A week of vacation....
You think it looked like that?
Oh no.. you'd be sadly mistaken.
This is what more of what my vacation looked like.
Doctor's offices & hospitals & rehab centers... & license branch to renew tags... & no new sink & faucet by plumbers either... some days of feeling yucky & sick... & some days that make you stop because it takes your breath away with news that can change your world in a blink of an eye.
Oh, also didnt get to sleep in. I was up the first 5 days by 5am... 5 AM PEOPLE... WHY??? I dont know - I couldnt sleep. I was tossing & turning & just so anxiety ridden, I just couldnt sleep. One night, the Hubs & I had gotten some upsetting news & neither one of us slept that entire night at all. I think maybe I got 2 hours sleep that night... which made the next day a total bust because I didnt think I could put one foot in front of the other.
So, all that to say, I guess vacation doesnt like us very much.
You know what - its what I told someone yesterday, I need to look at it through different eyes though. I cant imagine everything life threw at us last week while having to work, so if all the things that were going to fall apart in our lives & my families life, I'm glad it was the week I was off work. Right?
& it wasn't a total bust.
We got to go out to dinner to celebrate our 24th wedding anniversary.
I got to go to a bookstore that the Hubs WILLINGLY let me go to... & I found some clearance books!! I even gasped when I saw A Curse So Dark & Lonely... I've heard all the good reviews about it.
Also got to go to Lifeway Christian bookstore - which I thought was already out of business... & got 90% off some things.
I got to read through 2 books.
I got to knit a lot.
|Working on 2 socks at once|
Got to get Bruno up & moving more during the day... which his WHEELS come in today via UPS... please let it happen. Cant wait to see how he moves in them!!!
I got to binge Living with your Self with Paul Rudd & also American Horror Story: Asylum (season 2) - perfect for Halloween.
Speaking of Halloween - I also watched Hocus Pocus probably 3 times.
Even picked up a gift or two for Christmas.
& honestly, I always say, a bad day at home is still better than a good day at work, right?
Well... maybe not totally true... but I'm still grateful for the time off.
Also grateful to be back at work really.
I really do like my job & I also am a stickler for a schedule... so let's just hope that me being back on a schedule puts a little halt to all the drama life likes to toss like a flaming pumpkin at us.
Now, if only we didnt have to deal with Daylight Savings Time....
What was the best thing about your weekend?
