I need to say a RESOUNDING yes. There are times.... It is SO needed.
Dont get me wrong, I vacation. Of recent London, Dublin and Sturgis (Yea, I ride.... Didnt ride TO there. Too long for these old bones) So between Family (5 Sons 3 being Married and several grandkids) homeowner (I love to tinker) and friends and other hobbies (Bowling, Golf).... there are occasions, where a day ALONE, in my house; just vegging out in front of an Xbox or PC is REALLY what the doctor ordered.
Wifey is so supportive of my vice. BUT, when playing she will undoubtedly yell out something at a key time, or ask me to come here and see how she put something. LOL Just last night at a KEY time in Mass Effect 2, I missed some lead-in dialogue to a "Pick the responce" time. yes the FINAL question was there, but I missed the back story.
So yes, I have spent a vaca day or two EVERY year completely vegging.
PLUS, I get 5 weeks and 3 floaters... I cant AFFORD to take real vacas that often.
