I am guilty of it too sometimes though...I check my blackberry when I get home from work to see if I might need to crank up the laptop at night...it's just the nature of my job. Most of the time I don't work at night but once or so a week I stay up late.

Mind I will have to check my emails every day while I'm away but that'll be my excuse to get away lol

He has promised to NOT bring his laptop or blackberry to Mexico..we'll see... I just can't see him parting with them. I swear they are extra appendages now! Although, like a lot of you have said its way better than having him be lazy and not motivated.

Last summer we went on vacation to my moms for a week. She lives in Canada. We get charged international rates for phone conversations from there. He told and emailed EVERYONE at his work to email him only, he would check them 2 times a day (Great start to a vacation!!). No phone calls unless it's an EMERGENCY.
The 1st day of the vacation, he gets a call at 4 am from one of his guys telling him that he's stuck in Boston due to weather and can't make it to work.
At 7am Central time (Ontario is Eastern) the CEO calls him. Here's the dialog:
CEO "Dave, did I wake you?"
Dave " No, Brian did that at 4am"
CEO "Oh, okay, good"

BUT being he is military he is married to his work and I get to play mistress on the side, I know the military and our country come before me and my needs and wants... I know this all too well because I have been in the military for the past 4 years myself, though I'll be out when we get married
We are both addicted to our computers though, me to forums and an MMORPG (online computer game)
And he writes a web commic
So both our laptops will be with us and we have internet in the beach houses we are staying in for the wedding pluss we have internet accsess at the resort for our honeymoon part one, though honeymoon part two is at a gaming/comic convention so we *might* can put down the laptops for that weekend hahaha
