I had a plan, and this wasn't it. I was going to leave Monday, and be in Italy by now. First two weeks of August, that was the plan. But alas, a shortage of PTO time and cash have left me here. At work. Sitting in my cube rather than in the warm Italian sun drinking a nice chilled sparkling white wine.
On a positive note, in just over 5 weeks I will break even on my PTO time. No longer in the negative.
