    DH and I have a rule....I don't take my work with me, and he leaves his pager at home when we are on vacation. It's totally family time - NO WORK ALLOWED!

    I say go ahead and ask them. They can't tell you "YES" or "NO" unless you do! LOL

  4. We just returned home from a vacation in Minnesota and I took catelogs with and also left some business cards with waitresses. I got orders from relatives and am now able to write off the whole trip. I definitely ask.:)

    I was just wondering the same thing. How I can do a bit of work while on vacation. We are road tripping, so I can leave the cards and catalogs along the way, but then we'll be in Canada, so harder to do, with the whole international border thing and all... I am tempted to leave my catalog tote bag and take a pretty purse instead. Is that foolish? I mean, I"ll be mostly in Canada, so its not like I can attract shows and things....

    IMHO of course.

    I'm with you Becky! No work allowed!!! That's why I never give out my cell number to customers or hosts... We were on a romantic anniversary weekend right after I first started and got a Pampered Chef call, I was not happy and neither was DH... it happened to be a friend that had hosted a show so she already had my cell, but that told me not to give it out as a business number. You have to have time just for family and you (vacation) time!
