Be careful what you ask for

On Monday, I sent a "second notice" to my committee at work in order to remind them that I will be out after this week. They need to send me their requests by this Friday or they'll have to wait until I return.

This has brought on a deluge in my Inbox. Somehow, I've had more requests in two hours than I've had total for the last month. Now, I'm only going to be gone for 8 working days. This isn't a particularly busy time of year for us. So how can I possibly have MORE work in this amount of time than I had for the entire month of March combined?

No wonder I need a vacation.

So, yes, be careful what you ask for - you just might get it!

Sometimes preparing for a vacation makes me wonder if it is worth it, but it always is.
