As I had told you many months ago I am trying to save my time because I am getting married in Cancun in November (leaving November 3 and returning November 13). Sonia has told me that being allowed to take time off without pay is up to the administration here at the department. So I am sending this email in anticipation of not having the time to take off when November arrives. I have offered to work the Fourth of July weekend in order to save time. I am willing to save time by working weekends or whatever I need to do if that is an option. But if that is not possible then I am requesting permission to take the time off without pay that I need to make up for the time I don't have for my wedding. Thank you in advance.
Love the suggestion of calling in sick but I only have 8hrs of sick time right now and I am using 2hrs on Friday for another doc appointment. Have I mentioned I love you guys!!! Thank you for the support!!

What do you think of this?
I am requesting permission to take time off without pay for my wedding. I will be leaving for my wedding on November 3, 2008 returning November 13, 2008.
Due to medical procedures my vacation time is quickly depleting. I am willing to work holidays, such as the Fourth of July in order to accrue additional vacation time.
