Fact: This is the first time in my career that I have taken summer vacation. It is also the first time in my career that I have taken 2 weeks off in a row.
This is a big step for me, and I'm actually having a little bit of anxiety about being away from the office for an extended amount of time. I pretty much spoon with my blackberry each and every night. In fact, the first thing I look at when I wake up? My blackberry.
This is not normal. I know.
I'm going to make a real effort to take a step back from work over the next 2 weeks. Like I wrote about the other day, I can't do it all.... nor do I have to. The show will go on without me.
I have a crazy day ahead of me which consists of: tying up loose ends at work, procuring a new suit case at lunch, (mine was damaged last time I traveled and I kind of forgot) a gym/dinner date tonight, cleaning house, and doing laundry. Good thing I work well under tight deadlines eh?
