Well, vacation is officially over and it’s back to Bose tomorrow. I had an amazing 11 straight days away from the office and enjoyed a very good vacation.
Each day I found myself counting on my fingers how many days I had left of the vacation. I know that sounds kind of weird because I really should have just been enjoying myself rather than participating in my own personal count-down , but I couldn’t help it. Perhaps I place far too much emphasis on vacations?
Spencer tells me that I have to stop thinking of my vacation like it’s an all or nothing event. Of course he’s right. Before the vacation I wrote down lists of things to get done since I had all that time off. I was going to get my car detailed, visit Walden Pond and hang up mini-blinds and balance the check book. Instead I had a very nice and relaxing vacation.
We stayed overnight in Freeport, Maine. I got the Mazda 3 inspected. I got caught up on all my RSS feeds and cleaned out my in box. We saw Penn & Teller at the MGM Theater at Foxwood Casino this past Thursday night. I went clothes shopping and had lunch at Red Robin. We took Minnie to the park and I cooked up some burgers. And how can I forget this past Saturday when I finally got around to organizing all my office supplies down in the basement. You may not think this would have been a big deal, but it was office supplies and anyone who knows me can attest that I love me some office supplies. Everything is finally organized and has a place. It feels pretty good.
I read a little bit this afternoon and took my last long nap of the vacation. But it’s OK. I know there are more fun things to come my way. I’m looking forward to the start of Summer and soft serve ice cream although I’m not sure in which order.
