Glad to hear you are refreshed.
The longest vacation that I have been blessed to take is 2 weeks. I can scarcely imagine what taking a 6 week break must be like.
What I would fear is what I would come back to. The e-mails, the potential for disaster, complaints about other staff.
Steve, what was it like? What did you do to decompress and recollect your thoughts? How did you avoid thinking about what was waiting for you when you got back?
