JUSTICE KNECHT delivered the opinion of the court:
In this dissolution of marriage proceeding, the circuit
court of Sangamon County, after a trial on the merits, entered a
judgment of dissolution which dissolved the marriage of the
parties and resolved issues concerning maintenance and property.
After postjudgment proceedings, the trial court entered several
additional orders concerning maintenance and property. Respon-dent
appeals, contending the court erred in (1) categorizing his
sick and vacation days as marital property and (2) failing to
reduce an award of maintenance. We affirm in part as modified,
reverse in part, and remand with directions.
The parties were married on June 2, 1984, and one
child, John M. Abrell (Matthew) was born of the marriage on
August 26, 1986. On March 10, 2003, petitioner, Mary Jacqueline
(Jacquie) Abrell, filed a petition for dissolution of marriage.
