I run my own buissness and usually don't get to take much time off. However, through an extraordinary chain of unfortionate events for my current client they're way behind with their parts of the project and I'm way ahead with my part so this year I'll *finally* get my long awaited for *ten week* vacation

On the downside, I just bought this epicly crappy apartment so I'll be spending most of the time fixing it. The first thing I thougt of when I first visited my soon to be new home is the toilet from the "toilet scene" from the insanely great flic "Trainspotting".

However, after I'm done restoring it to "bachelor standard extraoridnarie" it'll hopefully feel as great getting home to my place as for Mr McGregor in mentioned clip using said toilet::

I have to say I'm probably one of few lucky ones that actually enjoy doing what I do for a living. One of my main goals when starting my own buissness was to be able to take some extra time off. Lately, eventhough I enyouy what I do, pulling 70+ hr weeks I've felt I've been "running on my rims". Having time off and work with some practical stuff/handywork for a chage (like building a dedicated, insanely potent home cinema system myself) will be a wellcome change in my life right now. For me, that's what it's all about. Set your life ut so that you can do what you like the most...and then do it...

Yeah, workers in the US probably have some of the worst vacation policies in the 1st world. What does the UK, Germany, France, Australia have (as fairly standard)?... 4, 5 weeks? We're lucky to get 2. We need to do something about this!
