Is that you can’t immediately get back into the swing of things. I was not able to work for almost three weeks, and as with all other post-vacation periods I had, I feel like I am still working too slow. My mind is always drifting away to one thing or another, making it hard for me to focus on work. It’s one of those things I can’t force not to feel, and I can only hope that I’ll get my momentum back sooner than later because my PayPal account is already depleted. *sigh* It’s also one of those times when I heavily feel the burden of being the breadwinner, when we are about to run out of resources.
But then again, vacations must be taken by working people like me and you, voluntary or otherwise. Else, we’d all be grumpy and unproductive people throughout our lives. Even my mom, the chronic workaholic that she is, is glad to be out of the office once in a while to spend some time with the family. Although she still works a little online when she’s here, she says that it’s just because working even on household chores makes her feel secure. But I think she always goes back to the office refreshed, what with the entertainment that she gets from her now rowdy grandchildren.
