Today is my last vacation day off from work and I want to make the most of it. How do I do that? Honestly there are so many things I could possibly do today that I don’t know what to do. I can go to a book store and eat lunch at a local restaurant, I can stay home and work on my office, I can start a new crochet project or even work to finish one. I have a hair appt today so that limits me a little bit in my possibilities.
I think the problem is I want to do something meaningful today since my last three days were riddle with cramps and nausea. Not the way I intended to spend my vacation, but mother nature will always be a force to be reckoned with. I must say though, despite the temporary physical hindrance, I did get a lot done during this time. I started the journey of making my office a refuge, I helped a friend in her journey. I made another failed attempt at ice cream (I will keep getting better), I made a nice dinner on Saturday. So, while I can berate myself on being upset that I didn’t get as much as I wanted to done, I could just focus on the positive and on what I did do. Even despite feeling like absolute garbage and like my stomach was being spliced in half, I accomplished things I have yet to up to this point.
I think today I will go to a book store and eat my lunch at a restaurant. I’ll do something that I can’t normally do during the work day. Maybe that also too is what being on vacation is about. Not just playing catch up on all things you think you should get done during your normal week, but also doing something special. Maybe not all the days you have off, but at least one or two.
What’s a break if you don’t use it as one?
