Coming back from vacation is the worst. Let’s just put that out there. Not only do you have to deal with getting back home (flying is never fun, but it’s certainly worse on the return trip), but you also have to change your mental status from Drinking Pina Coladas by the Pool to Available for Inane Questions and Last-Minute Requests. There’s the inevitable deluge of emails, a week of dinners to consider, and all that laundry. No fun!
And it’s never going to be fun. But it can be just a little bit easier.
