Is there anything harder than this?

Is there anything harder than going back to work following a weeklong vacation?

Of course there is, but most people would concede that doing so is no easy task.

I went on a trip to Boston with my wife last week and had a great time. So great, in fact, that I dreaded having to go back to the office today. It was a miracle I was even able to get up on time!

No, it's not that I disdain my job. Sure, there are things about it I wish I could change, but I like certain aspects of it.

It's just difficult to get back in a working groove again after having spent several days sightseeing and soaking up as much history possible.

And it isn't as though my brain was on vacation during the trip; I spent a great deal of time reading descriptions on exhibits and buildings.

The bottom line is that most of us would gladly prefer sauntering around a city and hitting up popular sites and attractions to being holed up in a cubicle for eight hours every day.

Somehow, though, we're able to get back in the saddle eventually and churn out work as we did before embarking on such trips.

Do you also find it hard to get back into "work mode" following a vacation?
