already purchased school uniforms for my older child. Younger one is in daycare.

3. What color polish do you currently have on your fingernails and toe nails?

My fingernails are not polished. They are buffed but I don't particularly like my nails with polish. My toenails are blue, actually. Painted blue, in case anyone was wondering WTH happened to my feet. lol

4. What are you wearing today?

Black slacks, white shirt, green accessories.

5. Any plans for the weekend?

Taking the kids to a birthday party tomorrow, and swimming on Sunday. Saturday night we may go out but we aren't sure yet.

Is "GAB" an internet acronym or someone's initials? I don't want to be nosy but I'm trying to come up with what it might stand for. Girls And Boys? Goofy A$$ Boyfriend? Gregg Allman Band? LOL

I love Styx! I met Tommy Shaw about 10 years ago in a local bar, and came thisclose to "knowing him in the biblical sense" before I came to my senses. ;-)

We can get paid for our vacation days too and any accrued, unused vacation in excess of the maximum allowed will be cashed-out at the close of the calendar year. You are permitted to cash-out a maximum of five vacation days each calendar year.
I never do this as I keep all my days for vacations and when the kids are off of school. I already have calculated that I need 20 days for next year. That is not including if anyone gets sick, a snow day, etc. that I need to use sick or personal time for.

1. How many days do you get off from work per year? How many do you plan to take? Can you roll over any to the next year? **As many as I want. I'm self-employed.

2. Did you go school shopping for your kids yet? (school supplies, school clothes). **Just a little. The school provides the supplies. My kids wear uniforms. My youngest will be wearing my oldest's hand-me-downs, the boys still fit into their uniforms. I did have to get a few things for my oldest b/c she has a different uniform this year. I was fortunate that a friend gave me a few things so I didn't have to buy her much. I did have to buy three of them new school shoes b/c their old ones are either too scuffed up or too small. I don't really get the whole "back to school" clothes shopping though. Unless the kids have grown out of their summer clothing suddenly, why buy fall clothes now? I'd rather wait until it gets a little closer to ensure that things fit properly since kids are constantly growing.

3. What color polish do you currently have on your fingernails and toe nails? **I never wear polish on my fingers. I have a dark pink on my toes.

4. What are you wearing today? **A white shirt with a denim mini skirt. Barefoot!

5. Any plans for the weekend? **Ds9 has a soccer tournament Sat/Sun but it's not far away and the games are spread out enough that it won't kill the weekend. Tomorrow night there is a movie at the pool so the kids will probably want to do that. It's going to be a pretty nice weekend so we'll probably take the kayaks out on Sunday for a bit. This is the first weekend we don't really have much going on so we're going to take it easy. Probably do an impromptu neighborhood cookout/happy hour on Sunday afternoon if enough of our neighbors are around. We've all been on vacation lately so haven't had a chance to talk recently.
