Will - like me, I know you enjoy a quote.  What do you think of this one?

I have never believed that vacations are luxuries. They are our necessities–just like shelter, clothes, and food, they make us feel like humans and not like animals that care only for survival.                                                                                                                                                               Alexander Babinets

I don't take summer vacation as we live in a tourist town so it is like being on vacation. We do take a winter vacation it is a much slower time and can get away for a longer period of time without feeling too guilty however each year it has been getting longer. I do work while we are away except if there are showing then my partner that covers while I am away does the showings. My wife says it is not a true vacation as I am still working.

Took 3 weeks in May this year, looking at another 1-2 weeks possibly this year.  Maybe a day trip or two.  Taking the afternoon off later this week too.

I'm treating myself well this year.

One week last month for rock climbing at Seneca Rocks.

Next week to revel on Florida's Atlantic beaches with a trip to visit Hemingway. Followed by a week of attending a series of Expos in Orlando.

But, I'll still be checking in on AR.

It depends on how you define vacation days.  My husband and I always took about 6 weeks in the winter and other days throughout the year as the opportunities arose.  However, I took my work "equipment" and files so I could do anything I needed while away.

Most years i can take a week off in winter when it slows to head to the Bahamas. Other vacations are usually shorter like a 4 day weekend away.

I tend to take them when necessary - no limit but, typically only about 10-14 a year. Certainly not what I had as a nurse but, I'm comfortable with that!

The great thing about owning your own business is that you can take as many or as few as you want!
