I wish I could take a vacation and not have the stress of worrying about my family's financial well being. We are going on vacation first week in September and my gov contract is up for renewal - there is a chance a new company could win and I would be unemployed! Since I am on a gov contract - my company puts you "on the bench" for 2 weeks to see if you can find another place before they show you the door. I was on the bench after returning my maternity leave since my other contract had been cancelled while on leave and they knew better than to do it while I was on leave - can we say lawsuit...anyho - here I am again.
The last 3 years have been filled with this. Each trip to Ft Lauderdale has been filled with job worry - and last year's vacation to update NY was filled with fear since I was starting a new job on my return. I guess I will worry no matter what - better to worry on the beach. I am just concerned about the $ I could be saving by staying home, but I would be out about $500 since the tickets and car are already paid for...I am not sure what to do yet.
