Back to the Daily Grind.

Is it just me or is it getting harder to take time off?

I had been off since the friday before christmas and by this past weekend I was going stir crazy. this last weekend I was only off physically, mentally I couldnt get my mind off of work and all the stuff that I knew would be waiting for me. It really sucks that it seems its getting soo hard to just relax, and take some time off without being preoccupied with work.




HDTony.... Damn glad to meet you!

I am with you man..... It is hard to mentally detach from work. I feel like if I am not doing something productive during my time off I might as well be working....

i took the week before christmas off, and it helped to stay productive...

i have found even on long weekends (like this last weekend) that if I try to just relax after a few days, I am stir crazy and have to get up and do something

turn the bars left and go right; that just isn't right

I have the opposite problem. I can't detach from fun and get back into the work mindset.

Whats worse is I was just tallying up my vacation days etc since its a new year. with carry over I have 31 days off this year. what the hell am I gonna do with that? I know its insane to be complaining about that, but in all honesty I will go nuts taking that much time off if I cant find a way to just leave work at work.

I know in other countries they take a month off at a time and live for thier time off with only brief interuptions called work. as americans it seems we are toooo focased on work. Granted it makes us the the country we are but we have got to find a way to get some balance before we all go nuts.

I agree, even when i was sick with the migrains and sinus infection just a few months back instead of staying in bed i came into work just long enough to get the "critical" stuff done for the day then went back home. I did that for the week straight i was technically off because of sickness. its hard to just say f*ck it cause you know it will be there waiting when you come back

Ask me ill tell you...........anything I wanna hear

Not knowing what to do with vacation time is something I have never had a problem with. I doubt I will ever have a problem trying to figure out what to do with vacation time. There are so many things to do in life other than work. I mean, if I wasn't sleeping and looking at pRon all day long, there are so many things I could think of doing.

"includes 10 used-car dealers or auto repair shops, 11 liquor stores and bars--two of which advertise lingerie fashion shows and a third billed as a "gentlemen's club"--three cut-rate motels and one trailer park. The squat, brick municipal building is next to a currency exchange and a few steps from an adult video store. The bars open at 10 a.m. and close at 6:30 a.m."

Exactly thats what I was thinking too, if it was summer I could find somethign to do.

On a plus note while thinking about vacations I remembered seeing this a while back and looked it up on google.
This does look like a good time. but a bit pricey http://www.trailbosstours.com/mikes.htm
