I left my job that gives you 3 months paid maternity leave. It would have been nice but: 1. I worked an average of 55+ hours/week, 2. all of those hours are on my feet, and 3. I plan on being a SAHM anyway. But sometimes I think I should have just sucked it up for the money and then quit.

Pay is spread over 12 months. I put the max allowed in a summer saver each month. When the summer saver expires, I roll it over into a CD. DH thinks it's for a vacation home, but...well....I can't crush his dreams. I want a vacation home too, so hopefully my work will allow me to do job share.

Okay...I shouldn't have been such a whiner yesterday. I have it good. I think I was just surprised b/c all this time, I thought it was paid.
