leaving the office behind

Short of a large seismic event or a presentation that requires my brain power I no longer
check my work email after hours unless I am on travel.

I feel a million times better.

Can you do it?

Do you do it?

Sadly I am the not so proud owner of a "Crackberry" and check my work email every waking minute.

*sigh*

As I work from home, it's a bit intertwined with my universe. That being said, I weaned myself for two weeks recently. How refreshing, but I missed you guys!!!

I do check. In fact, it just delivers right to my inbox. Even when I am off. At least I feel prepared for the amount of suckitude I have to deal with when I get back.

Some of us have no choice in being reachable---you wouldn't want to be me if an editor was trying to reach me about a correction and I didn't respond. Or if, like recently, a tech had a problem and needed to find an original version of something. Being accessible is part of the job requirement.
