You will probably still wake up at 2:00 am and think about how you are going to handle a problem at work. And then it dawns on you that you don't work anymore and that it isn't YOUR problem anymore. You will then return to the most blissful sleep you've ever had.

At least it was that way for me for about 2 weeks.
