Also, while I like the new kitty, I enjoyed the day or two of the evilish headset avatar.
I drew that as kind of a 10 minute self portrait when I was messing with my Cintiq the other day, hehe.
I found the most godsend of a product at the drug store. A 6 hour ice/numbing pad that sticks to your back. It's fantastic. ><
Is this like 3 weeks of PTO, or 3 weeks unpaid?
I have x amount of vacation pay. The longer you go without taking a vacation the more it accumulates. I've already used up all my savings by taking this long off unfortunately but at the same time I haven't picked up my pay cheque for the shifts I did work before getting hurt. I should have one week's pay from right before I left plus vacation pay. Overall I'll probably be out $750-$800 as a worst case estimate. $400 as a best case estimate.
I've basically been living entirely off my "Oh shit" savings which, thank god, was able to cover my rent and bills and still leave me a couple hundred to avoid starving. It'll be a rough month or two after this to get back on track though. =/
