The Paradox That Is Vacation.


So, I’m on vacation for a month.

I got another doctor to cover my practice. I’m paying her a ridiculous amount of money but it’s the going rate these days for a locum, so I don’t have much of a choice.  Still, it’s so nice not to have to worry about work.

I love lounging in the backyard in a t-shirt and shorts every day.  I love having a beer at noon just because I can.  The weather has been great and I’m getting a great tan.  The kids are having a ball, and overall life is pretty darn good.

But why oh why am I more tired this week than when I’m at work???  What is up with that?!  I’m going to need a vacation after this month is over.  Seriously!  And it’s only been a week?!  If I am this tired now, how the hell am I going to feel in 3 weeks?!
