Having fun? Isn't it healthy to enjoy yourself, take a few vacations, and not be a workaholic? Easy said, but hard to sometimes do. Especially in the real estate business. Do you try to take a vacation?
I try and make it a point to get away at least 1 week a year. This year, maybe I'll get to enjoy 3 trips. I don't have any kids, but I did get a shore house with my sister, her family, and my parents for a whole week. With 4 kids, so much to do sometimes, it can make you tired quickly.
If you take a vacation, how many of you take your lap top with you? Do you allocate time in the morning and just at night? Do you have your cell phone near you at all times? Do you work twice as hard before you leave on vacation, so you don't have as much to do while on your trip?
Every year we stay in Ocean City, New Jersey. On the news last night, they were talking about having Ocean City open to public internet access. WOW. Imagine that, taking your lap top any where that you would go to while on vacation. Could this ruin some family trips? Just maybe, for those die hard workaholics. Me? I cut back a little this year, trying to enjoy myself. But I still feel worn down some.
The question is, do you need a vacation from your vacation? I know I will. At least I will have all of Sunday to myself, catch up on a little work, and definitely taking little cat naps throughout the day.
Overall, keep in mind why you went on that vacation. That family and down time should be very important to you. Even if you are a workaholic or even addicted to Active Rain, making time. Not sure if many of you noticed, but I didn't comment on as many blogs as I normally do. Just relaxing and spending time with my nieces and nephews was very important to me.
Lastly, I can't complain about the weather. Just a 1/2 a day of rain and 2 days of partly cloudy weather. Now off to the beach since it is mostly sunny. But first I need to wake up and get off the couch.
