The company will be shut down from Dec 23rd - Jan 3 for Christmas. I was
planning on going back home for that time, and having a nice vacation.
I was given the option of staying and working.
Staying and working would give me a nice buffer of getting stuff done.
It would bring the schedule back in line with what management would
Staying and working would also mean that I get paid for that week.
That's not an insignificant chunk of change. And considering that I have
a buttload of money going out for taxes and fixing the porch come
springtime, it's a strong consideration.
Add to that the not-having-strong-family-stuff happening other than
Christmas with Mom, and some consternation over New Years Eve plans, and
it's looking like a shoo-in.
Kind of a bummer, because I could have used the break.
