Bringing Work on Vacation

I know I'm probably not the only one who has ever done this but once I took school work on vacation with me. I'm one of those people who doesn't like for work to pile up on me so no matter what I'm traveling with my laptop. My family gets annoyed with me sometimes for doing it but I can't help it. My supplemental income is from working at home so although I may not be at my daytime job that doesn't mean I'm not working. I want there to come a time when I can actually take a real vacation free from work but sadly I don't see that day in the near future. So until that day comes if you see me I will either have my cell phone out checking emails, my laptop open to Microsoft Word, or reading a textbook for reference material. Boy what a life. ;)
