Yes, and that's wonderful!
As for Carolena: How lucky you are that you live 2,500 miles east of "the dropping off point," California, where I live! You are that much closer to Corfu than I. And many hours' travel time closer, too, I might add. It's nice that your husband seems to make pots of money (or at least pots of perks) and that you don't have to work. I'm ever so glad America's immigrants are living so well. At least someone is! Alas, Southern California has gone to the dogs. There are very few jobs that have ANY perks, let alone good, long paid vacations. Someone mentioned my "break" or my "lunch hour," and I had to laugh. WHAT "break"? WHAT "lunch hour"? Legal secretaries do not get such things, at least not working for sole practitioners. And as I have posted many times before, it is not mandated that any worker have a paid vacation, so more and more employers in So. Calif. offer none.
I'll be lucky if I get to see Corfu once more before I die, let alone ever qualify for a paid vacation again before I die!
Wish I could afford to move to Ohio, where things are, apparently infinitely better!
