100 Cyclists

I was excited when I heard the tour was going to have up to 500 cyclists. Since then I have become more doubtful that this would happen. However this week the number of registered cyclists bypassed 100! How encouraging and fun!

I would appreciate your prayers to soften my managers heart as I ask for a Leave of Absence this week. It would be amazing to not only have them allow me to leave for an extra 6 weeks (9 weeks total - 3 weeks vacation), but to have them support me! This is my prayer.

Good luck Dave. I hope things work out for you. I'm waiting till the new year to tell my boss and add to his stress. But I trust that God will provide and that all our situations will work out in the end :)

Thanks, I really appreciate it!

Do you think or know that you'll get the time off? What will you do if he says no? I'm pretty sure what I'm going to do, but I don't want to say it publicly :)

Well hopefully he won't say no but I have already decided even if he does then I will just quit come the time. I'll probably be looking for a new job once I come back anyhow. So how did it go for you?

Well, I didn't ask yet. One of my coworkers who would cover me while I'm gone went on disability, so it ended up being a horrible time to ask... Plus, its easier to wait...

Oh man, what bad timing. I totally understand though as one of my coworkers (though she is a project manager, so completely different position) is going on mat. leave at the beginning of May and my boss is already stressing out over that (as we are a small company). So yeah I'm going to wait a bit as well :P
