Hi Fellow Fishes, It is very important to take some time off every now and then. If you can take at least a week off every 2 months, and use that to get some office work done, trust me it will change your life...
Is it typical in workforce implementations for the directos to all go out of office for weeks? Or is this just because it’s summer and vacation season…

My wife and I are considering planning a trip to Tulum, Mexico for late July. She’s slightly reserved in asking her employer (she works at a dental practice) if it’s okay to take time off with the concern her employer may feel off-put by the request. I personally hate the thought of someone else restricting my ability to make my own decisions, but also want to be contieous of others concerns as well.

I took a positive pregnancy test this morning (yay!) after a four-day vacation that involved way more than my fair share of drinking. I’d taken a pregnancy test the day I left for vacation and it was negative.

Please tell me I’m not the only one who has experienced this and whether my anxiety is warranted!
