I did not think that it was possible, but I think that I have officially achieved a state of “too much vacation.” Now, after five full weeks of relative aimlessness and life without routine, I am very ready to return to business as usual. Or start business as usual.
Don’t get me wrong. I’ve been mildly productive. And each day I find new ways to better myself and humanity (educational podcasts!). But Sabbath was meant to be once a week. If you’re not really working, then you’re never really resting, either, because you have nothing to rest from.
And they wonder why some people freak out in retirement.
