    I wish I could. Being 100% commissioned it is pretty hard to do that bc. then I would not get paid. That is also probably why I have 4 weeks vacation saved.

    I had to answer no since my girlfriend is a stay at home mom ::). She does all the hard work... take care of the kids and the tank. She does however call me at the office once in a while for reef related questions so i could say i take care of the tank while i'm on the job :p Besides, being the only income of the house with 2 kids, i cant afford taking off work and she really does a great job with the kids and the tank.

    Being an owner of my company I have gone in late, left early, and taken a few hours off during the course of the day to deal with tank issues. This was in the beginning. Since then, the tank has more-or-less established itself so any maintenance is done on the weekends.

    I have warned myself many times about missing work and I always reply that if I don't like it then I should fire me. ;) :p
