I took a long weekend this past week and forgot all about work during it. I mean, completely forgot about my job. It was incredibly relaxing; I felt like I was on valium.
Of course, just from taking one extra day off, I came back to twice the amount of email to wade through. What should make life easier– and allow us to work less– has actually sped up the day and forced us to work like machines, churning it out hour after hour.
I don’t know how people take two weeks off at a time. I can’t imagine how I would ever catch up upon return.
