Planning for a Vacation

Organizing for Time Away From Work For a Vacation

Plan Ahead

If you know you are going to have scheduled time away from work, then it is easy to plan for ahead of time.  For instance a vacation or a planned medical situation.

Seems simple right?  Just plan ahead and all will be taken care of?  Of course it doesn’t always work that way.  Sometimes depending on your job you can already be so over taxed that you aren’t able to get to the things you need to for a week ahead.

But make a list of what you need to do and try to work on it one thing at a time.

When you Don’t Plan Ahead

There are times when we aren’t able to plan ahead and situations come up.  An accident or illness are good examples.  In those cases hopefully family members can help out to notify the proper people to take care of the necessities for you.


For bloggers there are several options.  You can not put up posts (like I have not for the last several days this week. ) This is our vacation week and I took some time off from this blog.  I have been still working on my Chat with Sandy blog on a project I was doing for www.Holiday Roads. info (look for our family posts..Ohio to Marblehead with dog Gizzy!) …so I just took some time off from this blog.

I could have had guest bloggers, I could have prepared posts ahead of time.  I didn’t do either this time.  I think it is the first time in a year & half that I have not posted this many days in a row.  But I needed a little break.

Blogging is like that. It is my own business..I can post several times a day or not for several days.

Tomorrow I am having a small surgical procedure ….and will probably take a couple more days off from blogging.  I will just have to see how I feel.

Planning ahead is great and is ideal.  It is the best way to decrease stress and anixiety when you know you are going to be away. But you know what….things work out either way. You may have more to do when you come back if you have not planned ahead…but more than likely the work will wait on you.

Take a vacation this year…give yourself a little break.  We can all use them.
