Request it far in advance (2-3mo) and you should be safe. Hard to turn down PTO when it's a quarter of a year away!

Schedule for when you may be rolling off/around project shutdown during holidays if you have that

Plan ahead and make sure you're there when any deliverables are due - even if your part is already done. Recognition in absentia is never the same

Take it anyway.

Hello all! Today was day 1/90. Looking to get fit for vacation. 6 sets of free weight bench. 4 sets of assisted bench. 50 sit up, 100 bicycles, and some more light ab workouts. Starting slow to ease myself back in. It’s been some 5 years since my last serious workout.
