Hello all- and Happy Valentine's Day. My day at work was the WORST. My class this year + sugar + excitement = disaster. Luckily, I got home from work, went for a run with Eric and felt infinitely happier. I have the best valentine.
Tomorrow afternoon marks the beginning of a February Staycation for Eric and I. For the past 3 years on February vacation we have journeyed off to Sedona. Unfortunately, the trip wasn't in the budget this year, so we are going to miss it a lot. It's always a really relaxing trip and breaks up the terrible winter weather we get up here. But, on the other hand, it's nice to not have to worry about getting on a plane, spending money, etc. I was actually a lot more excited about staying home this vacation before I was basically stranded at home for 4 days last weekend because we got close to 30 inches of snow, but anyway! Let's hope that doesn't happen this week!
One of the reasons I like to go somewhere over vacation is that I'm terrible at staying home. When I'm home, but don't have to work, I feel obligated to get crap done around the house. But this vacation I REALLY need a break (yes I realize I just had a vacation 2 months ago, but if you dealt with even the first 10 minutes of my day today, you would understand, I promise). I do have to do a little bit of work unfortunately, but I don't want to spend the rest of my vacation "getting stuff done" and/or feeling guilty if I don't get stuff done. SO, I'm setting a plan of things I want to do… fun things and not so fun things. Then, that's all I'm holding myself to. There will be no other expectations for myself. That is all. Hold me to this please.
1. Finish report cards. Who planned conferences right after vacation? I hate them.
2. Clean my car.
3. Clean off my desk.
4. Clean out my inbox.
1. Finish reading Little Women. I like this book, so why is it taking me SO long to read?
2. Go to yoga twice.
3. See at least 3 friends.
4. Plan our trip for this summer. Buy plane tickets.
Do you ever take Staycations? Are you as bad at relaxing as I am? Haha, I hope not!
