Trying to get our work done early so we can get home to our families is a part of the holidays.
Remember that your next email will be waiting for you when you get back.
Have a merry christmas and a happy new year!

This is a great time to step away from work, and really be with family. There is something about the Christmas season, and the end of the calendar year - that makes being with family feel right and good.
May your holiday season be filled with much peace and joy, Karl, for you and your family....
Excellent advice Karl. It is all too easy to get caught up in that "one last email".... but the truth is as you say, they will still be there when we get back!
Wishing you and your family a fantastic holiday season - may love, happiness, joy and peace always light your path!
This was funny and true and Karl! Merry Christmas and God's best in 2010!
Thanks for spreading the joy this post will bring if people take your advice and forget that last email or two. I wish you joy and peace and very little computer time over the holidays. Tess xo

Merry Christmas and happy New Year to you too!
There's always more to do. It's not overload, it's priorities or filter failure 🙂
