What day is it?

Today is my last day of my stay-cation and tomorrow it's back to the daily grind and off to work. Not knowing what day of the week it was when awaking each morning was so beautiful. An odd sense of freedom that we don't have very often in our lives.( Honestly I have enjoyed not putting scrubs and work shoes on for almost a week)

In this week I have not completed one task, chore nor was I able to scratch anything of my long to-do list. Some may read that and think that's great and "oh how relaxing" but it ate me up inside for the entire time. Sitting, doing nothing makes me crazy and feel like all I did was waste my hard earned days off. I've made it this far by doing nothing this week, why start now right? Yeah, that's what I figured...(stay in my pj's all day you day? perfect)

So as I'm holding on to the last few hours of my summer vacation, I'm going to really try to enjoy it, embrace it and forbid myself to open the laptop again. The next few days will be busy enough and I figure I can use more practice in chilling 101.

I hope you are all enjoying what ever day it is today, but don't forget that our NWI bloggy meet up is this weekend. If you are interested, it's not too late, we'd love to all have you there. Really, just email me for details!

Howdy! I'm found your blog from Beth's blog and your guest post over there which I really enjoyed.

I hope you enjoy your last day off! I always have such mixed feelings about vacation. So much anticipation the day before a vacation starts filled with high hopes of using every second well. The hopes are soon to be dashed by what a complete slug I am, lol.

I'm going to try to dig through a few more of your posts - I really enjoy your dog pics!

It's ok to just veg when you are on vacation. The tasks will still be there the next vacation. I hope your day back to work is a great one....just think, we have Saturday to look forward to...I am really looking forward to a night with the gals, even though I will probably be the oldest gal in the bunch...but who cares? I'm young and crazy at heart....

Y'all are going to have so much fun - wish I could be there but make sure you blog allllll about it so I can feel like I WAS there. And yeah. I don't DO vacation all that well. I tend to get itchy from all the chillin' and want to be up doing something productive. That's okay though. It takes all kinds, right?

I think someday, you'll look back on this vacation and thank yourself for allowing you to just relax. We live our lives running around frantically trying to get everything done, you took a vacation from all of that. I hope your last day was fantastic. I loved seeing you Tuesday night.

I'm so pumped about this weekend! Enjoy your last few days of freedom. I got that "summers over" feeling when I saw them putting out back-to-school supplies at Target. Their killing me! I don't even want to think about lesson plans and classroom set-up yet. I'm such a whiner!

I've been trying really hard to do nothing on my days off here lately. It's sad that I have to try really hard...to do nothing, but that's the evil.
