Dream Vacation: Or why that's harder than it looks

Jaime Samms

Vacation:  noun, va·ca·tion often attributive \vā-ˈkā-shən, və-\ 1: a respite or a time of respite from something : intermission 2 a : a scheduled period during which activity (as of a court or school) is suspended b : a period of exemption from work granted to an employee 3: a period spent away from home or business in travel or recreation

That isn't even a complicated or confusing definition, when it comes to it.

Does it count if I take respite from work to write and then respite from writing to work? I do suspend work to write. Mostly. But then I don't have a boss, so... Or, I am my own boss. Does that also make me my own employee? Who gives who the exemption, then??

And if I spend time away from home to travel to the grocery for food or to the dance studio to catch a glimpse of my daughter for a reminder of what she looks like, can that be considered a "period spent away from home" where I also work?

...I think I need to hire a management/employee liaison...

Wait. Would that come out of work earnings, or royalties? Would that person then require scheduled vacations, as well? Maybe I could just do that myself. Hey! and then offer time off in lieu of pay!!! Perfect!!!

How does one take a vacation from the three ring circus in one's own head? Anyone? Beuller?
