I try and conserve my vacation during the winter so I’ve got plenty of time off to use during the summer when it’s warm and sunny outside. Memorial Day is my next holiday weekend. Thinking about how far it is until the end of May can be a bit depressing. The LONG vacations we take are definitely worth it. Unfortunately, it doesn’t seem like it when my next short week is so far away. Lucky for me, The Wife has more vacation than I do, and she is more than willing to help me chase away the winter blues.
