last day before a break

November 22nd, 2006 at 03:50 am

Got the rest of our department's temp staff trained, up and running. Just in time because we now have plenty of money and pledges coming in.

Canceled today's gym class yesterday (so I wouldn't get charged). I found it hard yesterday to get through the day when folks were asking me how my weekend went. I just wanted a couple of days to compose myself. Besides, because Thursday is not igoing to happen, we scheduled for tomorrow morning.

Tomorrow's my day off. All I really have to think about is what dish to make and bring. I have Friday off and so does DH.

My sick and vacation time is turning into PTO (paid time off) on January 1. Good news - we're getting it at 100% par. We can also cash out a week's worth each year. Since I'm healthy as a horse, I have about 350 hours of sick time. I'll have to figure out the most frugal way to play this.

Savings log - 2$ tip box, 50$ into ING, 35$ into a DRP.
Spending log - 2$ coffee/milk, 10$ lunch

    Excuse me while I have a geeky moment in your blog Smile
    350 hours of PTO equals, at 8 hours per day = 43 days off PT0. Round that to 40 days / 5 = 8 weeks of PT0

    If you get disabled and can't work for a long period of time (I'm playing the doom and gloom game here as part of the geek moment) when does your Long Term Disability Benefit kick in? Do you have an emergency fund that you can draw on between when your PTO ends and when your LTD begins? If not you might want to not cash out too much of that until you have a really good emergency fund. You might have access to other programs too which will adjust the calculation.

    No problem with the geeky moment - the breakpoint between PTO and catastrophic is an important consideration. I have over 17K in my emergency fund.

    I'm at the stage where I'm interested in harvesting the $s for the interest, or if I can put it into my 403B. (Sneaky, no?) Right now I'm thinking about how cashing out some PTO will change my taxes.

    Hehe, today is my last day before the break as well.
