After months of not having a break from work, I was finally able to come to my boss and demand for two weeks off. Two whole weeks for me and my family. But it was not all spent on laying around in the living room watching movies. I had stuff to fix around the house, and as a responsible husband, I did them all in that time.
My main dilemma was the door. I had trouble accessing another area of the house because of a broken ball bearing. The fix came in the form of ordering spare Grant parts online. Once I had it, it was easy enough to replace the broken bearing. The other problems paled in comparison to the door. I spent the next weeks of vacation bonding with the family.
