"Cinnamon and Sugary...

...And softly spoken lies"

Today is one of those days where I didn't even feel like getting out of my bed. I woke up and immediately wished I worked somewhere that gave PTO. But, NOOOOOOO! I have to work somewhere that just gives you vacation time. If I'm sick, I can get paid for it, but that means I have to lie if I'm not. Believe it or not, I'm not much into that.

Right now I'm spread out on the couch w/ Kira sprawled out beside me. My lap top is on my lap, there's a manhattan on my chest, and I'm half-watching "House Hunters" on HGTV. Lame, huh? Who woulda thunk it??

I've been thinkin' back to my younger years a lot lately. Ya know, where I spent most of my time hanging with friends, going to Pegs, dancing until 1 or 2 on Thursday nights. I've not been to a club in 3 years, and haven't been to pegs in 4. Sad. Although, I remember back then wishing I'd be where I'm at now. I guess you truly do long for what you don't have.

whats the difference between PTO and vacation? Our company uses the terms interchangably.

PTO is usually used as paid time off, that can be used as necessary on the day in question. Many companies used it in place of the word "sick days." That way, it's not just a benefit for the sick, but also who just don't f'in feel like going in to work that day. My former job had vacation, PTO, and "flex" days.
