    consider to be lavish vacation benefits (four full weeks a year, paid, and it can accrue from year to year) and it's almost impossible for me to take advantage of it. My choir is my life, and they are amazing. It's tough to take a week off, and really irresponsible to take it even in the summer when I'm on a reduced schedule but totally impossible to take it off between October and April. I did manage to take a few weeks off this year though, not inclusive of the weeks they gave me when Terun died which they were great about, in that it was a gift and did not impact my vacation. Which I cannot take without great difficulty. Wash, rinse, repeat.
