I had all good intentions of writing a parody of “Twas the Night Before Christmas,” but due to how busy I am trying to get ready for vacation, I just couldn’t make it work! It’s always a catch 22 when you decide to take a vacation. The more quickly you work to get everything caught up, the more work is waiting for you when you return. I used to think it just wasn’t worth it but I’ve learned that a lot of my worry is self imposed. I mean, half the time no one even notices I’m gone! Seriously, we all need a break and at times we’re too hard on ourselves to just take a breather and relax. So on this day before my week-long vacation, I’m taking a deep breath and preparing to be away from the office. I can’t wait!
