Happy Monday! What a wild week. After a week in San Diego and a glorious few days at home with the remaining PTO days, today, I went back in the real world.
Isn’t it funny how routine life can get? I didn’t access Facebook, Twitter or blogs while I was on vacation. It killed me the first day. I was taking pictures and thinking of things to say on my own blog about what I was doing. I was wondering how Susan was, whether Emily‘s baby was a fruit or vegetable that week and what the Petersik house had going on.
Then, I realized, I was ignoring my vacation time! So, I (temporarily 😉 ) quit. Cold turkey. But, I’m so glad I did. Luckily, I had a ton of things to distract me…
I shook up my routine so much I now need time to get back in the rhythm! 🙂 I was grateful to come back to my wonderful Mr. Greenhorn and sweet puppy girl. Even doing our more regular-life tasks, like visiting Lowe’s home improvement store for wood stain and a hose, is still fun.
(side note, this little prop fun is one reason we heart Lowe’s…however, does that rope belt look inappropriate to anyone else?)
Going back to work I had 547 e-mails awaiting. But, luckily, I also have an award-worthy boss who held down the fort so I could rejuvenate (he also resolved the bully situation while I was gone, woot!).
So, although I’m back to the real world, I sure enjoyed the break (Hi and thanks Mom!) and have to wonder if the rest of you are taking the breaks you need. So, I wanna hear. What did you try this summer? Did you go anywhere? What is your getaway?
