Catching Up--another post-script

The problem with vacation, it seems, is in trying to catch up after the time away is over.

Whether it is with house-related activities such as the lawns, gardens, pool or wash; or with work-related issues it seems that catching up after a vacation at times takes more effort than it should.

I also have hundreds (literally almost a thousand) images to go through and decide how or whether to display and add to my Picasa web album.

But taking the pictures was fun, catching up on the job and house issues is not so much fun.

It makes me dizzy just thinking about all of the things that I now have to do, yesterday it seems.

But life goes in and so do we.

As the vacation fades into memory, it will not be so foremost in my mind. Sadly, we planned this vacation for over a year; and now it is over.  The two weeks away passed so quickly that I am very melancholy about the whole thing.

And so I am left with memories, images, and a few stories about the places I saw and the people I met.

I will definitely remember the 6 foot Goliath Grouper for a long time. And Albert our driver. And Marek our Captain. And Nevela the woman working the desk at Oasis Marigot who made so many arrangements for us.

But the pain of catching up on the email is also very real, too.

No good deed, it seems, goes unpunished.
