The Problem with Vacation

Christmas has come and gone. Our long road trip, complete. We are enjoying the last few vacation days Mr. Bean has before going back to the grind. There are a couple problems with vacation, besides the obvious of not having enough of it.

The biggest problem with vacations is getting off schedule. We've been staying up late and sleeping in all morning. It is past noon and I've just now gotten dressed. Sundays are difficult when you get up for church and it is 3 hours before you've gotten up the rest of the week!

Another problem with vacation? It goes by so quickly. It seems like just yesterday when Mr. Bean came home from his last day of work and we high-fived in celebration of a couple weeks off. What do we have to show for it? A few more pounds, some Christmas gear, and that to-do list that remains untouched.

Don't get me wrong. We love the vacation tie, but I guess we need a lesson in time management to make the most of it next time. We will research that topic during our next vacation...yeah, right.

It's hard coming back. I feel like it takes me twice as long as the vacation lasted to get back on track. wait, now that i think about it, i'm not sure i've ever actually been on track.
