My husband and I are going on a little getaway to the mountains of Tennessee this weekend. I'm taking Monday off work, which will make Monday the first day I've had off in almost four months, as well as the first PTO day I've taken since starting my current job.
I am so excited. Just getting out of town and getting away from routine can be so refreshing and relaxing. We usually turn our phones off while we're in the mountains, and we don't have laptops or iPads (gosh, who are we?), so we'll really be disconnected from the rest of the world. And it will be glorious.
Tuesday -- the day after we get home -- however, will be a totally different story. I expect to be completely married to my email inbox at work that day in order to catch up on what I missed during what will ultimately be only eight working hours.
Isn't that that the way it always goes?
How do you handle work-life balance? Do you take your work home with you, or do you leave it in the office? And how do you stay on top of things when it's your turn to get away?
