Spring break! Why do I feel like I have to do a bunch work?

  1. Already this morning I have cleaned the house, fed the animals and the kid. Now I'm wondering if I should paint the bathroom and clean the porch. Why can't I just kick back and relax? I think we, as nurses, always feel like we have to be doing something. Does anyone else feel this way? I relax when we go out of town but if we stay home I feel like I have to be productive. Crazy or what?

    I know what you mean. I'm on vacation for another week. I watched tv for over three hours the other night and felt horrible guilt. It took me about five days into vacation to feel rested and relaxed. I guess we go go go go so much it's hard for us.

    Enjoy your time off.

    Now I've cleaned the porch, both doors, back and front and put out the hummingbird feeders. Thinking about painting, but I have to go get the paint. Also, I have a dentist appt. at 1 for a broken tooth (molar-really scares me) so I'm trying to pace myself since I still have the rest of the week. Also have done four loads of laundry. Oh well, maybe I'll relax tomorrow. ( Probably, not!)
