I think I’ve finally got this work life balance nailed down. I have a job that I like most of the time, love some of the time, and intensely dislike less often than ever before. I had a 12 day vacation last week (thanks Tom) and have scheduled Thurs-Friday of next week off to combine with Martin Luther King Day for a fantastic 5 day weekend. If I can keep this [long weekend every 2-3 weeks] up, and still manage to take 4 weeks this summer, I think I will have found myself a pretty perfect situation. Wish me luck.
