My wife and I just got back from a mini vacation. It seems like that is all we can afford most times. A mini break is better than no break, and we always try to plan it around our anniversary. This year we went a little early because a couple of guys on my shift already had dates on the calendar. My boss said I could pull rank since those dates were not approved yet. However, I have been married for over thirty years, and a few weeks do not matter. I do not like to pull rank unless it is absolutely necessary.
