Take thirteen days out of the office, especially when you only planned ten, and your reward is to come back to a mountain. Your deadlines run towards you at Mach V speeds and at times you feel like an insect that just got smacked by the windshield of a truck rolling down the freeway. I think it will take me a month to catch up.
Hell, I am thinking about taking another week of vacation just to relax from coming back to the office. This cracks me up at times.
