i work full time, and am not able to use my vacation time for 'vacation' as much as i'd like. (i prefer to go on vacation when it's cold not hot...but sadly cold weather time is our busy time at work and i can't get many days off.)so i decided to request random vacation days for scrapbook time since if i don't use vacation time i loose it. it feels so rewarding and great to have a scrap day once in awhile. i say go for it if you are able to!
