My Bosses Reaction

Well a couple weeks ago I sat down with my boss and told him how much time I'll be taking off. I made sure to write it all down in black and white so he could specificly see how it was broken down. He didn't ask many questions and basically just said "it is what it is". Well he's right. It is what it is and I'll take all the time I'm alloted. My last day will be Nov 4th and I will return on March 3rd. It seems like a long time, but I know it will be way too short. Heck, he will only be 3 months when I return. I can take up to a yr of unpaid family leave, but we will have to see what our savings acct looks like after 3 months of disability pay.

I guess he liked the format just fine because he asked me to give a copy to our accountant, who is about 6 weeks behind me, so she could use the same format. We should be getting a temp in here for me sometime in the next two weeks and then I get to train them. I'm a horrible teacher, but like I always say...a monkey could do my job.

My next huge task is sitting down with the boss again to discuss my return to work plan. I'm not sure this is going to go over well but we shall see. I REALLY want to work from home and I know it can be done, but he is such a micro-manager I don't know if he'll be able to see the benefits. I have to make them perfectly clear. Fingers crossed!
