the joys and challenges of being a working mom trying to find "balance"

Most depressing poll ever May 12, 2010

Well, maybe not EVER, but Lifehacker recently posted a poll: Does Taking Vacation Days Make You Feel Guilty? and for the majority of respondents, it does!

Hello … really? Am I the only one who FIERCELY guards my vacation days like they are little children? Who takes each and every day I have EARNED?

It’s really a problem in the United States that we work so hard and never take time off to enjoy life. We could learn a little something from our friends in Germany, France, Italy and Scandinavia. TAKE TIME OFF PEOPLE. You deserve it, and your boss will appreciate your renewed focus and vigor. I promise.

    Rock on working mom! I so agree with you. Years ago Lee Iacocca wrote a book and said that if his staff couldn’t organize themselves well enough to take their vacations, they clearly weren’t competent employees. Yes, we need the time off.
