Earlier in my life, I liked to take advantage of the flexibility of my job and head back from a week-long vacation first thing Monday morning.
Now that I’m older and wiser, I’ve discovered the advantages of heading back a full day early, on Saturday night. You still beat Sunday evening traffic, but what’s more, you get to use all of the day to settle in, unpack, etc. (Rather than leaving early on Sunday and feeling perpetually off-schedule, like one does when the clock jumps forward.) And I’ll happily trade one day of vacation for a saner Monday morning.
When do you come back from vacation?
