    I've got Xmas Eve, Xmas Day and Boxing Day. Back in on the 27th. I work nights so finishing early Xmas eve morning, and back in late on the 27th. And I'm working New Years Day night (if that makes sense), because I got lucky on the roster :lol:

    I'm with you Rochie. Contrary to popular perception, the little animals don't settle down for the holidays. Lots of dog bites when relatives visit. So I will be working the holidays.

    I'll have the 24th - 26th off and also the 31st - 2nd off for New Years. I'm not taking any extra days even though I could. I'm going to sell back some of my PTO to pay off some bills so I don't want to take any just to sit around the house.

    Officially, I have 27, 28, 29 and Jan 3 off. I'll take the Thursday and Friday off and make it a full 10 days including weekends. Looking forward to it. I need it.

    I took this week off so I could take care of the honey-do list a bit and get away from the office for a much needed sanity break. I work Mon-Thurs next week and then have a three day weekend before the new year insanity starts again.
