"I need vacation time..." 'Judith Whitehead' (Inspiration Monday)

"Guest-blogger Judith Whitehead lives in Amherst N.Y. and has worked in the ophthalmology field of medicine for over 30 years..." She talks today about the need to escape... Enjoy...

          I am about to go on  a vacation across the country for a few weeks; the anticipation is mounting day by day for I haven't had any time off for a year and desperately need some. 
My work days are full of responsibilities both personal and professional and I start the day at 5AM.  I have been spending the last few days making lists of what needs to be taken care of while I'm gone.  What I realized is that it takes a "village" to cover my duties while I am away...everything from taking care of my elderly parent to plant care, mail duty, clothing inventory for travel, medication stock up, travel arrangements, car / hotel rental and arrangements etc. 
My vacation will start from the moment I step foot on that plane for I will probably fall asleep as soon as the plane takes off, as it is a 7am flight...
I have found that vacations  are not restful when visiting family and friends.  Some day I hope to take some time and go to a quiet Island where I know no one and just chill-ax.
