Three Days Off

POP was closed over the weekend, and it was a real treat for me. As much as I love my work — and I really do love it — I feel it’s important for people to take time for themselves. And that includes me!

I have been working very hard  since September, with little time off. For three months I was working seven days a week, and much of the time, I was putting in 10- or 12-hour days. Over the four-day weekend that made up my Thanksgiving break, I was sick and traveling, neither of which helped recharge my batteries.

This past week, however, I finally was able to take a deep breath, and that culminated in three days off. I’m happy to say I spent that time wisely. I slept in. I had hearty breakfasts with my handsome and strong husband. I cleaned my house. I made a delicious ice cream pie (that’s cookies ‘n cream ice cream in an Oreo cookie crust, decorated with Oreos). And I spent time with family.

What I did not do is check e-mail or even turn on my computer. I had a real break from work responsibilities, and now I’m energized. I’m happy to be back at work, happy to be starting some new projects, and happy to be updating you about the health of POP Editorial Services!

There is another long weekend in front of us. If you haven’t already, let me encourage you to try taking a break from all things work related. You might be surprised by how good you feel.
