I am at the New Jersey Shore with my Mom for Easter weekend. We come every year and it’s our way of saying goodbye to Winter (don’t let the door hit you on the way out) and hello to Spring.

Being here is the first time in over 3 years that I am truly able to relax. The past few years when I was lucky enough to get away I could not escape the fear and worry that came from trying to find a job. I felt guilty for being away.

Last October when we left the ocean for the last time in 2010, I wondered where I would be working when I returned in the Spring. (Click HERE for that post.) Now I’m back, six months later, and I’ve been working for four months now and so far, so good.

I’m here with my Mom, the ocean, the sand, the boardwalk, and a corporate credit card, a business card and work laptop I carry with me proving I’m employed. I don’t know what Merriam Webster’s definition of “vacation” is, but for the first time in years I’m truly on one.
