Vacation? What is That?

MV1As I look out over the back patio onto the golf course and the Catalina Mountains, I remember: I am not in Florida, I am in Tucson, Arizona. It is beautiful. The weather is cold, well, not really – it’s 65 and the sky is clear. I know you are thinking, are you on “vacation“? Well kind of. I know for the longest time, the word “vacation” has been a bad word in my real estate family, MV2almost as bad as a curse word. God forbid we should take vacation. We don’t deserve a vacation. Our clients would have cardiac arrest if we are not there to hold their hands! So I have taken a week’s vacation. It’s like I am an addict for work and can’t say the word vacation. I am afraid if I leave all h–l will break loose and all my deals will die – my clients will leave me – so I just don’t take any time off.

MV3Well I decided to go into rehab and bite the bullet and go for a week. For the first couple of days, I was a little crazy. I had my laptop, iPhone and iPad – literally my whole office. I left my poor husband home to handle all my whatever, deals, kids, dogs, my mother etc. I am happy to report: All is well. I am leaving for home tomorrow. Oh and I didn’t mention I am here visiting my sister and brother in law, who come out here every year to “vacation“.

MV5So now you are wondering why am I writing about this? When was the last time you took time off? A week-end, a week? Many of you are thinking right now: I can’t remember. Well as a former addict, I am here to say: You need to do this!  A day, week-end, a week, or even a couple of weeks – we deserve this. We work hard. Sometimes 24/7. You need time to shut your brain off, relax and enjoy the quiet…enjoy your family or just enjoy time alone.

MV8Shhh, don’t say anything but next year, I am going to take my husband. He doesn’t know it yet but he is going! Where, who knows? But we are going, even if I have to kidnap him. He is like the rest of you (not me, I learned): The word vacation is a bad word. So all my fellow REALTORS: Take some time to kick back and relax. It is important to your health, your family and you.

Until Next Monday…

    I am laughing Matey, as for the first time in 47 years Jerry and I are taking a month vacation, here in FL! Can’t believe we are actually away the whole month of February. Never had a non working vacation before…… And I am loving it! Hugs to you and Moe – see you in NYC next month!
