Having an extra day off on July 4th was wonderful. I like my job, but that break is always nice. Naturally I had a long list of things I’d put off and wanted to get done until it occurred to me, this was no way to enjoy a vacation!

So here’s a list of things to remember on vacation, even when it’s just a day at home:
Make a plan. Write down one thing you mean to accomplish or want to do everyday. Write it in pencil because plans change and if you end up spending a day napping or catching up on your soaps, then add that to your list. Then you won’t feel like you didn’t get a break when you have to go back to work.
