Getting away doesn't always mean no business

WE are packed and ready to go.   We need to go out of town

for the weekend.

For my  wife it us a weekend out with family.

For me it is some quiet time  to catch up an a bit of work.

I personally can't relax unless I  know my business is all under control.

I have a back up person for any real emergency, but otherwise I take the calls.

The fridge has pop and pizza and there's chips and cookies.

Just what we agreed to for the house sitter, who should be here in 15 min.

Heck, it is a lot of work trying to get away.

Glad you are getting away for a bit of R & R.  We travel often to visit clients.  It is a lot of work to get ready, including making sure the catsitter/aka house sitter has all that is needed.  Great cartoon. A

William, it does take a lot of planning just to get away, and nice you have someone watching your business.

Sometimes getting away . . . . becomes nothing more then changing location.

Good luck and success.

I'm with you - it's impossible to completely disconnect.

It can be hard sometimes to get away without doing any business.

Getting away is always a good idea when you need and want one... or just for fun
