Bathroom Breaks- That's right, for the next two weeks you can go to the bathroom whenever you want! Enjoy it, friends. You've earned it!
Making Appointments- Maybe it is just me, but my schedule seems to exactly align with the lunch break at every single doctor's office in a three county area. If I find time in my 30 minute lunch to call for a doctor appointment, they are inevitably closed for the lunch hour. Well, ladies and gentleman, not during break! Get out that phone and make the call at 8:01...you know you're awake anyways!
An Uninterrupted Planning Period- You go into break thinking this will be the one where you don't do any work....Yeah, right! This is your only chance to make a dent in the pile as you try to catch up. By the third day, you are back to work. The good news is you can work from your couch in your PJs with glass of wine in hand. Who wouldn't enjoy the ten day, 24-hour planning period that is your winter break?
Leisurely Lunch- Have a nice and slow lunch! Consider going out to a restaurant. In fact, free free to go crazy and take a whole hour to eat...in a chair...without doing work.
Wishing you the most wonderful, relaxing break. You're almost there!
