I need a day off

'Nuff said.

This afternoon my personal trainer (yes people, I have a personal trainer…I have joined the likes of Oprah Winfrey & J.Lo :-)) asked me "When is your day off?"

It was then and there I realized I haven't had a day off in the past 4 months (except weekends and those are sometimes used for work too :-(). After returning from vacation in UK on January 30th, I jumped in full speed into teaching duties, proposal writing, training, reviewing, etc, etc…There were also two weeks of taking care of Mom & Dad in the hospitalšŸ˜¦ It was like I crammed all my holidays in January.

Wow. Of course the question is, do we need days off? You know, one weekday where we  don't go to work? 

I think we do. Not regularly, but there are times when we need to take a "personal day", a day just for "me", to do our own thing & not think of anything else…we need to recharge our batteries every now and then. Personally I have been longing for a day off this month, but it hasn't happened yet.  

Let me know what you think!
