I need a holiday to recover from my holiday!

Holidays are meant to be relaxing. It's meant for you to detress, to recharge, to enjoy.

No problem with that.

Problem is the before and after holiday.

Before holiday:
- frantically trying to finish all the work that I should have done a few days but kept putting off before because there's a 'tomorrow'.
- requests that came in from left, right and center because *ting! ting!* they suddenly realised I'm not going to be 'around'. Never mind that half of these requests are not important or urgent.
- leaving a page long of instructions for the family to please 'water the plants' and 'buy bread' etc...

I usually end up packing like 3 hours before my trip and am always amazed that I managed to get on the plane/ coach in one piece....

After holiday:
- clearing emails, junk mails and snail mails but no cute males.
- catching up with work. Why do all the exciting/ important things always happen whilst I'm away?
- unpacking, doing the laundry, more laundry and even more laundry
- sorting out photos


Work should be banned. It's bad for health. We should be on holiday all the time.

I'm so tired... and sleepy.

And I feel totally fat. Bleah! Too much eating.

The break was great. No doubt about it. I enjoyed myself with my friends. Defintely.

I just need a holiday.... to recover from my holiday. Sigh....

yea, the before and after hols are a real drag. and like you, i always pack the night before i leave... and like you, important/exciting things nearly always happen when i go away.

Good to see you back tiff.

Hope you had fun with your girlfriends like I did. Though I've been out every night to meet with them since one will go back to the states on Sat. I hope I can sleep the whole day after that just to recover.
