Imperfect relaxation

I'm a few days into my vacation so far, and it's been sort of relaxing.  Not super relaxing, but decent enough.  I've kept my mind off work, but I've also had a lot of stuff to do.  I still have a bunch of appointments that I need to schedule today, but I guess I'd rather get all of that stuff done now than have to deal with "necessary crap" every day for the rest of my vacation.  Still, if it weren't for taking a bunch of vacation time, I'd have to do all this stuff and work, and then I'd be really stressed out, so a state of imperfect relaxation is certainly preferable to all that.

I've been getting some World of Warcraft time in.  I got my druid to level 80 (the level cap), and my shaman is up to 77—almost there.  Once they hit 80 I'll start devoting more time to the long list of games that I really want to play that I've put on hold: Red Alert 3, Fable 2, Fallout 3 (thanks Jason), King's Bounty, Assassin's Creed, and there are probably more that I've forgotten.  My greatly increased focus on diet and exercise is taking a significant toll on my leisure time, which is starting to really get on my nerves.  Once the program is over and I don't have to deal with hours and hours of scheduled appointments each week it should become much easier to deal with, but for now, it's driving me a little bit nuts, slowly.
