You need a vacation
I know, it’s impossible to take time off work, the kids need looking after, your dog will lapse into severe depression, the plants need watering... If you’re like me, there are about a million excuses keeping you at home. So take a short trip. Think of a weekend away as a kind of catnap. A weekend away is less expensive and easier to plan than a full-blown vacation and you don’t even have to leave town. Why not check yourself and your deserving partner into a hotel for a couple of days? Indulge in a room-service breakfast, a little time by the pool and a good dinner. Keep an eye on the travel section in your local paper for hotel specials or package deals. Pampered, relaxed you’ll be almost ready to go back to work on Monday.
