Vacation all I ever wanted

I hate coming back from vacations.

Not just for the usual reasons; reality, responsibility, having to cook my own food, waking up to the alarm. But because I get BIG time anxiety the night before I go back to work. I wake up in the middle of the night worrying about the amount of work that will be waiting for me. Especially the e-mails that I know will take hours to go thru and respond to.

Now why, you may ask, since I got home on Monday didn’t I at least open my e-mails then or at the very least on Tuesday? Because I AM ON VACATION DAMN IT. I know it doesn’t make sense but you see the minute I start looking at my e-mail I’ll start replying and when I start replying then I’ll start thinking and when I start thinking…. well, all hell breaks loose so it’s better that I don’t open the e-mails until the day I go back to work.

I may lose a couple hours of sleep the night before but at least I actually get to enjoy my vacation. Now if you’ll excuse me I’m only on e-mail #247. Only 95 more to go...

I do the same thing...lately I do it every Sunday night too, just only lasts a shorter amount of time. Feeling your pain on the email situation. When I got back from my ever so brief 2 week maternity leave in December I have over 500 emails!!! That was with my "out of office" reply on, they just kept on sending me stuff!

UGGH...good week to you! Hope vacation was great
