vacation rocks but getting ready for vacation sucks

I hate getting ready for vacation because it means:
1) doing more call in preparation for vacation so you can get the time off
2) making extensive handover notes on all OB patients just in case they crash and burn while I'm away
3) stressing about packing
4) worrying about crashing in a ball of fire and dying on the flight over
5) worrying that I'm going to forget something when packing

I deal with the stress of packing by remembering that as long as I have my passport and my credit card I can buy anything that I forget.

(I also include my camera in my "Must not forget list", because it's an amazing camera and I'm just a little photography obsessed...but it's still something that one can live without while traveling.)

I'm glad you're going on vacation, I hope you have a wonderful time. I hope you don't mind me offering my two cents worth, but you sound like you're functioning at a chronically high level of stress. More than anything else, do let yourself rest - mentally at least as much as physically. It's okay to be idle. xxx

Milk - you are right. I am very stressed. It seems like every day off just adds to it. HOpefully I can forget that when I'm on vacation. I was off this weekend and had major stress dreams.
